    UI Developer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Immediate Media Company (London, England) in November 2019.

    Interview

    A total waste of my time.

    I did a two-hour technical test for the role, and never heard anything back. I chased a number of times the agency called Premier Digital who managed the process with Intermediate Media, but heard nothing.

    The test was completed and accepted, I spent time on a number of calls with the agency mentioned, researched into Intermediate Media, did the long technical test, chased about it, and heard absolutely nothing. What a complete waste of my time.

    Stay away from this company, I'm sure they'll waste your time too.

    Immediate Media Company Response

    6 Dec 2019

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re really sorry you had this experience and have looked into our processes as a result. We’ve worked with Premier Media for a number of years on our technology roles and we’ve always had a good experience with them. We’ve been hiring a number of people recently and so apologies our process fell down here with you. We really don’t want people to have a similar experience so are keen to understand what happened in some more detail. If you’d like to share this, please get in touch with Leanne Winocour from the recruitment team.

    Receptionist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Immediate Media Company (Bristol, England) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Sat in a meeting room with the interviewer and a drink, she had a list of questions in front of her, but was very friendly and we frequently went off topic and ended up just chatting. For the second interview it was the first interviewer with an HR representative, asking the same questions.

    H R Administrator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Immediate Media Company (Hammersmith, England) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I would say it was a waste of time because they didn't know I was supposed to interview with them so they came very late and ended up doing a very quick one! Also I was told that I was too bubbly but surely it's a media company?

    Writer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Immediate Media Company (London, England) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There was two interviews, one with two online editors, which was just a general chit-chat about what TV I like - very important as the role was as a writer in on demand TV - and my previous experience in the industry. It was quite relaxed and informal, and didn't involve any real testing. The second was just a size-up from the editor, who then gave the go ahead for them to hire me. I'm pretty sure that no one else had gotten to this stage.
