    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Heat Recruitment (Bristol, England).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. There was an initial telephone screening which lasted for a few minutes until I was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview.

    Firstly I met with one of the Sales Managers for a run through of my CV and to discuss ambitions and goals for the future.

    Usually there would be a second stage on another day but as the other Sales Manager was free at the time I also had a brief chat with him there and then. Again I was asked about reasons for leaving previous jobs, goals for the future, why am I interested in recruitment, what motivates me, etc.

    After this, I was shown the office and taken to another meeting room to complete a task. I was asked to create a script for a sales pitch to try and bring on new business for the company.

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as I didn't have any direct experience for the role. I took the salary that was on offer but after being with the company for just a few months my salary had already increased to above the top indicator on the job advert.

    Graduate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Heat Recruitment (Bristol, England) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Dropped my CV in and received a phone interview and was then invited to second stage interview at head office. The interview was about an hour long and covered my CV and personal skills. Very little recruitment was discussed. Most of it was about personal development and how I want to build my career. The interviewer was very casually dressed for an office environment and told me this was for a "dress down" Friday. I know this not to be true as a friend of mine interviewed there the day before and told me that the gentleman was also dressed very casually for an office setting.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Heat Recruitment (Bristol, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone screening followed by a 1 hour interview. The interview was fine, a few irritating questions that were exactly the same as the last but worded differently. At the end of the interview we discussed outside of work positions and hobbies, and the interviewer was deeply unimpressed with my hobbies and volunteering, it was made very clear that I should expect to work very late in the evenings and any social responsibility would not work with them. The work hard play hard culture of the company was emphasised too much, made it seem chavvy and infantile. I asked questions about the specifics of the job which were interpreted as a lack of understanding of the job. The whole thing felt quite rushed, but I was most put off by the party culture the interviewer went on and on about. I didn’t feel this was appropriate for a first interview and isn’t the sort of thing I’m looking for in a job.
