Application

I interviewed at Robert Walters

Interview

I ended up being interviewed over 3 weeks, 4 different times. I met with the team I would be working with and 2 directors. I was very concerned that Robert Walters' entire leadership team was made up of men and I expressed this concern to the one woman in the office who interviewed me. I was assured there are leadership opportunities but I wasn't seeing them in the office I was in. While the overall process, for the most part, was normal and I felt I had a lot of great conversations with the team, I was quite taken aback when I ultimately decided to declined their offer. After I delivered the news that I would be accepting an offer with a different company I was told, "you would not have been successful in this role and you won't be making as much money with that company than you would here." I though that was quite presumptuous to say, especially after they had already offered me the position. Why offer a person a position if you don't think they will be successful in the role? This, in tandem with the lack of diversity I witnessed in the office, makes me happy I ended up where I did.

Interview Questions

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters

Interview

Ich wurde online von einer Recruiterin des Unternehmens angeschrieben und auf die Stelle aufmerksam gemacht. Danach hatte ich ein einfaches, ca. halbstündiges Telefoninterview mit ihr und wenig später erfolgte die Einladung zum persönlichen Interview. Das persönliche Interview war ausschliesslich auf Englisch und man duzte sich. Es herrschte eine sympathische, unverkrampfte Atmosphäre. Zuerst stellten sich die beiden Interviewpartner vor, dann stellte man mir einige Fragen zum Recruiting und daraufhin konnte ich meine eigenen Fragen stellen. Nach einem kurzen Zwischenfeedback stellte man mir nochmals ein, zwei Fragen. Man sagte mir, dass ich in den nächsten Tagen eine Rückmeldung zu unserem Gespräch abgeben sollte. Insgesamt hatte ich bis dahin einen sehr guten Eindruck vom Unternehmen und den Interviewpartnern. Total unprofessionell war leider die Folgezeit: Nachdem ich sofort mein positives Feedback abgegeben hatte, hörte ich zwei Wochen lang nichts von RW, obwohl ich immer wieder telefonisch nachfragte. Angeblich konnte man sich noch nicht entscheiden, weil eine der verantwortlichen Personen in den Ferien war. Dann erhielt ich eine schriftliche Absage per Mail vom HR in Deutschland. Als ich eine persönliche Rückmeldung dazu wollte, wusste die betroffene Person in der CH nichts von der Absage (!). Ich wartete zwei weitere Wochen auf ein Feedback. Dann wollte man mich plötzlich zum zweiten Interview einladen und verschwieg die lange Wartezeit von vier Wochen und die Absage gänzlich (!). Ich entschied mich daraufhin, meine Bewerbung zurückzuziehen.

I had to share my experience. This is an extremely unprofessional firm. They will waste your time and not provide definite answers as to start dates/job openings. Do yourself a favor and avoid them at all cost!!!

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo) in Jan 2018

Interview

I was ghosted after an interview for a recruiter position. Since then it seems all of my applications for any positon RW lists have been blocked. As for the interview itself, the process wasn't so bad. I admit I may not have been the best fit for a recruiting position which I don't mind. However, there was no follow-up, and since this interview a year and a half ago, I have not gotten any response from RW about other positions with client companies they have listed on various job sites.
