    I worked at Spencer Ogden full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced environment - really good experience for those who want to work in buzzy office where decisions are made quickly.

    Promotion - I was promoted in my first year at SO (this included a decent salary increase too). Although my role didn't change a huge amount, it gave me the boost I was needing and by the time I left I was being given the opportunity to manage 2 other new grads.

    You can (if you put the groundwork in) earn a lot of money. Other good incentives including going to the Ibiza office and lunch club are cool and happen regularly.

    Training and 1-1 coaching is always available to those who want it, and I had some good training on leadership, negotiation etc, which I found useful.

    Cons

    Recruitment is an acquired taste, and it wasn't suited to me. If you're confident and good with people, then it can be an easy way to make some good money.

    Too much emphasis on just being on the phone. I thought I would have the opportunity to go to client meetings but this never happened!!

    Recruitment Consultant Interview Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Spencer Ogden.

    Interview Details

    If you are desperate for a job, apply. If you are not, don't waste your time.

    1. Phone Interview (Singapore), she was a recent graduate and very immature and unprofessional. Talks over you and doesn't listen but passed the interview.

    2. Came in for an Assessment Day however this was very long drawn out process 4-5 hours long. Complete waste of time and childish games. One-On-One just before you leave for the day, one question asked "How do you think you went?" then few mins of negative feedback of yourself (3-5mins).

    3. Interview with a senior manager for 25 mins, he is well experienced and seemed like a nice guy then the rest of the interview for another 10mins with the Director (very young), This is the only time I thought it wasn't a waste of time.
