    Interview process

    I was invited to come in for an interview following an initial phone screening process. The interview was actually very relaxed. As soon as I walked in the man interviewing me was very pleasant and friendly. I was asked a series of questions. These included what my strengths and weaknesses were. He also asked why I wanted to work in recruitment. He further asked where I could see myself in 5 years informing me that the company liked for candidates to have serious goals (such as owning a property). He also asked me situational questions such as examples where I had to be competitive or overcome difficulties. I had to show what sort of skills I had that would be best suited to the role (one of the things I said was that I am a great listener which is good for building relationships). Overall, I felt very confident and relaxed.

    Most difficult question

    "What is your main strength and weakness?" This was a difficult question because you have to figure out a weakness without making yourself seem like any less of an ideal candidate.

    Interview tips

    This company is very interested in a good level of experience. Although I had about a years worth of experience in retail this was cited as the main reason for not being offered the role. I was told that other candidates displayed that they were able to progress onto management roles. Therefore I would advise having a good level of experience before considering applying.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    when I arrived at the office I was met by a friendly receptionist who directed me to sit in the waiting area. After about 10 minutes my interviewer came to meet me. It was a one on one interview so it was just us two. The interview took place in a small room. The interview lasted about 20 minutes conisting of various questions, the most notable of which are mentioned above. It was generally a good experience.
