    Trainee Graduate Recruitment Consultant Interview

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


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Understanding Recruitment (Saint Albans, England) in October 2017.


    The interview process was rigorous but equally informative. The first stage was an informal phone chat to better understand my motivations. The second stage was a face-to-face interview which gave me the opportunity to meet the some of the managers in the company and gauge the company culture first-hand. Lastly, I presented on my greatest passion and how it relates to a role in Recruitment.
