    Graduate Property Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Luton, East of England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FirstPort (Luton, East of England, England) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I underwent an assessment centre interview after successfully completing a telephone interview. The assessment was insightful as it gave me an opportunity to illustrate my key skills in a group environment. We were required to present two presentations to a board panel explaining reasons for and against your choices for a brand topic. Once that was finished a formal interview and assessment reasoning test was required to be undertaken

    Finance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southwark, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FirstPort (Southwark, England) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone interview, second round with line manager third with CEO. First 2 rounds was easy to make an impression and the line manager wanted me. Unfortunately the CFO had other ideas and decided I did not have enough experience (based on a 20min conversation). Didn't really get a great vibe from him, very rash and lacked critical understanding of my past experience ... one dimensional.

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Halesowen, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FirstPort (Halesowen, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Invited to a first interview after online application. The interview lasted roughly half an hour and the atmosphere was generally OK. More than 2 weeks has passed and still no contact from anyone so I had to chase the result of my own interview which is ridiculous. I phoned twice and eventually got contact details of their HR team and was told I had not got the role. I should not have to chase up my own interview especially after being told I would be contacted at the end of the week in which my interview took place.

    Interview

    Stage 1: Telephone interview
    Stage 2: Interview with recruiting manager

    Internal candidate applying for role. Disappointingly did not receive any feedback from interview and found out someone else had been appointed by emailed announcement to team/ company. Others are hi have applied for roles and been unsuccessful have also had similar experiences. Terribly disappointing.

    Property Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FirstPort in July 2018.

    Interview

    Applied directly and was called within 48 hours to arrange a telephone interview. Telephone interview went well and I was told that I would get a call back the next day to arrange a face to face interview as they were looking to arrange interviews quickly. I have not heard anything since and that was almost a month ago. It is obvious that I have not been successful but after being told I would get a call I would expect that to happen or at the very least and email. All very unprofessional!!
