    I have been working at Heat Recruitment full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture - everyone gets on from the MD to Trainees
    Very sociable group but no one is ostracised for doing their own thing
    Management do not put unreasonable pressure on you
    Good performance is recognised both financially and in terms of praise
    There is a fair working environment and none of the horror stories you hear in recruitment with regard to colleagues backstabbing others
    Management are always willing to take the time to listen to you and support you through anything
    Free onsite gym which is ever improving

    Cons

    Communication from Senior Management to the rest of the team is sometimes lacking
    The hours are very long and does affect work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    When rolling out new initiatives it would be great to really explain to the company the benefits of doing these as often new things are rolled out and quickly forgotten by the team meaning by in is less going forwards with new ones.

    Trainee Recruitment COnsultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Heat Recruitment (Bristol, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone screening followed by a 1 hour interview. The interview was fine, a few irritating questions that were exactly the same as the last but worded differently. At the end of the interview we discussed outside of work positions and hobbies, and the interviewer was deeply unimpressed with my hobbies and volunteering, it was made very clear that I should expect to work very late in the evenings and any social responsibility would not work with them. The work hard play hard culture of the company was emphasised too much, made it seem chavvy and infantile. I asked questions about the specifics of the job which were interpreted as a lack of understanding of the job. The whole thing felt quite rushed, but I was most put off by the party culture the interviewer went on and on about. I didn’t feel this was appropriate for a first interview and isn’t the sort of thing I’m looking for in a job.
