    Pros

    The PG Dublin office is growing and there are lots of opportunities for you to take control of your own destiny. There is also lots of experience in the room and everyone shares similar goals. Anyone capable of managing their own time while getting results is given great autonomy and flexibility. The training is recognised as some of the best in the industry and you get lots of exposure to the wider business outside of Ireland. The organic culture means that you can progress based on revenue targets regardless of your age/hours worked etc. Depending on an individuals preference there are opportunities to manage people or become a senior individual revenue contributor and focus on your personal ambitions (bonuses, responsibility etc). As a multinational business, there are many examples of successful recruiters joining other PG offices around the world. At least a third of the current team have international recruitment experience.

    Cons

    Similar to other businesses within the industry, the team work long hours. However, the model is focused on results/output and there are plenty of employees who manage their time effectively to ensure a healthy balance of work and family time.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to ensure that the business continues to move with the times. Recruitment has an old school feel to it as an industry and PG management must ensure the company stays with the times! Overall, you must be capable of getting results but PG Dublin is a great place to work if you want autonomy, career progression and a social environment.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PageGroup (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Firstly I received a telephone call, was nothing more than a chat. Told them a bit about myself and got to know the company. All very casual.

    The next round I was scheduled in for a telephone interview. Lasted approximately 40 minutes and consisted of general and competency based questions.
