Does there seem to be diversity at Hays?

...day behaviour, but I'd like to emphasise that it really depends on a couple of individuals within the company and their poor teamwork abilities at the time rather than the company culture itself as upper management always encouraged cooperation and diversity....Read More

  1. Associate Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hays (Brisbane)

    Interview

    Very structured interview process. A lot of questions about what you know or have researched about company. A small assessment at end which includes role playing. However, Not many situational questions to allow interviewee to highlight their experience and interpersonal skills. Interviewer I had was smiley and lovely, but also little condescending and passive aggressive. She seemed annoyed that I had not done sufficient research about company, yet my answers were based all the information provided on website and documentation provided. Felt more like I was being quizzed. May have been miscommunication. At no point in interview was I walked through throughly about how company differs from others, how they achieve their objectives, company culture, and what they offer employees. Majority of the interview felt like my answers where being nitpicked. Felt rushed and was received unsolicited and bizzare feedback.
