    Trainee Graduate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Albans, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Understanding Recruitment (Saint Albans, England) in October 2017.


    The interview process was rigorous but ultimately enjoyable. I was able to meet those from different levels of management including one of the directors. This gave me sufficient opportunity to ask as many questions as possible and therefore make sure the company was the right choice for me.
