    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hays (Watford, East of England, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a phone call about 2 weeks later. Questions such as Why Hays? Why recruitment? Why do you think you'd be a good fit for a recruitment role?I was then invited to a 1:1 interview. This was relatively informal. We went through my CV, asked me a few general questions about myself and we then did some situational questions and a role play. I was informed I would receive a phone call at the end of the day. It has been over a week so I don't have high hopes but was still a good experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hays.

    Interview

    4 stages after the initial application; phone interview, open day, assessment centre, and interview. This seems like a lot but it gives you a chance to get to know the job role and the company so you can make an informed decision as to whether you would like to work there.

    Placement Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hays (Manchester, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was invited to a relaxed 3hr taster day along with about 20 others to gain more of an insight into the company and what the placement year would consist of. Firstly we were given a few presentations, in which everyone made a few notes on what was being said. Then we were split into groups in which we had to review an application, then ask questions to the directors about what was missing from the application. Make sure you ask a question at this point to get yourself noticed. Finally we were then split off into pairs, in which we had to interview each other to find out information so we could secure each other an interview when presenting to the managing directors. However, only one of us in the par could present, so again make sure this is you as that's what the assessors are looking for - someone who will put themselves forward. When presenting the aim is to secure your partner an interview, so ensure that you ask questions to the managing director like "so when is a suitable time for you to interview..." rather than "can they have an interview" - again this is what the assessors are looking for. I feel as though I could have got through this stage if I asked a question or presented - it's all about being noticed.
