    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at De Vere (Beaumont, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    The interview felt very rushed and I didn't get a chance to talk to the person who will be my direct superior. Everything seemed very state forward on the interview, however, the reality was ..... Shocking! I had never seen anything like it before or after! HR to hit numbers hire the people they can not speak English and expect the Managers to do magic. You can't even give your team a breath, as they don't understand what you are saying!
