    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tokyo (Japan)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo (Japan)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Really great. You first have a short interview with all of the division heads. Then, the process proceeds as a matching system, so you continue your interviews with the divisions you like and the divisions that chose you as well. It was great in being exposed to the whole business and choosing your interest team as the process continued.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ōsaka, Osaka (Japan)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Ōsaka, Osaka (Japan)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through their site as a recruitment consultant. I was contacted by a talent acquisition specialist who was very enthusiastic throughout the call. The interview was with three managers. They were very nice throughout the interview and accommodating to my questions. Unfortunately, I did not get an offer, but the experience helped me reflect on my approach to interviews.

    What you need to bring with you to the interview:
    -A strong set of examples as to how you fit the job of a recruiter (recruiting is a difficult job, has a high turnover rate, late hours, and is full of rejections) be able to talk about life examples where you have handled rejection and displayed persuasion, persistence, tenacity in difficult situations.

    The majority of the questions (if you are just beginning your career) are based on what is your understanding of recruiting, how you fit, and what experiences you have to prove that. You are likely best off not mentioning the "humanistic" side of recruitment and show you are fit for the sales side of it.
    There were no questions about being money-driven as other reviewers had mentioned, but you are best off showing through example that you are motivated by numbers.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you give an example of a situation or experience where you had to persuade someone something, and how did you do it? What do you think recruiting is? Have you faced rejection and how did you recover? What is your greatest achievement? How do you handle the mistakes you've made? How do you manage your time? Give examples. What are some characteristics recruiters need to have?   Answer Question

    UI/UX Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tokyo (Japan)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Robert Walters (Tokyo (Japan)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    The recruiter was kinda late and with dirty hairs. She acted nice, but seemed with any interest. After that I never had any response from her. Oddly enough she contacted me in the first place.
    Really disappointing from a top agency. Guess sometimes is really smoke in the eye and nothing much else.

    Interview Questions

    • She asked me about my position, but she did not know much about it in the first place.   Answer Question

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed by a Skype interview with Internal recruitment team. Process was quick and efficient with all questions being answered. Unfortunately not progressed due to lack of sales experience, a bit disappointing as I queried this during phone screen and Skype call and was informed that this shouldn't be an issue as training is offered.
