    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Government of the United Kingdom in June 2016.

    Interview

    This company - Highways England - offered me an interview during my holiday dates (which had notified them about in advance), and then interview offer withdrawn despite me ringing them and offering alternative dates either before or after my holiday. They refused to accomodate me so I did not have an interview with them. I was most disappointed.

    General Factotum Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Government of the United Kingdom (Lon (Burkina Faso)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty thorough all told. Some of the questions were really hard, particularly as I had only recently qualifies as a Special Factotum. What made it worse was the composition of the panel. They were really not very nice people to be interviewed by - very sceptical as a whole.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Government of the United Kingdom (Birmingham, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Chaotic and uncoordinated; was initially turned down for an interview then a couple of weeks later was invited for the interview. The first attempt had to be rescheduled due to the bad weather but despite 4 e-mails to the HR team and 4 unsuccessful phone calls to the office, I still hadnt manage to get through to anyone who could reschedule the interview or accept my apologies. In fact the switchboard operators couldnt find the names on the people who were interviewing me on the directory.

    At the interview they agreed to provide me with feedback the following week. I followed up with the HR department several times to find out if they were going to provide the feedback and I was told yes. Never got the feedback.
