    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Venquis (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had an interview with the CEO initially then the talent acquisition consultant. The company on the whole seem a credible employer and would recommend working for the company based on my interviews and viewing of the office. I don't have experience in their sector at the moment and my salary expectations were a little higher than on offer, not to say that their structure isn't healthy. I may reapply in future. They seem to have a good structure and team.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Venquis (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    First stage face to face set up by a rec2rec. The first part of the interview gave infromation about the company, and A LOT of detail of the lengthy interview process which was helpful. Very very old school feel, felt like the interviewer was trying to catch me out/keep me on my toes, but that could have just been their interview style. As you can see below, some of the questions the first interviewer asked were quite strange and I felt a bit uncomfortable. The second interviewer was a lot softer. I was invited back for a second stage but didn't attend.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Venquis (London, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Negative - right from the start. I was contacted by the internal recruiter who initiated a first stage interview for the very same day. Great, I thought! How efficient. This, I was very wrong about. I came in to see her and spent about 40 minutes speaking about fairly irrelevant things. Their office was also quite messy / dirty. I didn't meet any of the actual Hiring Managers or Consultants which was irritating as it was clear to see she knew nothing about specific sectors and even little about recruitment as a whole. It was actually a very positive interview, I knew I had soared through it and built rapport (I just didn't like their strategy and questioned their 4/5 stage process inc an online test). A bit much for a recruitment firm?

    Nevertheless, I waited patiently for a call back. Imagine my shock and dismay when this didn't arrive. One, two or even a week later. Bearing in mind, I didn't apply for a role and I was approached about it. Anyway, the call came ten days later and in that time they had apparently interviewed another candidates with more experience. What confused me was the fact I had called twice in the ten days enquiring about feedback and was fobbed off each time then of course, a more experienced candidate.

    I wouldn't interview here. The process is a mess.

    Interview Questions

    • What do your friends do? Really, you have to ask yourself how this is relevant to the role at hand because if you asked that question, I'm sure they'd ask the same.
      The internal recruiter swore about three times but inbetween that, asked very basic questions. Tell me about your last role, describe yourself, why recruitment, etc.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Venquis (London, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Inspiring and Challenging. Gained a great insight into the culture of the company, the growth plans and a real understanding of the role. I felt they gave me a true insight into recruitment and not just a sales pitch. The interview was challenging, lots of questions that require thinking. Enjoyed it, shows they care who they hire.

    Initial aptitude test to be completed before face to face interview. Met with two team heads for about half an hour each.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Venquis (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    1st phone call. Onlnine test for dummies! 2nd phone call. 1st meeting face to face, 2nd meeting face to face. Took 3 weeks, whilst other companies were more efficient and took 4 days! they asked some personal questions about family members and friends which I thought was a little out of place.
