“FTSE250 job in weeks. ”

Written on: 20/06/2016 by ybArsenault494 (1 review written)

I originally applied to a job post that I didn't know Pareto were recruiting for. I had a call with my initial recruiter and was invited to take part in the telephone interview. The same day I passed through that stage and was sent details of the next graduate assessment day. Mine was at the Radisson Blu in Leeds. I didn't really know what to expect of the day as it was my first graduate day. After getting parked and settling in, I joined a few graduates who had already gathered, and began to… Read Full Review

“Highly recommended!”

Written on: 20/06/2016

Had a brilliant experience with Pareto. Uploaded my CV on their site a few months back and had a call regarding a global organisation not too far from me. After a really motivating chat with a recruiter, we had a telephone interview, where i was then invited to the assessment centre a week later. I was fortunate enough to have the job offered on the same day as the assessment. There was roughly 45 graduates being assessed on the day and only 10 got the job. It was a brilliant experience. I… Read Full Review

“assessment and training”

Written on: 14/06/2016 by paulatpenketh (2 reviews written)

the assessment day was very professional but overall great - was conducted in a very professional manner and resulted in me being offered the job. On going training has helped massively and the teaching staff have been very insightful and current in their delivery. Support from Pareto has been good too and I would recommend any graduate looking for either their first job or a change of role to engage with these guys. They tell it straight and for some that can be a shock to the system - however… Read Full Review

“Great”

Written on: 25/05/2016

I had a fantastic experience with Pareto. They were very supportive through the whole process and found me a variety of job interviews in a short space of time. I was offered 2 jobs in one week. Since being at my job I have taken 3 Pareto course - all trainers have be very knowledgeable and I found the courses very effective in my day to day role. Would highly recommend them if you are looking for a job… Read Full Review

“Pareto are the BEST”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by Little425 (1 review written)

He was my point of contact at Pareto up until my assessment day, supporting me fully with any questions and queries that I had. She was really friendly and helpful every time we spoke and convinced me to attend an assessment day at Pareto. She fully outlined what the day would entail and what the process would be afterwards if I was successful. When I attended the assessment day, he introduced herself and calmed my nerves and gave me the confidence that I needed on the day. The assessment day… Read Full Review

“Takes the stress out of job hunting ”

Written on: 25/05/2016

From my first contact with Pareto leading upto and throughout the assessment day all the staff gave me loads of advice for what to do next once finishing university. I have had a few follow up calls since passing the assessment day and contacted by people in both the Manchester and Leeds office and all have listened to what I want to do next and directed me towards roles I might consider. Leading up to an interview tomorrow I have had a few emails and calls from the account manager for the role… Read Full Review

“Most effective way to find a job as a graduate”

Written on: 25/05/2016 by Kelleros137 (1 review written)

I graduated in 2015 from Edge Hill with a degree in Psychology and no real direction. Pareto had me placed into a perfect role (where I am still now) in three weeks. The training was intensive, but, since this I have gone on to do really well in my reactive role. … Read Full Review

“Great Launch Pad for a Career in Sales”

Written on: 23/05/2016 by anonymous416 (1 review written)

I was referred to Pareto Law whilst working at my previous job. A customer, who I now consider to be a mentor, told me that if I wanted to do something a bit more up-market, challenging and rewarding to apply with Pareto as he had done years earlier. I found the vetting process very pragmatic and honest - a career sales is not for everyone, and thats okay. Those who are likely to succeed in sales must be articulate and professional communicators who are motivated by overachieving targets and… Read Full Review

“Complete and utter garbage”

Written on: 15/04/2016 by Adag397 (1 review written)

Where do I begin? If you're reading this you've probably been contacted by one of their "recruiters" already right? They told you they were impressed by your resume? (It's obvious they pitch everyone this way) but that's not important. The assessment day is a considerable waste of time, 6-7 hours of dumb tasks (some of which are legitimate tasks but still this doesn't matter). What does matter is the fact that THEY ARE LYING ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT THEY HAVE AVAILABLE. They talk about blue… Read Full Review

“So far so good!”

Written on: 23/03/2016 by s.britton (1 review written)

I applied online through Indeed, and shortly after got a call from a member of staff from Pareto. I passed the phone call interview which was conducted by a really friendly and supportive man, and was invited to the assessment day. I honnestly found the competition initially daunting once arriving, but everyone was friendly, excited, and ready to compete which fuelled my own competitiveness. Though it was an exhausting day, it was well structured, and the 'waiting periods' were filled with… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all costs - from someone who got a job...”

Written on: 11/03/2016 by otVelez226 (1 review written)

It's difficult to know where to start when summarising the absolute joke of a company that Pareto law is. Let me first state that I'm not someone, like a lot of people on here seem to be, who failed their assessment day and has come on here to complain about it. I was placed into a job through Pareto after succeeding in their assessment day and being the naive, fresh graduate that I was, jumped straight into a role. Pareto works like this: you attend an assessment day and complete a bunch… Read Full Review

“PARETO PYRAMID SCHEME - ASSESSMENT DAY FROM HELL!!!”

Written on: 10/03/2016 by KarsonMcDougall351 (1 review written)

After spending the best part of 7 hours in a room full of 50 graduates desperate for a job in sales I can safely say I should of gone with my gut feeling and not gone. I have wasted not only my time but also my money on attending a day that was an absolute waste of time. At the start we had a terribly boring uninformative lecture from whom I can only suppose was the manager for that particular assessment day. This lecture included going around the room and asking each candidate to tell the… Read Full Review

“Awful Company - Rubbish Assessment Day. Bad reflection...”

Written on: 03/02/2016 by Wheeleryi86 (1 review written)

I was recently invited to the Pareto O2 assessment day. It was awful. There were far too many candidates and they could barely get an accurate assessment of each candidates true qualities. Half the day was spent with everyone introducing themselves and one Pareto member of staff being very obnoxious and rude to most things people said. I was told that I would be presenting a presentation which I spent a great deal of time on and have an interview with O2 staff but instead this was conducted by… Read Full Review

“Unprofessional”

Written on: 12/01/2016 by CarlieDuggan140 (1 review written)

I am usually one to only write good reviews however I felt I had to share my experience. After applying for a couple of business development jobs on a job site I ended up with a telephone interview during which I was asked about my university degree. When I said the town in which I studied my master's degree I was abruptly asked which university. I said "university X" (a Russell Group university) but can't help feeling if I had said a lower ranked university this would have been judged… Read Full Review

“Good assessment day, bad after that.”

Written on: 10/01/2016 by kfTrevino232 (1 review written)

I never write reviews but feel like some truths about Pareto need to be shared as i honestly had an overall positive experience. I initially applied for a job online and got a call from a recruiter the next day. The recruiter was very friendly and I passed the telephone interview easily, all you have to do is make out that you are very driven and money motivated. He then more than prepared me for the assessment day, yes it is a long day but if your honestly right for the roles you'll get… Read Full Review

“Clingy”

Written on: 12/12/2015

So I applied for a job I saw on Reed.co.uk not realising Pareto only offer sales positions (nothing about sales in the advert). A few days later a lady rang me and did the whole 'you're amazing' pitch, told her what I was looking for which isn't sales. She was really pushy trying to get me to go to an assessment day, I told her I wasn't interested so eventually she gave up and that was that. So I thought... For over a month now they have been ringing me at least 2 or 3 times a week, and… Read Full Review

“Worst agency ever”

I applied for a role a couple of years ago and was unsucessful even though they didnt see my CV because i had sent it through recruiter website and they claimed they dont have it. And then they just said they cant process application. Recently saw another role you had to be a graduate and fluent in european language. I fit the criteria and they said they want to arrange telephone interview i was evryday for two weeks to get hold of the person who had to interview me. After leavin 10 voice mails… Read Full Review
