    Customer Service Executive Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) (Newbury, England) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Telephone interviewer was very nice. Asked about what experience I had in customer service, mainly a 20 min chat before being advised I was being put through for second interview. Advised second interview would be around the company values and a role play. I received the second interview 2 weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • Interviewed by 2 people
      Some questions were :
      What is the largest and smallest team you have worked in,
      What is your communication style
      What do you know about the role you are applying for.

      I had researched and had examples ready of what I had achieved around their company values, however I was not asked for any of these.
      Interview lasted an hour. Did not have the role play as suggested. Was advised I would hear in a few days but that was over a month ago and have heard nothing. I appreciate I didn't get the position as they re advertised it, but a decline email would have been polite. Thankfully I received a better offer from another company.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) (Leeds, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview asking about previous role and experience followed by invite to face to face interview. Face to face with 2 devs, v nice people. Went through competency questions around company values but they weren't really interested in that and quickly moved onto technical questions and I had to show some code that I had done in my own time. Discussed that and then interview was over. bout 70mins. Didn't get an offer but had strange feedback that it "felt like i was pre prepared"? Who doesn't prepare for an interview?!

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) in April 2018.

    It was a two-stage interview process that was suitably challenging for the role I was going for. Everyone was really warm and friendly and I was made to feel welcome from the moment I walked through the door.

    IT Technical Services Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) (Staines, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    quite informal, more of a chat than an interview. Hitachi Capital employ people, people can be trained, so the interview is more about the person than their experience and qualifications. I cam away thinking that I didn't get to tell them about all my achievements and strengths. I still got offered the job!

    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Newbury, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) (Newbury, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Very 'chilled out' approach to interviewing which is very welcome.
      Consistent interviewing method.
    Extremely thorough set of questions that really get to know you and what you can do.
    Touching in the above, the company has 7 or 8 overriding question arches with a further set of questions within, this enables the interviewers to tailor the interview for the candidate.
    The interview is well spaced out for time to ensure that you have plenty of time for questions.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) (Newbury, England) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an agent and had an initial telephone conversation with them. I then was invited for a face to face interview with the Director of the department and an HR person. Interview went very well and questions were competency based. I then was invited for a second interview with the Manager of the department for more competency based questions but also questions around Hitachi values. Also very positive feeling. Unfortunately the company did not do an offer in the end and hired someone internally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hitachi Capital (UK) (Staines, England) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Asked a lot of pre-planned generic questions that where clearly trying to get deep "insights" about me. Kudos to the two interviewers however. Made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. They were extremely nice, and upon reflection, it genuinely looked like a great place to work at. I didn't get an offer in the end.
