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

    Pros

    I think the environment at Understanding makes it, as a place to work, extremely special. The employees at Understanding are very engaged and dedicated and I think this stems from the support and enthusiasm that the directors and senior management display.

    Cons

    Speaking from my own experience, I find it hard to comment on this, perhaps working in the shopping center...

    Advice to Management

    Continue showing the enthusiasm and support that you currently do.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Understanding Recruitment (Saint Albans, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Quick process and well organised. Had a telephone interview two days after getting application.
    First stage within a couple of days and second stage was the week after. Would have moved even quicker if I could book the days off.
    Excellent communication the whole way through, very varied questions but nothing designed to catch you out.
