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

    Pros

    RW is a global firm. With such a large presence internationally, we have the benefits of leveraging best practices from around the globe and apply them to our local businesses.
    The team in Toronto is professional and hard working, they strive for excellent customer service and building and maintaining strong relationships. The management is supportive of peoples goals (personally & professionally) working together to help consultants achieve success. Everyone works towards a common initiative which helps drive strong business values and outcomes.
    As a newer business, there is plenty of opportunity for growth, both as a professional and as an organisation, this is an exciting aspect for those really looking to make an impact.

    Cons

    - Older systems. As a larger company, it takes a bit longer to make changes to systems or certain processes. This is in the process of being changed - but will take some time.
    Brand Awareness - as a new provider in the recruitment space, we are working on establishing a name brand. This will take time and is part of the process. The nice thing, is that it is being done the right way.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to provide opportunities for entrepreneurial spirit and thought to help drive business process & improvement.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Paris (France)).

    Interview

    5 entretiens avec tout le management / 1 heure / Au siège
    Echange et partage d'expériences
    Les compétences ne sont pas abordées ainsi que le passé professionnel
    Beaucoup de mises en garde sur les process et la gestion commerciale
    Structure surement très verticalisée et cadrante
    Surement peu d'évolution
    Ne donne pas sa chance au profil atypique
    Salariés qui ne s'entendent pas entre eux, n'ont pas le même discours, ne sont que dans une culture commerciale forte et déconnectée
