    Pros

    Recruitment is an industry that gives back to those who put in. As the saying goes 'Work Hard - Play Hard'. A vibrant, busy environment that welcomes those people with a zest for life and that natural Art of People-ism, the interest in others. Oh and let's not forget we have a lot of fun along the way.

    Cons

    for many years recruitment has been seen as an industry that you drop into whilst working out what you are going to do - that nowadays cannot be further from the truth. Recruitment is an industry where you can build a career and at Heat Recruitment we demonstrate this with our superior Heat Training Academy that teaches, trains and coaches people through their entire career.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Heat Recruitment (Bristol, England).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly straightforward. There was an initial telephone screening which lasted for a few minutes until I was asked to come in for a face-to-face interview.

    Firstly I met with one of the Sales Managers for a run through of my CV and to discuss ambitions and goals for the future.

    Usually there would be a second stage on another day but as the other Sales Manager was free at the time I also had a brief chat with him there and then. Again I was asked about reasons for leaving previous jobs, goals for the future, why am I interested in recruitment, what motivates me, etc.

    After this, I was shown the office and taken to another meeting room to complete a task. I was asked to create a script for a sales pitch to try and bring on new business for the company.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your biggest failure?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate as I didn't have any direct experience for the role. I took the salary that was on offer but after being with the company for just a few months my salary had already increased to above the top indicator on the job advert.
