    I have been working at Search Consultancy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked for Search for 4 years and have found it a great company to work for. Search offered great training which I found useful having joined the company with no previous experience. They offer opportunities for progression which has seen me get 3 promotions within my time here. I highly recommend them as a company to work for, particularly the Liverpool office which has a great atmosphere.

    Cons

    When I first joined the company they were not offering some of the flexible working conditions offered by other companies, however over time Search has become more up to date with what people want and have made a good effort to help improve and make the company a better place to work and are always introducing new ideas to keep employees happy.

    Telephone Interviewer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester City Centre, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Search Consultancy (Manchester City Centre, England) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Initially had a telephone interview which went well however the face-to-face interview did not go as well. The interviewer seemed nice, offered me a drink which I declined (maybe I shouldn't have). Started by asking me to explain my CV. Also it seemed important that the candidate for the job was resilient as the job requires someone to do the same tasks day in day out.
