    I worked at Robert Walters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good on the job training, positive and team focused environment, fantastically well resourced company giving you the best opportunity for success. Great incentives for high achievers.

    Cons

    Consistently under pressure to meet very high KPIs and targets, results in long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Move away from the outdated boys club environment. Support and promote more women to senior positions.

    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!
