    I have been working at Hays full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I feel incredibly lucky to be working under a team of leaders that want to see me grow and develop within the company. Jim Fearon makes a point of being involved in the development of every employee, no matter their title. I have never experienced working for a company where the VP's and the President, Rowen O'Grady, have been so involved. Yes, there are hard days and slow days, but if you ask for help - you will receive it. If you show any sort of initiative, you will be responded to with opportunity.

    Cons

    Nothing will be handed to you, you have to work for it. But once you start seeing results, you feel incredibly accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on all the new goals and future plans for the teams and the company as a whole. They are working! I feel engaged and motivated most of the time at work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Hays (Paris (France)) in January-2018.

    Interview

    Le contact a été assez bien. Mais en ce qui concerne la suite, aucun retour sur mon mail et cv envoyé, alors que nous devions se rappeler. Dommage car ils semblent avoir de bonnes propositions de poste.
