    HR Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Carey Group Plc (Glasgow, Scotland) in December 2019.

    Interview

    It was a fairly lengthy interview process involving online tests, telephone and face to face interviews. The questions were largely competency based with some technical questions as well. The final stage involved a presentation. For each stage of the process I put a lot of time and energy into preparing, so it definitely wasn’t an easy process.

    BDM Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Carey Group Plc (London, England) in January 2019.

    Interview

    20 mins phone interview. Followed by a panel interview. The call was of average difficulty and was more or less an opportunity to find out more about myself as a potential employee. They asked me about examples of sales challenges I have faced in the past about how I overcame said challenges. Once the call was nearing the end, they asked me if I had any questions for them. Overall the interview was painless and a good chance both them and I to identify if this was a good fit.

    Interview Questions

    • They mainly asked why they should hire me. Also asked about my background in sales.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Carey Group Plc (Wembury, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Warm welcome but that's where it ended. Two psychometric tests and panel interview later - nothing - 'nada'. Two of the four panel members stayed mute and just kept checking their watches?

    22 Jun 2017 – Head of HR

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your interview at our Wembley office for the role of Head of People Development. We are still in the process of interviewing excellent candidates and will be moving to the next stage soon.

    This is a key role for us so we are taking our time to ensure we find the ideal person, and in turn that we are the ideal company for that person. We are indeed using two tools for this role, one measures work based motivations and behaviours and the other cognitive intelligence - this helps us to ensure people join us and succeed in their roles.

    We were on a tight schedule on some of the interview days and your feedback will be given to the panel to ask them to maybe reduce the number of times they check their watches.

    Thank you for your interest in joining our company.

    4 hrs interview at Wembley stadium, it was ok but very tiring and regretful experience after getting the job. They made you do group exercises and an individual presentation

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carey Group Plc.

    Interview

    It was an assessment day with one group exercise and one long-lasting interview.

    I really enjoyed it, the HR people were rather friendly while the interviewers (engineers mostly) were friendly as well!

    Overall, it was a very good experience from a great company! The assessment day lasted 4-5 hours and they offered lunch as well.

    The offices are a great place to work and they also offer there gym facilities and breakfast!

    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Carey Group Plc (London, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Good cop. Bad cop. Interview process was odd in that it was hard to tell if one interviewer was far too enthusiastic and the other was there under duress, but perhaps this is a standard way Careys interviews all staff.
