    Sales Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Countrywide plc (London, England) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Met with an AssiociateDirector face to face. The entire interview was based on robotic questions about my CV rather than a more genuine human interaction to get to know more about me. My interviewer looked about 20 years old but was rather arrogant in his approach and obviously insecure about his junior appearance and demeanor. I found the attitude quite offensive as the questioning of the CV felt more like skepticism about the validity of my experience and an attempt to undermine the achievements I have made.Simplistic line of questioning which was based on a tick box interview guide. Judgemental and condescending.
    The result of which I did not feel I had represented myself properly, rather felt like I was being judged and cross examined by someone who felt they knew so much better than me despite the fact that they were director of a branch that was in serious decline. But they have no doubt received a small plastic trophy once for being negotiator of the month and feel like they are King of the world! With this style of selection of personnel I can see why the company is in decline and why it will continue on that downward trajectory.

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Countrywide plc in February 2019.

    Had somewhat intensive questioning for 2hrs (not my longest I've had). I really enjoyed it though and quite engaging. The excitement of being called up for an interview for a large corporate listed company was brilliant.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Countrywide plc.

    Interview

    The interview was friendly, using a good combination of formal and informal questioning, and a genuine desire to make the job feel appealing. The questions were relevant, easing me into questions I expected, and taxing me on those I didn't.
    The interviewees turned out to be my coworkers, and they were just as nice before I got the job as they were after.
