    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hastings Direct.

    Interview

    Has an initial interview and received very positive feedback and I was told they wanted to bring me back to meet with 2 senior people for the next stage. Despite chasing from my end this was never setup and I never heard back from them again. Considering I took time away from an existing role for the 1st interview I consider it very poor to be ghosted in this way especially considering the positive feedback from the 1st interview.

    Motor Claims Advisor Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hastings Direct (Leicester, England).

    Interview

    Didn't get as far as answering questions as a friend passed away 90 minutes before interview. The company then decided to grant me an interview but for a job that was not what I was after - they only told me of this 5 minutes into the rescheduled interview which I was not prepared for!

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leicester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hastings Direct (Leicester, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Pros : Friendly relaxed environment, engaging interviewer.
    Cons : Was informed by the interviewer that they are looking to hire 200 people and have high staff turnover for this role and yet despite my 20 years customer service experience, local and worldwide, received the un-personal, computer generated "People are better suited with more experience" email.
    I understand the inner workings and worry of sifting through people who are "too experienced and too old" I guess my advice is, should you have the sufficient ability to think for yourself and have too much experience with customer care and rapport then this is not the company for you. In short i would've appreciated honesty rather than wasting my time.

    Interview

    Video interview is the worst . They should not reject based on a video interview as the interviewee gets nervouse and cannot showcase their skills through a video than they can face to face
