I have to be honest, I was left speechless after being exposed to the way Pareto go about their business. I understand that essentially, the recruitment staff who call you are sales people, who must meet targets, but that is no excuse for asking instrusive questions and being simply very rude after I told them that I had received an offer from another company and would not be attending the AC. At the end of the day, this company offers you the world on a plate and from the minute that they contacted me I knew that it was all perhaps too good to be true. Again, as with others on this site, I applied for a specifically advertised role which I thought I would suit - I did not hold myself out to be involved in a screening test for the new breed of obnoxious salesman. This practice is misleading and completely misrepresents what they are about. It stinks of unprofessionalism when Pareto suddenly lose their manners the minute you are no longer a viable target - I could practically hear the cartoon dollar signs in the agent's eyes stop rolling and there was an audible sign when I dashed her hopes of a nice chunk of commission for the month.
Don't get involved, even if you're desperate - beg, borrow and steal rather than engage with Pareto. I have now experienced the recruitment process of a number of smaller agencies with which I was far more impressed. Making it through the screening process and being a 'successful' applicant with Pareto really isn't anything to write home about.
