    Media Sales Executive Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at REED (London, England).

    Interview

    I literally can’t fault the recruitment experience I had with Reed.co.uk, from application to receiving an offer took about 1 week. Olivia (the recruiter) was there for me, from beginning until the end and made me feel so calm and so at home. Olivia also gave me feedback and helped and reassured me with any questions I had, she’s a diamond. The actual interview was quite easy too, for me
    personally. There was also a telephone role play, which I definitely would suggest prepping for as it really helps. I then got a call that day to say I’d got the job.
