    I have been working at Premier Group Recruitment full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    good perks like a PT and some nights out

    Cons

    Working for Premier is a very wolf of wall street culture, you will get a very low salary and will work your socks off for you to not be appreciated unless you are billing thousands every month, the effect the down talk and micromanagement will have for your mental health isn't worth it.

    the work environment is very unprofessional, managers making jokes about girls on their knees. seniors shouting and being horrid on an hourly basis. you cant have a 2 min break without being told to pick up the phone and you haven't billed in over a month blah blah blah.

    The lad culture as said bellow is awful, girls are cliques as and the boys will degrade every woman that walks past on the way to the toilet.

    Seniors hardly did any work but will openly mock everyone, and when you start you are labelled a rookie and made to slog for the seniors and do all there work.

    be prepared to be in the office till 9-10 most evenings because if you don't have CVS flying out your ears they will find a way to fire you, you can't make any mistakes here without being publicly humiliated in front of the whole office.

    High Drug Culture amongst Management

    oh and be prepared to become mentally unstable :)

    Advice to Management

    sort the environment, seniors and management out and you might have something good going for you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Premier Group Recruitment (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Very lengthy interview processes - 5 steps.
    You first have a phone call talking about your experience, once qualified you will have a FaceTime or video chat with the internal recruiter. The first face to face interview is arranged which lasts around 2 hours where you get to meet the team. If you pass this you aren’t then invited back in for a second time to talk to the team and do an online assessment (this lasts around 2/3 hours)
    You then will have a phone will the MD Who ultimately makes the final decision.
    Really unprofessional as they make you think you have the job, even got invited out on their team night out! Wouldn’t recommend, complete waste of my time
