    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Clarion Events (London, England).

    Interview

    Face to face, one-on-one interview with the Head of Corporate Development.
    The interview was extremely rigorous, lasting close to two hours, but I never felt sold on the opportunity. It also wasn't entirely clear which job I was being considered for (they were recruiting for 2 positions, possibly only speculatively).
    The hiring manager said I should feel free to get in touch with him to ask any questions, following the interview, and appeared to indicate that I would be invited back to a 2nd/final stage interview. I never heard back, and the recruiter (who later got me a job elsewhere!) also never heard back from them, despite repeated chasing. So I eventually called the interviewer (I mean he did say to call him!), who said he did get back to the recruiter, and that they had offered someone else the job. His attitude was thoroughly unprofessional. I have attended hundreds of interviews over the years for both junior and senior positions, and this is one of the only interviews I never heard back from.
