    Client Service Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TMP Worldwide UK (Edinburgh, Scotland) in February 2014.

    Interview

    Applied directly, contacted within 1 week for initial interview. Initial interview was meant to be a face to face but I wasn't able to get the time off so there was a telephone interview. They were very accommodating with this which was great. Phone interview was a basic competency interview. Second interview was an attention to detail test which consisted of 3 job adverts which had to be checked for spelling, grammar, consistency etc. and meeting the team.
    Got a call 10 minutes after the interview offering me the position.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TMP Worldwide UK in May 2010.

    Interview

    The company e-mailed me after finding my resume online. I called them and a face-to-face interview was set up. After the face-to-face meeting, which involved interviewing with three individuals, there were 2 phone interviews in the weeks to follow. The entire interview process took about 2 weeks since there were several managers involved.

    Negotiation

    I asked for the higher end of the salary scale for this position and they offered it. It was very cut and dry.

    Managing Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at TMP Worldwide UK (Manchester, England) in March 2016.

    Interview

    2 stage. Very fluid. Consultative chat over full blown interview.
    Met the head of SPS and my Direct
    Manager at both. Very much enjoyed.
    We discussed projects and how I'd be connected, my background to date and reasons for moving. It was casual, yet informative. I got all of the information I needed on the company and the role whilst able to assess my soon to be management team to see weather I could work for them. I'm glad I did. Invaluable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at TMP Worldwide UK (Bristol, England) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very quick process involving SJT, face to face interview lasting 20 minutes. Got the feeling they were desperate for people as it was much too quick a process.

    Competency based interview, similar to the ones we conduct for telephone interviews.

    Resource Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TMP Worldwide UK (Bristol, England) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Maths and English test and a video interview before being invited to assessment evening with a group exercise, role play, and interview. The tests are quite hard. The Maths test is redundant once you're in the role. Make sure you research the company values and be involved in the group exercise an you will be fine
