    Pros

    The pros of this company are without a doubt the positive corporate culture, unlimited earning potential and career progression. There is a wealth of recruitment expertise and management/colleague support in this organization, from the President and VP to Business and People Managers. It isn’t common to have such seasoned experts who day in and out are there to support your continued success and growth. This is a large contributor to the success of the consultants and the business as a whole.

    Cons

    The recruitment industry in general is not for everyone. All the tools, training, and support are provided at Hays for you. The rest is up to your own positivity, commitment and work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Consultant en recrutement Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paris (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hays (Paris (France)) in February-2018.

    Interview

    1 entretien téléphonique et 2 entretiens physiques.
    Entretien relativement informel.
    Les questions posées ne sont pas très pertinentes.
    Ne prennent pas le temps de se familiariser avec votre CV avant l'entretien ( le recruteur n'avait pas compris le type de diplôme et l'école dans laquelle je l'avais obtenu alors que c'était indiqué en première ligne sur mon CV).
    Recruteur de (très) bas niveau.
