I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Howdens Joinery

Interview

Very loose. Focussed on 'fit' only. Was clear that role expectations / authority were not clear, especially in relation to line manager. On the plus side, it was positive, informal, straight forward.

Interview

Simple interview with open and honest questions that enable you to showcase your talents and abilities that are relative to the role on offer that you’ve applied for. I can’t think of more than 30 words to write so I guess I’ll just waffle on until I’ve hit the minimum 30 word targets

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Howdens Joinery in Nov 2020

Interview

Face to Face interview, went through two rounds. First one was standard interview competency questions, the second one was based around a presentation I was asked to prepare on what I would look to achieve in the role. One of the interviewers Inn the second round looked disinterested from the start, showing no signs of warmth or emotion. I wasn't successful in getting the role, but despite multiple requests (and multiple promises of "yes it's coming") was given no feedback of why, or how I could have performed better in the interview. Given the effort I had gone to in the process, that's the least i would have expected.

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Howdens Joinery (Widnes, England) in Aug 2017

Interview

it was basically the most very long winded, wasted time experience ever. Given that it was for an apprenticeship role i thought it would have been a lot less of a process but it deemed to be quite the opposite and in the end it seemed like, if you knew someone there, only then would you get the job.
