Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England) in Mar 2018

Interview

The interview process was three stages, which involved a huge amount of travel, around 14 hours of driving in total. There was a 2 hour online test too. A PowerPoint presentation was required at the 2nd and final stage. An additional company director asked to sit in on the final interview and my presentation, about 5 minutes prior to me starting. This was following my 5 hour drive to the offices in Warrington. The management team interviewing me were very much focused on me having a young baby and this effecting my ability to perform in the role, rather than my capabilities and relevant skills and experience.

Interview Questions
  • Why did I relocate to Somerset from Sussex, with no family there to support me with childcare.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England)

Interview

Chaotic. 1st stage to complete on line psychometric testing before attending face to face interview in Warrington lasting an hour. Was then asked to prepare detailed presentation to give to three managers at second face to face interview but after keeping me waiting over half an hour only one turned up and had to do presentation on my laptop in a hotel bar. Was then invited to a third stage on site - kept me waiting over an hour for a 30 minute meet and greet. Totally unprofessional and waste of my time. Wouldn't have accepted anyway - It took them 3 stages to decide I wasn't committed!!

I applied online. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England) in Dec 2017

Interview

skype interview, face to face interview with a member of HR, another face to face interview with an executive then what was supposed to be a powerpoint presentation (which never occurred)

Interview Questions
  • I got to the third and final interview stage with the company for which I had to prepare a presentaion talking about myself, how I would fit into the company and what I know about them. Previously I had a successful skype interview and a face to face interview where I impressed and was told to keep doing what i'm doing. So at this final interview stage I had prepared a presentaion about the company and I conducted additional research (as any normal person would), only to be told after a brief chat with an executive before I was supposed to do my presentation, that they wouldn't be taking my application further. Bare in mind this is just before I was supposed to do my presentation that I had prepared and had rehearsed for a considerable amount of time. I'm not angry/annoyed that I didn't get on to the graduate programme, because if i'd have been given the opportunity and they didn't think i'd be suited to it then I would say 'ok fair enough', i'm fuming at the fact that they wouldn't even let me conduct my presentation that they ask all graduates to make as part of the interview process to get onto the LIFT programme. When he was telling me why I hadn't got any further he almost seemed to take pleasure in telling me he'd done the same to over half the other graduates at this stage and didn't allow them to present either. As a whole this tells me the company is completely unprofessional, that their interview process is ridiculously flawed and that the executive who gave me my final interview is a horrible little man who takes pleasure in other people's failure due to his own lack of knowledge around how an interview should work.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England) in Nov 2017

Interview

I was called on the phone by a recruiter asking me whether I would be interested in considering the LIFT program provided by IESA. When I gave him a positive answer, he asked me some questions regarding my experience (educational background, personal and professional experience, etc.). Then, he asked me why I would join the LIFT program. What was my motivation behind it? How would I define profit and loss? The final question/request was bizarre. Give me a sentence that comes to your mind (even if it does not make sense) that must include either blue or green in it. This would show an assessor how quickly I think. After providing all the requested info (taking around 20 - 25 minutes), he asked me when I would like to book an appointment for an interview in Warrington. The interview has taken place at the Centre (Birchwood Park, Warrington). I was not in the company's office though; the place was a canteen for the employees working around. This might sound to you amateurish, but the HR representatives I met were very professional. Probably they did not have the ability to use their office on that particular day. Talking to a lady from IESA's HR staff for around 40 minutes, she said that she was happy to proceed with the next step - I to be interviewed by the head of the HR herself. As a surprise, she said it should have been performed right away. I sat at a different table (a few tables away from the table I was interviewed) in the canteen, and after 10 minutes the other lady came and started with her questions. Both of them mainly asked about my past, my experience, my motivations, my ambitions, and so on. The final few questions they asked me were what I did know about IESA as a business, and what did I know about the LIFT program.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about yourself going through the years starting from year 4.

I applied online. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England) in Jul 2017

Interview

Phone interview, 1st interview with H.R. 2nd interview with CEO. Don't waste your time. The CEO is rude and asks totally inappropriate questions. Was late to the interview. The impression he gave was so bad I would have refused to work for him, even if I had been offered a job here. Swerve at all costs.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England)

Interview

3 stage interview. 1st stage -by telephone, by in-house recruitment agency, to review experience and potential suitability (30mins). 2nd stage - face to face with the Head of Department - again discussing work history, example of successes. Giving a broad brush overview of the company and clients. (45-60mins). 3rd stage - face to face with Head of Department and CEO. Consisting of the candidate a 10-15 minute presentation on why your right for the role. This is somewhat grueling. IESA will take this as opportunity to ask (what some may feel are personal questions) in order to ascertain your grit and suitability for the role. Delving into what made you, how you react in situations, what you would do differently if you had opportunity. if you have brothers, sisters. What your upbringing was like - did you have to work for things you wanted /needed or did you have easy. Prompt decision making and offer provided following the process.

Interview Questions
  • What was your family upbringing like, do you have siblings.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at IESA (Warrington, England)

Interview

Phone interview from agency Face2Face from agency Face2Face company position Online testing Presentation to board CEO interview Really poor overall process. Agency didnt ask any relevent experience Q's, seemed to explore my opinion on working late, long hours and unreasonable bosses. Online testing was standard F2F with Snr Mgmt and presentations were poorly organised my company, they were late for the interviews, provided a poor impression of the workplace, evaded Q's such as culture, reason for open position, etc. CEO interview was bizzare and was extremely late for it and made me want to leave as it is unprofessional. He asked some very inappropriate and illegal Q's. Although I wasnt bothered by them, it was clear, he either didnt know the boundary or didnt care for it. Both in my opinion are not acceptable. They didnt barter with salary either, I asked over the odds and they said yes, almost seemed desperate to get me.
