    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Hays full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    We have a fantastic team of 15 in Geelong and growing, with an office expansion set for late 2019. We have opened a brand new Ballarat office in Nov 18 with 3 people and are set to open Bendigo in Oct 19 with 2 people. Such a great culture, supportive, collaborative and high achieving.

    Cons

    I work five minutes from home and five minutes from the beach, no CONS from me!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hays (Sydney) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was lengthy but great! Definitely gave you a 'decent' insight into the world of recruitment. Feedback was given at the end of every round and received a lot of support from the internal recruiter.

    There are generally about 6 stages (you can google what specifically occurs):

    1. Phone Interview - Simple questions
    2. Face to Face Interview with an Internal Recruiter - Do your research! Demonstrate how well you fit in with their values.
    3. Assessment Centre - 1 speech, 1 CV screening activity, 2 role-plays
    4. Interview with Managers (office you're working at) - Fairly simple, repeat of stage 2.
    5. Interview with Regional Director (your manager's boss) - Fairly simple, repeat of stages 2 & 4.
    6. Job Offer/Rejection
