Always try to meet face to face. It really is a no brainer.
Yes, but at least in Switzerland do you not just show up at a recruiting agency unannounced and expect to meet somebody else than the assistant at the front desk... Headhunter are nothing else than sales people - they want to close deals and you are their product to sell. Like any other business person is their time their money, so they only meet you if you are matching their customers or at least interesting enough to fill up the database... if a headhunter would meet you without any screening and setting up an appointment would that be a red flag for me. He cannot be worth the time meeting...
