    Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at First Central (London, England).

    Interview

    I applied directly through the website and was invited to a telephone interview via email by their recruitment team. This was an informal chat about my cv history to see if I had the skill set for the role. I was invited to a second video interview by email. This was competency based and bother managers were friendly and interview went well. They advised HR would let me know in a weeks time. This is where it went down hill. I never received a response for nearly two weeks so emailed for an update which I didn't get a response too. I followed up with a second email to the generic recruitment email address. I was then told I wasn't successful but got good feedback from the hiring managers. Having to chase their own recruitment for an update left a bitter taste for the company. I felt that's bad practice having candidates have to chase for an update after taking part in two interviews. I hope this was a one off and the recruiter gives candidate's feedback once available.

    First Central Response

    30 Jul 2020 – Director

    Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry to hear about the experience you had during your recruitment process with us. This is not the impression we wish to convey with our candidate journey and your feedback has been very helpful in finding a solution to help candidates understand the timeline for the outcome of their interview. We’ll now ask our hiring managers to give candidates an expected timeline during the interview.

    Some of our hiring managers are learning new ways of interviewing via video to ensure the candidate is right for the role, which can entail more than one stage to the interview, and in turn, extends the process.

    We treat all candidates fairly and don’t make any decisions until after all interviews have been completed. Going forward we’ll ensure that we update candidates at regular intervals.

    We value your feedback and hope you feel this solution will be part of a more positive journey for our candidates in the future.

    I wish you all the best in your search for a new career.

    Kind regards,
    Jo
