    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at De La Rue in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Professional at all times, interviewers at all levels were friendly and helpful. The process itself was quite standard with 1st round and 2nd round interviews with increasingly more important interviewers from several different sections of the business. The office was clearly expensive but low key, all fixtures and fittings ooze money; everywhere you go it is obvious this is a company that are doing well! The employees are all content with their employers, some that I met had 40+ years service. The culture is smart and dynamic, it's very clear that these two things are highly prized at De La Rue.

    Business Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at De La Rue in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    This company has a lot of business challenge, knows it wants to change, but is terribly afraid to change. It won't grasp the nettle and get on with it. In the interview, I think I scared the hell out of them by simply discussing the ins and outs of change management. They liked me, but were afraid of the content. A real shame because I could have done loads for them!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at De La Rue in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on Wednesday, was contacted by HR on Friday to set up a phone interview for Monday. Had phone interview on Monday and then was scheduled for an in-plant interview on Wednesday.

    Panel type interview with hiring manager and three other department mangers. They seemed to be distracted during interview. One reeked of cigarette smoke and seemed antsy to leave - probably needed a nicotine fix. One actually walked out during the process and came back a few minutes later with food which they snacked on for the remainder of the interview. They didn't seem to know what they wanted. Interview was quite disorganized - questions were bizarrely random.
