Randstad Education Interview Essay

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Randstad (Telephone, TX).

Interview

To start off, I went to a company website and applied for a job I was interested in. I got an email from a man (who I later found out was a Randstad recruiter - Pratt & Whitney outsourced their HR dept??) The recruiter didn't want to tell me about the job I applied for or interview me for it, he only wanted to try to get me to work for randstad. He treated me rudely, I had to keep repeating myself because he didn't listen to what I what I was telling him. He also had someone else on the other line that he didn't introduce. The people who work for randstad are unprofessional and sneaky. I should have hung up on him.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Randstad (Melbourne (Australia)) in July 2017.

Interview

No one actually rang me, instead all communication was through text messages and emails.
I was shortlisted to stage 1 to complete a series of questions through email and then a few days later I reached stage 2 and I had to complete a "neuroscience" game. I was advised that there was no wrong or right answer, and that it was only to see how I am work-wise. As soon as I completed the online game, I receive an email no more than a minute later, saying that they no longer wished to proceed with me as I did not have the high score that they wanted. I don't know what the "neuroscience" game has to do with Recruitment and Sales - I'd much rather prefer to have spoken to someone in person or over the phone and not through a series of automated texts and emails. I also thought it wasn't fair to judge my competency through an online game. The whole process felt very cold and when I sent emails at the start I never got a reply.

Interview Questions

  • 1: What draws you to the sales environment?
    2: What are the differences between a Recruiter and HR roles?
    3: Are you committed to more than one job at the moment?   Answer Question
