    Head of Infrastructure Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Applied online, emailed by the recruiter to arrange a phone screen which led to a face to face interview onsite at Camelot HQ. Was told that feedback on next steps would be within two weeks.

    Despite multiple emails and phone calls to the recruiter in question, no feedback has ever been given. Now over 6 weeks later I have given up ever getting any.

    Very disappointing given the level of the role and the fact that a face to face interview took place. Poor candidate experience from the recruitment team.

    Interview Questions

    • Competency based interview talking through relevant experience for the role.   Answer Question

    Payroll Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Camelot Group (London, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I only got approached yesterday about this role and I went out of my way this evening to get there after been at work all day, this first person who interviewed me was just rude. Patronized and humiliated me over the payroll test put me under extreme pressure with regards to knowing the ins and outs of certain area's wanting full explanation if this is a representative for camelot I feel for the company as a whole on the upside the payroll manager was lovely polite and courteous grateful that I made time for them.
    If they offered me the job tomorrow I would turn it down flat.

    Principal Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Camelot Group (London, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    They didn't book a room for the interview so had to hunt down a room overall several floors but then then technical problems and half an hour later we finally started.

    Been given a piece of paper with a long question on it basically to implement a simulation that plays recurring lottery draws for over a period of time.

    We were running out of time and got asked some technical questions but that was it. Very shallow and manic intreview. Seemed like a manic place for the short time I was there.

    Haven't had any feedback from the company but been asked by the recruiter to remove or change my previous glassdoor review about the phone interview. When I saw other employess reviewing about being monitored it totally makes sense.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Camelot Group (London, England) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone call from HR, did the phone interview there and then. Got invited for a face to face which I attended. So I put a lot of effort into this interview, took a day off work to attend this interview so for me to be given zilch off HR regarding the interview, not a yes or a no or any feedback just shows how unprofessional this company. I do understand that you are busy and not just dealing with myself but everyone has a busy life that they are trying to get along without wondering what has happened in the job interview. Sent a couple of emails and phoned a couple of times, the recruiter has refused to acknowledge my emails or phone calls.
