    Recruiter Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BPS World (Maidenhead, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I met Rich for a coffee initially to gain an understanding of what BPS were looking for. The work life balance was the key selling point from that conversation. I submitted my CV and completed the online assessment. Had a first stage interview with Kelly and Andy which was challenging but very enjoyable. A little bit of delay between my first and second interview but I understood the reasons why. I completed a final stage interview with Simon and accepted the offer the same evening.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of questions around commitment and job hopping previously   1 Answer
