    Management Level Position Interview

    Interview

    Interactions with HR recruitment team members and interview with a member of senior management. HR recruitment's verbal description of the role did not completely reflect management's view of the role, and this became evident at interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (London, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    After three telephone interviews and two questionnaires I was told I would be contacted the following week with feedback on the interview and any information about next steps. The following week I saw the same job advertised on other job boards yet no one had had the courtesy to give me an update. After three weeks and numerous emails, to the hr rep who had initially contacted me, requesting an update on what was happening I was totally ignored and disregarded. Doesn’t bode well for what it must be like to actually work for the company - they are totally disrespectful of people’s time and effort, extremely unprofessional and all in all the experience was extremely disheartening. I would not recommend anyone to apply here at all, they could run a bath let alone a professional application process. I can understand why they have so many roles currently available and such bad reviews they have a total lack of decency. Avoid at all costs!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Manchester, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Initial telephone screening followed by two in person meetings. A blend of personality, knowledge and motivations. Second meeting focussed more on working style and a couple of competency questions, but was a very nice blend of informal fact finding.

    HR Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Manchester City Centre, England) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The process was in three stages - initial telephone screening followed by two face-to-face interviews. The hiring managers were friendly and knowledgeable. The first interview was a competency based and the final one performance based following a personality test. They gave me a clear explanation about the role and the company.

    The only negative remark is the time they took to send feedback. I didn't receive any feedback following the final round which is disappointing given the positive experience I got from meeting the hiring managers.

    Overall it is a good interview process. I would suggest adding more performance based questions for any similar roles in the future and making sure that candidates receive feedback on a timely manner.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Reading, England) in November 2018.

    Interview

    It was a 3 stage process:

    Telephone interview with the recruitment agency - just the usual questions like what do you know about Aldermore (had to remember and think on my feet but he was impressed with the responses!)
    Telephone interview with one of the team
    Face to face interview the hiring manager and a member of the team - included a task on requirements and processes and some questions about how I approach stakeholders and changes in scope and requirements. It was a really relaxing chat and had an informal feel but I think that was also down to the hiring manager and the other person in the interview. The hiring manager was very approachable, down to earth and not intimidating at all. It was a genuine 2 way process and I felt comfortable having an honest and open discussion about what I was looking for and we found common ground. Definitely better than the competency based nonsense I have had elsewhere - won't be sticking around in any future interviews if they aren't as relaxed as this - it's a benchmark. Dunno whether the interview approach was the hiring manager or the organisation - the hiring manager I think.

    Really happy with the process. It felt like a genuine 2 way conversation throughout all the stages and they were efficient and quick - unlike other organisations who I have interviewed with over the past few months - now I have a benchmark to compare their ineptitude against.

    Credit Risk Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmslow, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Wilmslow, England) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was very strange. One interviewer repeatedly swore throughout the interview which I found to be very unprofessional. It's one things for colleagues to casually swear amongst each other but it's a massive red flag if it's happening several times during an interview process. The interviewer kept asking vague questions, knowing that I'm a recent graduate with no industry experience, and getting frustrated when I didn't have the answer. The role itself was explained with some degree of depth but it felt like the interviewer was trying very hard to sell it as a 'boring job' which came off odd as well.

    Definitely one to avoid for me.
