    Talent Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aspire (Birmingham, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    An in-depth telephone interview with a Talent Manager ascertaining my strengths/weaknesses, why I wanted to leave my current role, etc. We then arranged a second stage very shortly where I met with two Talent Managers for a competency based interview and a role-play involving speaking with a candidate looking for work.

    The Chairman was then invited to sit in on the role-play along with the Talent Managers. Standard, quite nerve wracking but it's a view for them to see how you handle pressure.

    The only downside is the fact that there's been no further correspondence despite chasing...especially with a start-date of the 5th for the new team. If they have informed those that are successful then where are the rejections? I'm not the only one this has happened to...

    I'd also update your comms and website that say the Talent roles are three stages interviews.

    Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aspire (London, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Started off as a headhunt given my experience in recruitment. Decided to give it a go as there was an international offering on hand. Had an initial 2 telephone calls from members of the business abroad before proceeding onto a face to face in London.
    After a lengthy discussion and disagreements with salary, it was decided that I would be sent a breakdown/structure of the commission/bonus scheme to perhaps allow me to review the salary expectations. Was never sent any follow up, not provided feedback ever since.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aspire.

    Interview

    a waste of time on so many levels. CEO is smug and arrogant and will try to catch you out in the role play. (Which by the way is a ridiculous thing to do in an interview process but this company do it as a standard) Also the offices are tiny and look like an overpacked call centre! CEO is clearly someone who micro manages and will try to catch you out in the interview. didnt get an offer and even if I did wouldn't have been interested. Oh and the salary ranges they are advertising on their website are not a true reflection of what they actually pay.

    Unprofessional. Job was falsely advertised and the interview was essentially spelling out the truth: you're applying to be one of those people you see selling sky tv in shopping centres.
