    Permanent Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brook Street (Boston, MA (US)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    First you do a phone interview. This is very basic they just ask why you're looking for employment. Next they bring you in and you have a one on one followed by a role play. If you get through the role play they will offer you in less than 48 hours. Pretty quick process should have been the red flag

    Customer Service Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Walsall, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brook Street (Walsall, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I have emailed to every recruitment agency within my local area in Walsall including Brook Street in the town centre - surprisingly unlike the others, they replied in an instant. Even when I emailed recruitment consultants on LinkedIn, they also blanked me.

    The branch manager at this specific branch emailed me about some opportunities available in the area and they all look very appealing.
    She was ever so friendly and helpful she told me that even though I lack experience in the field she still offered me to register which was more surprising because these days recruitment agencies are looking for more experienced candidates than those who extremely lack them (basically if you have no employment at all you have zero chance of registering).

    This is a great starting point for me to probably enter so many opened doors of excellent opportunities!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Brook Street (Birmingham, England) in February 2015.

    Interview

    3 interview stage process - initially a phone conversation during which you are invited to a face to face interview at branch. Lots of questions around sales, impression of the recruitment roles and what you expect to be difficult. Maybe a role play with the Branch Manager, if not most definitely with Senior Management.
