    I have been working at Hays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work with fantastic people which makes a big difference and you are rewarded for hard work and personal achievement, no matter how big or small. The incentives are frequent and generous. The training is extensive and you always feel like you are being supported. Also, the career progression is second to none. If you want to build a career then you are guided and supported through this process.

    Cons

    It can get a little stressful some days, but this is true of most jobs.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hays.

    Interview

    4 stages after the initial application; phone interview, open day, assessment centre, and interview. This seems like a lot but it gives you a chance to get to know the job role and the company so you can make an informed decision as to whether you would like to work there.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    no
