Application

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