Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Douglas & Gordon (London, England, England) in May 2021

Interview

The recruiter contacted me by email shortly after I applied, then followed up with a 15-minute phone interview the next day. I was then booked into one of their recruitment evenings at the head office in Fulham (with seven other applicants). This consisted of a short presentation and then a meet-and-greet with various senior staff while candidates were taken off for one-to-one interviews. The presenter made it clear that the networking component was important, and staff were very friendly and effective in trying to engage with everyone. The one-to-one interview was straightforward, lasting maybe 30-45 minutes. All told, it was about two hours. Recruitment made a point of contacting me to give feedback on why my application was unsuccessful. The result wasn’t surprising but it was nice of them to take the time all the same.

Interview Questions
  • Pretty standard: why property, why D&G, why this role, describe your previous sales experience, how do you build rapport with clients, etc. I don’t recall any curveballs.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Douglas & Gordon (London, England, England) in Jul 2014

Interview

Initial communication was set through a recruiter, although the company had been on my radar for a while. It was a 3 tiered interview process. The first was a phone interview, followed by a personality test, a meeting with their HR recruiter, and then finally with the main decision maker. All interviews were held at their main corporate office in West London.

Interview Questions
  • The first interview with the HR director was very pleasant in terms of it being more of a "meet & greet" scenario. There weren't many probing questions other than my goals, thoughts for the future, and why in particular I was interested in D&G. The final interview was definitely a bit more thorough. I felt a lot of the questions were more pertinent to my personal life decisions I had made versus the actual work at hand: "Why would I choose to leave my home country to move to London?", "How can I afford to live in the postcode I do without having a job", etc. While not what I was used to, I do understand that they are trying to assess a candidates proper fit within their organisation. What I found to be most unexpected was the emphasis on the personality test. I think a lot of weight was put on those results. Certainly these types of evaluations lend insight into a employees motivations and work habits, but does not paint a full or accurate portrait of a candidates potential for success. This interview lasted about an hour. Suffice it to say I did not get the position. The general consensus was that I was probably not the best fit, which is fair enough. In truth I have to say that the position seemed to be very much what I was looking for and was disappointed not to get the job. What can I say - you win some and you lose some. I am still glad I went for it.
