    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo (Japan)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I wanted to work in Japan, so I emailed my CV to the talent manager of Japan. Got an email back a week later saying she wanted to do a Skype Call. She was very friendly and interview went pretty well. Told me though that because they already hired a lot of foreigners the previous year and my Japanese capability wasn't as high as needed that it might be difficult for me to get another interview. Despite that, she sent my resume/interview notes up to the directors. The next day she told me that they wouldn't interview me because of lack of sales experience and lower level Japanese, but she was very nice and told me I could keep in touch.

    Interview

    Long and but within 2 weeks. I probably went through 5 interviews met 10 + people. I first met with recruiter she coached me a little but was worthless. She seemed a little stuck up and annoyed me some what she tried to pull that she was more Japanese than myself even though I spoke much better than her. Met with several members from a variety of teams to figure out who most likely felt my personality was a fit for me.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Seoul (South Korea)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    - Team manager contacted me via Linkedin sharing information of current open position, invited to an interview
    - Rather than Q&A style, it was more conversational. The manager described the major tasks and what would be anticipated from the associate consultant. Questions he asked were mostly behavioural questions. The manager was looking more into personal fit from his candidates.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters in February 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through company website, received a call from the HR department a few fays later. Basic questions on why recruiting, why Robert Walters etc...

    Was scheduled a face-to-face interview with 2 managers on different sectors, again basic behavioral questions nothing difficult. Managers were extremely friendly and made me comfortable during the interview process.

    Recieved a follow-up e-mail with a feedback, was scheduled another interview with an associate director for a 3rd round, nothing diffficult just asking why Robert Walters instead of competitors, what is your goal within next 10 years etc...

    Was scheduled another interview with 4 directors at a corporate headquarter, very long but fun at the same time. They make you feel comfortable and treat you with respect.

    Received a call from HR the next day and was scheduled a final interview with an associate director. This time it wad VERY tough, with 3 role plays (cold calling a candidate and scheduling an interview, pursuading a new client to interview candidates, and name collecting by cold calling real companies).

    Received an offer right after the final role play.

    Negotiation

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo (Japan)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    It was a shotgun interview with 6 people (which is considered a smaller interview) with everyone in the team and division. It was a great chance to meet people you will be working with as well as a chance to promote yourself to the interviewers.

    The interview is very much dependent on how you are able to think on your feet, confidence in speaking and making sure you match the culture of the firm. They are known to not even really go off of your CV.

    Interview Questions

    • Different depending on the consultant however several curve balls such as logical questions.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo (Japan)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    You'll be asked to speak with no fewer than 6 managers and no more than 10 (from what I've been told, I had just 6). Assuming all goes well, they'll ask you which manager you felt you connected with best out of a selected list, and then that will likely be the team to which you're assigned.
