    Health and Safety Advisor Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Inchcape (Birmingham, England) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Applying for a new role is always daunting but going through a recruitment process during the current COVID-19 crisis was always going to be strange. Right from the start the communication from the recruitment team was great, I knew exactly what was going on at each stage.
    The format of video conferencing first interview and socially distance final interview was well organised and I felt safe and comfortable throughout the process.
    I was lucky enough to be successful in my application and have now started with the company. This in itself was very strange, usually busy offices were empty and introductions were conducted via video calls. Even though management and colleagues were not in the office, I was welcomed warmly and everyone made an extra effort to introduce themselves.

    Tax Assistant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Inchcape (London, England) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Bit lengthy. Spent majority of time talking about the company rather than my skills and what I would be capable of. Head of tax seemed drained, from what I gather there isn’t much of a work life balance. HR dominated the interview. Was awful!

    Had to wait couple of weeks for feedback, they came back to my recruiter with a ‘no’ but refused to provide ANY feedback. Very unprofessional.

    Regional Digital Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Inchcape.

    Interview

    It took 2 months to arrange the first round interview because the general manager and later the director had no clue what they wanted with the role. When the interview took place, it was a general questioning of background, proficiency in software, and technical skills. In the end, they passed over me because they wanted someone who was not Asian-American (director is Asian-American) and willing to spend extra budget to hire a local or a Singaporean to fill the role.

    They then referred to a more local role and it turned out that did not work out since I "was not local enough".

    Sales Administrator Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Inchcape (Birmingham, England) in April 2016.

    Interview

    They didn't really care if I had the right skills to do the job as long as my values mirrored their values. Think they were more concerned with character than skill level.
