  • 2. GSR2R Award Winning Rec2Rec company http://www.gsr2r.com call 0203178 8118Interviews are something that recruiters talk about and come into contact withevery day, but that doesnt mean that an interview cant be just as nervewracking a situation for a recruitment professional as for anyone else whenthey are looking for a new role!Interviews, offer a company an opportunity to find out about a potential newemployee and assess whether they are going to be a good fit. The additionalbenefit is it also allows them to try and tempt the best talent to join. If acandidate is desirable, then the interviewer knows they may not be the onlyone to make an offer, and they need to do everything they can to make thetalented people they see want to join them.It is no secret that in this situation, some recruitment companies on thesurface sound like the perfect place for you. This is where you need to digdeeper to find out if they are a fit and a match for what you actually want in anew role. Just as we might focus on certain aspects and attributes we have ininterviews to help us get the jobs we want, the people on the other side of thetable may be trying to over emphasize certain things about their culture orconditions to attract the best recruitersThis doesnt mean that you need to be cynical about every fantastic soundingworking environment. Many companies really do embrace modern workingcultures that can include some great perks and some genuine flexibility, butyou need to ask the right questions at interview to try and find out what thereal deal is. Here are some ideas:
  • 3. GSR2R Award Winning Rec2Rec company http://www.gsr2r.com call 0203178 8118How Fast do people get up and running?This is a simple question and will give you an idea of the learning curve in thatrecruitment sector and environment. An additional follow on question mightbe, “What sort of induction/ training programme do you have for new teammembers. If this is met by a blank stare this could be something to considerwhen it comes down to making a decision. Any dynamic Recruitment andstaffing company will spend time and money on training their staff. In todayenvironment they have to otherwise they will fall behind. If this is somethingthey are clear they don’t do and you know that it is important to you perhapsthis isn’t the company for you.How much do your top performers make?Dont be blinded by an amazing sounding commission programme. It is likelythat you can hit those figures. You just need to have an accurate handle on thetime frame. If the employer can give you real examples of team members whohave recently earned impressive bonuses, this is a sign that the high billingspromised is actually attainable.How many of your staff regularly work from home?In today’s business economy this is important and will give you a clue to how‘developed’ and open the company is.If you want or need to be able to workfrom home from time to time and the company makes it sound like this isgoing to be no problem, ask them for an idea of how many of their team dothis, and how regularly.Many recruitment companies are vaguely open to the idea of home workingand will say this to potential employees, but in reality it just hasnt becomepart of their culture yet – maybe one or two senior people do it once in a whilewith plenty of notice, but if you were thinking youd have everything youneeded to work from home one day a week, or at short notice if your kids werehome sick, this might not be something they would welcome.
  • 4.
