Application

I applied online. I interviewed at BAT in Jan 2022

Interview

The interview process took less than 10 minutes. I applied on the company's website and I immediately received an invitation to complete the pymetrics games. I've already completed the games for another company and therefore I couldn't complete them again for BAT and my previous results were automatically sent to BAT. I immediately received an email stating that my application was unsuccessful. I find this quite hilarious since the entire process took less than 10 minutes and I wan't even evaluated based on my real experience, postgraduate studies and skills.

Interview

Candidatura presentata online, mi viene inviato un link per Assessment Pymetrics con 12 brevi giochi che misurano diverse caratteristiche del candidato (attenzione, generosità, apprendimento ecc). Dopo aver completato i giochi (secondo la piattaforma pymetrics con ottimi risultati) mi viene inviata immediatamente una mail automatica da BAT con la quale mi dicono che il processo non sarebbe andato avanti. Perché? Non è dato sapere. Rivedete i vostri processi di selezione, facendo colloqui con PERSONE e non affidandovi a piattaforme. Philip Morris su questo sta veramente su altri livelli.

Interview Questions
  • Test di logica e prove su attitudine al rischio, generosità ecc

Interview

Recrutamento e seleção realizado por Costa Rica. Foram rápidos com as devolutivas. Foram duas entrevistas, sendo uma por telefone com o RH da Costa Rica, com 3 perguntas em português e 2 em inglês, e a outra foi realizada com 4 gestores da mesma área por vídeo chamada. Em ambos os momentos, foi um “bate-papo” super tranquilo e o pessoal é bem acolhedor. O processo ocorreu em 2 semanas, desde a primeira entrevista até a aprovação.

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at BAT in Dec 2021

Interview

Before I knew anything more detailed about the position, I was sent an exercise by the company which I had to prepare and submit within 2 hours. The assignment wasn't difficult, but I needed to study at least the basics of the legislation in advance, which is specific and you don't come across it unless you are strictly part of the tobacco industry. I would not have minded the above in itself. However, the face-to-face interview was a complete disaster and I don't think I have ever walked away from an interview so disgusted. Not only that, but I didn't find out information about BAT and the position until the very end of the interview, and even then only after my questions. The interview was totally off, the potential supervisor was incredibly arrogant when I told him that I don't deal with certain legal issues and I delegate the activity to another person, therefore I know nothing about the subject, he probably needed to heal his ego because he was asking me questions about exactly what I told him I didn't know. Not counting any preparation, I wasted 3 hours interviewing and processing the assignment from BAT, and they didn't even bother to text me that they weren't hiring.

Interview Questions
  • The questions were directed at the exercise given, others were directed at government regulations in relation to covid 19 restrictions and how they affect other legislation.

1st interview was a 30-min, very casual, one with a bright HR head interviewer. Ice breaker to begin the interview, introduction was made by both sides, and my interest in the firm/program was asked for.

Interview Questions
  • Why are you interested in the firm? How can you contribute to your peers and the firm?

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at BAT in Nov 2021

Interview

The interview was not difficult and the recruiters seemed nice enough, but their entire operation was plagued by disfunction. BAT appears to be running their U.S. recruiting out of Costa Rica. They said their process is broken down into four steps: a pymetrics assessment, an interview with a recruiter, an interview with the hiring team, and a final assessment. From the beginning there was chaos. After completing the pymetrics assessment I was placed on two different recruiter's lists. The first recruiter that reached out interviewed me for the wrong position. I had applied for law and external affairs, but I was being interviewed for a production job. However, since it was the first interview many of the questions were simply basic "get to know you" questions. It wasn't until the final two or three questions that something seemed off. The second recruiter reached out around a week later. I assumed that I had made it to the next stage in their process. However, as soon as we began to speak it became clear it was the exact same interview. The second recruiter checked and sure enough they had made a mistake and interviewed me for the wrong position in the management program. They said they would simply carry over my answers from the first interview. However, since my first interview was for a production process position, they didn't have my answers for the job I actually applied for. I received a boiler plate rejection letter two days later with most of the empty fields blank. The letter was from BAT, not one of the recruiters, and the position I was rejected from was blank. Because there was so much confusion in their process and I wasn't sure if I was being rejected from the production job or the legal job, I reached out for clarification. My email was ignored.
