    I have to say that i am not surprised at all by the results of this. Our recruitment process is a one size fits all affair that takes all day! Candidates come in early and if they're chosen to stay for the afternoon portion too it can really take it out of them, I've had candidates walk out partway through as it's too long.
    Interviewing a receptionist or an administrator the same way you'd interview for a member of the executive team is counter productive and all too often classed by the interviewees as overkill. We've lost out on candidates because of this, especially as many cannot afford to take a whole day off for an interview.
    It's about time someone shook things up and looked at recruitment logically.
