    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, career opportunities, fruit once a week, social events, Xmas parties, very sociable crowd, young full of fresh ideas, training and development is good, few very skilled people managers

    Cons

    Below market rates, contributes to staff attrition, few areas understaffed and overworked. Some managers not experienced enough to lead teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clear path to promote the leaders of tomorrow, reward individuals who have added value. Introduce cross departmental workshops to create synergy and knowledge transfer between teams.

    Business Director - Sourcing Division Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tag Worldwide in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I attended a couple of interview over the last 3 weeks, after my recruiter put my CV forward in speculative manner to the HR manager, which had immediately been impressed with my CV and its pertinence.

    During the first interview I met the MD of the division and a GAD. The interview was really thorough yet informal, I was made feel very at ease, and the feedback given to my rec agency a few hours later was extremely positive (and totally aligned with mine - I also felt it had gone really well and i had actually enjoyed it). The words "There is definitely a position here for this candidate" were mentioned to my recruiter in writing, together with other positive comments on my fit with the agency and my personality. At this stage, Tag wanted to put together a precise job description and see whether this was of interest to me - and take it from there.

    A couple of weeks later I received the job description and it was exactly what I was hoping for.
    Together with the JD came the offer to meet with a Business Director and another GAD. This interview was less interesting than the previous one (=I had to repeat a lot of what I had already said in my first interview- career path overview, experience, examples etc - but nothing out of the ordinary or particularly challenging. I could also see that the BD was rather experienced, whether the GAD was in my opinion less striking/knowledgeable than the one that I had met during my first interview).
    Towards the end I was informed of the next steps - after internal alignment I would hear back with a potential proposal within 48 hrs. I had just stepped out of the building that my rec agent had already received a message from Tag's HR manager saying that both the BD and the GAD that I had met had informed her that the interview had gone really well. The HR manager did also mention the next steps in the process - exactly those told to me in the interview.

    And here the plot thickens...

    At the end of those 48 hrs my rec agent started chasing up an outcome with the HR manager, to no reply. 3 days later he received a call informing him that I would not receive an offer.

    The reasons given were:
    a) I had no cultural fit with East Europe.
    Surprisingly, this was never a prerequisite or even mentioned neither as a must have nor as a nice to have in the job description - and during my second interview I had even explained my recent experience in successfully managing clients and delivery teams in that very market, and I had substantiated this with facts;
    b) not enough experience in implementing pieces of business.
    This has been my role focus for the last 5 years, during which I have actually successfully delivered significant programmes for major retailers and FMCGs and have handled multi-million budgets...

    I struggle to find words to describe how puzzled I felt on hearing all of this...

    The HR manager was embarrassed in delivering the news to my recruiter (they know each other well having worked together on several recruitment briefs); this latter (an extremely experienced professional) was at loss for words - as he knows me really well and could not understand and believe this outcome after I had sailed through 2 exhaustive interviews.

    This experience has obviously left me with a rather bad taste in my mouth. I had started to believe that for once an agency was conducting a recruitment process in a fair and professional way. Obviously this was not the case with Tag on this very occasion.

    Interview Questions
    • Not a particularly difficult one, but the GAD asked me how I would allocate budgets into "buckets" across markets.   Answer Question
