Advice to Management
Hours too long - this is being looked at
I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PageGroup (Melbourne) in April 2017.
I had a lengthy phone interview (40 mins) with a wonderful girl, who then passed on my details to the head of the retail. She called me to come in for an interview (45 mins) and then called me to come back in to do a role play. All of the above went really, really well. I felt very confident. But then I did the role play. I was given 3 resumes, told they were the best I had found out of 100 I'd seen and I needed to sell them to the client. I was given 10 mins to review them, and each one had something that would make them unsuitable for the position. My instinct was to tell the "client" (my interviewees) that I wouldn't want any of them to work for them and why, but I had to make things up. I'm a terrible liar and not great at playing make believe. Also because I was uncomfortable, my demeanour was coming across very professional, but not easy going. I didn't smile etc because my mind was running a million miles a minute. I have no recruitment experience, so it was definitely an eye opener. They called me back a week later to tell me I didn't get the job, which I had already guessed. But they'd be interested in me in a years time once I have some experience. I have since accepted a recruitment position that was very different to this experience. This experience was certainly not a bad one, but made me see that I am not cut out quite yet for the big players.
