I have been working at Graduate Fasttrack full-time (More than 3 years)
New benefits introduced including Perkbox, Flexi-time and increased holiday days
Lots of new responsibilities
Since merger, this company has been much more positive and the way we work has changed for the better.
Grad Recruitment will always have it's tough points, not really a con but you've got to be a certain type of person to be able to deal with these tough times.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing, employees are enjoying themselves much more now. Just don't let any of the good stuff slip!
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Graduate Fasttrack (London, England) in August 2016.
Everyone brought into a room and asked to introduce themselves. Tasks included solving a problem as a group and selling a candidate. The problem-solving task probably varies in difficulty according to your group, I was quite fortunate as most of mine shared similar-ish opinions. Selling your partner was quite easy too, you just need to ham it up and give the interviewers a reason to remember you.
There was then a break and the group split in two, with the ones asked to leave the room then being told they hadn't made the next stage. The next stage was an interview with one of their consultants and a senior manager, which I found a bit more difficult - I suppose the senior manager's demeanour unsettled me a bit. They then left for about ten minutes and the senior manager came back and told me I hadn't been successful and provided feedback. This part wasn't particularly easy listening but I actually found the feedback quite valuable as it was pretty much all constructive. Then he escorted me out and said he'd "be in touch", I guess to put the other candidates still waiting at ease (everyone did this).
