    I have been working at PageGroup full-time

    Pros

    The culture is meritocratic. Bonus numbers and career trajectory is decided in a fairly objective manner. MP does not hire people laterally so you can be rest assured you'll be working with a boss who has walked the talk.

    It's fun. (Friday drinks and an open door policy. Great access to senior leaders. Open floor culture. There's always high energy on the floor from a set of talented people from various backgrounds)

    It has some of the best incentives in the industry for top performers (Quarterly bonuses, Platinum Club, Red Letter, Millionaire's)

    Overall it's a fun place to be in if you enjoy consultative sales. It's a good learning experience specially in terms of team management as responsibility is entrusted to you at an early age. It's good for any sales person who is entrepreneurial and likes to lead teams. You are the CEO of your own desk!

    Cons

    Recruitment is an industry with some
    unique challenges. You're selling something that's intangible and not in your control. You must do diligence to understand if it is for you.
    Work hours can be long. You're never really off the hook.

    Advice to Management

    We should have better technology and tools!
    More flexibility should be provided to employees. We should have a strong internal TA team.

    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mumbai
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PageGroup (Mumbai) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for the post based on a Facebook ad. I saw the ad just oen day prior to the deadline and interview day. I contacted the mentioned responsible person and assured that I would be present for the interview.
    The next day I reached their office and there were 8 other applicants. We were given a detailed introduction of Michael Page initially by one of their managers.
    Post this, we started with a Group Discussion. The topic startled us all. The MD and another Senior Manager were the judges. We were asked to come to a common conclusion as a group and inform the judges who, from the 9 of us, should be selected. The decision and discussion was supposed to be based on pure logic.
    We were given 2 mins of time prior to starting to ask any questions. This was ( as informed to us later ) an opportunity for us to ask the judges exactly the kind of people they wanted.

    The GD did go quite randomly of course but interesting nonetheless. Afte the GD, 4 of us were selected for final interview round with the same judges. I had a decent time at the interview. They did not grill me but rather made me tweak my answers and approach to what a consultant's should be. The interview was less of a test and more of a training itself. The MD did help me be better than what I was.
