    Associate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goodman Masson (London, England) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Messed up. Brought in to the office in January. Met three senior managers and was told I had the job. Called a week later and told the job was not available until April. Called in march and told that my job was no longer available and could I come in for further interviews. Had more interviews offered a job. Started in April then told to leave to weeks later despite topping he company league table in terms of kpi. Ridiculous reason given for termination. Company may be under some trouble.....

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goodman Masson (London, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for a role who Goodman Masson were recruiting for. I had a telephone conversation with the recruiter. The recruiter clearly didn't know about the technical aspects of this finance role e.g. key terminology. After preparing for the interview for days, for some reason on the day of the interview the recruiter decided to cancel. Of course, just like the majority of recruiters, they lied and said how the company were moving forward internally with the role (so original) and that they'd give me a shout if it came live. Sure enough, they never did. Pathetic time wasters.

    Marketing Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goodman Masson (London, England) in July 2015.

    Interview

    2 stage interview - first one was with marketing manager and second one with director who covers marketing department. Second interview also included a indesign test. First stage was pretty laid back and we just talked through previous achievements and experience. Second stage with the director was however a little more difficult as the director really hones in on your personality and whether you would fit in with the team or not.

    Face-to-face interview with the head of recruitment for the program in the office.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Goodman Masson in December 2010.

    Interview

    My CV was put forward for this role by a recruiter who had previously put me forward for other similar roles. Goodman Masson responded quickly expressing interest and looking to arrange an initial phone interview. The phone interview was arranged quickly and easily for a few days later giving me time to prepare. My potential line manager rang at the agreed time and the conversation was friendly, lasting about 30 minutes, after which he invited me to their offices for a face-to-face interview.

    My 1:1 interview took place a few days after the phone call. It lasted about 2 hours and was more hostile that the original phone call despite being conducted by the same person. Questions were fired off quite quickly and a number were pretty intrusive, e.g. the size of my savings account as a measure of how well (or not) I had done in previous roles. During the interview it also transpired that the position available was completely different to the one sold to me (and my external recruiter), i.e. handling temporary placements not permanent ones and in a completely different market sector to the one I had knowledge of. At the end, my interviewer stated that he wanted a colleague to meet me too. I waited about 10 minutes for his colleague to arrive and interview me. This interview consisted of him talking at me for 35 minutes and only asking me three questions!

    Despite my and my (external) recruiters best efforts, over a two week period, we never managed to get a response as to whether I had been successful or not. Goodman Masson did not even show basic courtesy by sending a one line email to inform me that I hadn't got the role...and to this day, still haven't.
