Liars is the only word I can use regarding this company. They seemed to have made up their minds for who they hired but use the assessment day as a hoax to draw people in order to make commission. They make you do assessments that have no relation to the actual company and want you to discuss your non-academic achievements - thus if you aren't sporty then you certainly won't get the job.
There is also an element of racism involved. As a Scottish applicant, the first thing they asked was what our thoughts on Brexit was. In the end, those who answered never got progressed to the next stage. Furthermore, they disagree with any other view that isn't pro leave.
The presentations were a joke and those who went to the panel reviewers progressed whereas the majority only had one assessor in the audience. This is unfair to those who genuinely worked hard on their presentations - which Pareto themselves constantly told us to do.
During the assessment, we were kept in a cold room for 7 hours thus making everyone exhausted by the end of the day.
There is not much more I can say, but be mindful when Pareto call, they could be luring you with false hope into a job where you need to have no soul or creative thought.
At least they talk to you
