    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Property Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    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!!

    Property Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at FirstPort (London, England) in April 2018.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • What relevant experience can I bring to the role?
      Provide an example where I’ve had to deal with a difficult customer. What was the issue, how did I deal with it and would I do anything differently?

      Examples of working with other departments, and what challenges there have been and how did these get sorted out.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Halesowen, England
    No Offer
    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.

    Compliance Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Luton, East of England, England

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at FirstPort (Luton, East of England, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Internal application so it was organised quite quickly and the interview went well. Sadly I have never heard back about the result which is in fact typical of this company. I find this situation very unprofessional.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FirstPort (Yarm, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process was standard usual ability and personal questions asked.

    Waiting to hear back from them 1 week, still waiting for feedback as to why I was unsuccessful for the position and that has really knocked my confidence.
