    I have been working at Robert Walters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really progressive culture, with a management team committed to finding the best ways for you to progress in the way that you want.
    I joined the business as a Consultant with 2 years experience & have been given the opportunity to grow & establish my own team in a new market - which you just wouldn't get in a lot of recruitment businesses.
    Fantastic brand that's instantly recognisable
    An adult recruitment environment that isn't all about metrics & KPI's, but actually about output & billings
    A great marketing budget that gives you every tool to find common ground with clients & candidates & grow meaningful professional relationships
    Great overall salary package with lots of flexible benefits

    Cons

    Some people in the past have struggled with the lack of structure around Business Development & the amount of freedom given to consultants to run their own desks. To be successful you need to be really committed to success & disciplined to follow up leads & opportunities on your own steam.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Manchester, England) in January 2016.

    Interview

    1st stage imterview with internal recruiter
    2nd stage interview with two line managers from same department handling term or perm
    3rd stage interview with two associate directors
    4th stage interview was a quick meeting with the managing director

    Employees at RW are very professional but approachable! They make the interview process more like a general chat than an interrogation. Definitely a good approach!
