    Lead Android Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Opus Talent Solutions (New York, NY (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    The interviewer, an English guy out of New York was high pressure. An excessive number of calls that reminded me of having a person that I'm dating trying to stalk me. They also tried to get my references before interviewing so that he could trawl my network for more business leads.

    I made it through the rounds and supposedly had an offer for them, but they were poor about communicating the terms of the offer. Also when they, unofficially made me an offer it was an exploding offer that expired in less than 24 hours. I told them I needed a more reasonable period of time to decide and let it explode.

    Senior Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Opus Talent Solutions (London, England) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Telephone interview - was very nice experience and I was followed up at every step of the way.

    Face to Face interview was horrible. The director did not like me the moment she saw me and kept trying to intimidate me in the interview pulling faces whilst asking questions aggressively. She looked at me like as though I had misogyny written on my forehead and kept trying to make points about feminism and was constantly trying to over power me in discussion almost insecure that she must be totally dominant. I literally gave up half way through the interview. I'm a brown guy from London and it was plainly obvious that is all she saw along with whatever stereotyping she could think off. I would not have accepted a job even if offered, never.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Opus Talent Solutions (Bristol, England).

    Interview

    During the assessment day we were first asked to answer questions designed to probe our character (see below).

    Afterwards we were split into groups and given 1/2 hour to prep a dragons’ den style pitch in front of 10+ consultants. All this was testing was your ability to keep talking even if the content was nonsense. Not much intelligence required for this step (and most of the day in general)

    Next up was a role play with one of the consultants in which you were given a situation to defend (vaguely related to recruitment). There seemed to be an emphasis on saying absolutely anything, regardless of truth, to satisfy the ‘customer’.

    Then lastly there were 2 face to face interviews with a consultant. Not an interview in any conventional sense: they just asked you to guess a person they had in mind - it was like a game at play school, hardly what I was expecting from a supposedly professional company.

    During the day we had the chance to meet some consultants - they all seemed nice, but equally, I got the impression that they were under strict orders to answer our questions in a specific way, therefore I wasn’t sure how genuine their answers were. Having read a number of reviews on glass door, I feel that the impressions given during the assessment day were all fake and that actual day to day work there was not a nice place.

    I also had the misfortune of communicating with TP which was a complete waste of time and he messed me around no end.

    The assessment day was disappointing and unprofessional from start to finish. I wasn’t that keen on recruitment anyway, but my experience with opus made me cross off any potential openings within recruitment in the future.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Opus Talent Solutions (London, England).

    Interview

    First sent CV, had phone interview and then invited to Assessment Centre.

    Phone interview questions:

    What do you know about Opus, why recruitment? what do recruitment consultants do?

    Assessment centre (whole day 9:30am- 5pm) :

    There were 6 other people and we were watched by 2 directors and an internal recruiter.

    Stage 1.) 2 directors gave us overview of company. Thought it was quite useless as I had done a lot of research before.

    Stage 2.) Then we were given random questions to answer (e.g. what is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you?). I think this was to see if you had a fun personality. The answers to some people's questions showed questionable character but the directors seemed to LOVE IT!

    Stage 3.) Next we had to complete a 90 second sales pitch about something we were passionate about (we had to prepare this before the assessment centre). We could do this sitting or standing up, only one person stood up.

    Stage 4.) Then we were split into 2 groups and asked to prepare a Dragons Den's pitch (i.e. come up with a business idea, pitch it and answer any questions asked).

    Stage 5.) We then had to role play various sales scenarios with the directors.

    Stage 6.) Then after lunch (which was 12:55 - 1:55) we had our face-to-face interviews. This was the WORST part. I wasn't asked any proper question (e.g. give me an example of when you ...). Instead I was asked what I did in my spare time. The interview was an insult to my intelligence. WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH THE JOB. I had done a lot of preparation for NOTHING.

    Overall, I got the impression throughout that they don't really care about your ability to do the job or your potential. They are only interested in whether they will like you or be your friend to go to the pub with after work and share juvenile anecdotes about getting drunk and doing STUPID things. My talents would be wasted there!!

    **If you are serious about your recruitment career DON'T APPLY. A complete waste of time **
