    I have been working at The Oyster Partnership full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As soon as I set foot in the building for my first interview I could tell that this would be a great place to work and after being offered the role I have never looked back! All of the consultants and managers are super supportive and the opportunities are endless. If you are looking to start a career in recruitment then Oyster is the place to be.

    Cons

    The working hours can be very long in recruitment. However the more time you put in the more your going succeed. Oyster have been extremely supportive to staff and since COVID have shown great flexibility to allow home working, and also a safe working environment for those who live in London or have a preference to be in the office.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Oyster Partnership.

    Interview

    The interview process was extremely drawn out. - The interview process consisted of two meetings with a director and a senior member of staff. On arrival to my first interview, I was met with a warm welcoming, despite the office being quite run down, I looked past that. The interviewers were friendly and I cannot fault them. They made me feel at ease. However, I was thrown off by a couple of questions, but overlooked it and remained positive. I then met with team leaders after my first initial interview and was asked more questions about myself which I found quite odd, considering that I had just finished a 50 minute interview with another set of people. I also met the MD briefly, who was really friendly and welcoming - later to find out that this persona is a facade! I was invited back for a second interview and was interviewed by one of the same people that had previously interviewed me. They had then asked me questions, leaving the other interviewer sat there in silence. I didn't like this aspect as I felt like I was repeating myself. After this interview had finished. I then met with MORE people. Another person who had asked me questions before and the MD. The MD was extremely rude and belittling. It felt like an interrogation as he and the other interviewer were just firing questions at me that I had already been asked. I've never met someone that is so senior act this rude. I was left to feel extremely uncomfortable and was relived when I didn't get an offer.
