I went to an assessment day in Feb and overall it was brilliant. There were approximately 50 candidates going for the same job.
The day was organised very well and all the staff from Pareto were fantastic. They made you feel comfortable and also confident. They were polite and made time to speak with all candidates.
The group activities were fun and testing. People have blogged that those who shout the loudest get noticed but that is completely wrong. I was quite quiet but only opened my mouth where necessary, and those who shouted and spoke pure rubbish should have gone home within the first ten minutes.
I am obviously going to be happy because I landed myself a fantastic new job with many prospects. The company is very professional and have very good business ethics, so it is not as if Pareto have placed me with a rubbish company.
The company directors were also at the assessment day they had the final say on which candidates they wanted to recruit and for some of those who were unsuccessful Pareto placed them on their recruitment database.
My advice for those who will be attending an assessment in the future is that you definitely attend but only if you are genuine, do not think you can turn up and pretend to be someone amazing because they want people who have the ability to learn new things not those who think they already know it all. This is why there are so many negative comments because candidates failed to impress and they are blaming Pareto for their own failure. Pareto is giving graduates an opportunity and I strongly advise you take this opportunity as jobs are very tough to come by.
