    Pros

    Having worked in the company two and a half years I can categorically say it's been one of the best decisions of my life. Was it tough at the beginning? Yes. A sales job will always be tough at the start as you learn, and build up a market, however at every step of the way there has been great training and support from Managers and Team Leaders all across the business. In add, the social side is very good and you make some great friends here.

    As well as being promoted multiple times, I've even been offered to relocate internationally by the business, something I wouldn't of believed at the start was actually possible. I've also managed to live extremely comfortably earning a salary well above the average pay.

    At the start I would be lying if I said I wasn't a little skeptical of the promise of relocation, super fast career growth, incentives and a lot of monetary success, but looking back now the company have delivered on everything they promised.

    Cons

    Long hours are required to build up your market
    You can expect highs and lows as is the nature of Recruitment

    Advice to Management

    Offer more people the chance to go to Technology conferences

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Nigel Frank International (Sydney) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Stage 1: Phone interview with someone from the UK Head Office. Creative phone screening process which adds to the enthusiasm of the job prospect.
    Stage 2: Interview with Operations Manager and 2 Team Leaders in Melbourne.
    (Very disappointing experience. It becomes apparent once you enter their office that its just a glorified Telemarketing office). Staff were lifeless, managers were unorganised and the whole time was spent them trying to make you join their hollow shell of a company.
    Perfect destination for someone wishing to be telemarketer selling IT products all day, all week, all year.
