    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
