    Accounts Creation Clerk Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brakes Group (Ashford, Kent, South East England, England) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Process was fairly straight forward. Applied using their website, got a call a couple of days later inviting me in for an interview which is where the problems began regarding the time as there was some confusion on if someone would be available for my time. In the end it was sorted so that I did keep my original time so all was good on that front.

    When I arrived for the interview, I was then informed that they had had a mix-up and that the job description that that was attached to the advert was in fact for a different position. Was given the actual JD and asked would I still be interested. I read it and was so proceeded with the interview.

    It was the strangest interview I've ever had regarding that mix up and the fact that neither of the two people interviewing me made any notes during it. I got asked the standard interview questions and tried to best answer them which was made a lot more difficult considering what I'd prepared for actually a different role entirely.

    Interviewed on the Friday. Received the rejection on the Monday which was nice to actually hear back but what is puzzling is that the position had actually been re-advertised with an extended closing date by a week only this time with the correct job description. Especially as the reason given was they had 'met candidates who match the criteria for the role to a greater degree.'

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brakes Group (Reading, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. Usual hoops to jump through prior to assessment day. Long day of team assessment and interview the end of the day. Not a huge amount of constuctive feedback post interview. Just the fact that other candidates had more experience. Surely you can get this from the CV. Waste of two days to be honest.

    Senior Customer Development Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brakes Group (Ashford, Kent, South East England, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The line manager turned up for the interview 15 minutes late. The manager stated that they just wanted a chat about the job and my experience. However, it rapidly became apparent that what they wanted was some free consulting advice on how to reduce their company's churn rate. They had no interest in employing me or anyone else. This is a totally unprofessional company.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brakes Group (Ashford, Kent, South East England, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had some online tests, including a verbal and numerical test, followed by a short telephone interview and assessment centre. The online tests were very straightforward and I had more difficulty getting the website to work properly. The telephone interview consisted of four questions about personal motivation and finance. The assessment centre was half a day and consisted of a pre-prepared presentation, interview, case study and group discussion.
