    Telemarketing Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I came to the interview dressed smartly only to find the two people interviewing me were dressed like it was causal Friday. First impressions count and this doesn't create a professional look for the company. It seemed to me that they couldn't be bothered to make the effort. The interview itself was ok nothing too difficult but the two people came across like they didn't know what they were talking about. My mind was made up that I wouldn't be taking the job even if it was offered to me. I'm still waiting to find out the outcome as no one has bothered to get back to me. Poor experience I wouldn't waste my mind.

    14 Jul 2017 – Talent Attraction Advisor

    Hi, Thanks for taking the time to interview with us - we really appreciate you giving us your time like this. One of the great things about Intercity Technology is that we don't hold people to strict dress codes and have a 'smart casual' dress policy in all of our offices. That being said, It might be a good idea for us to let candidates know this before their interview as the last thing we want to do is make you uncomfortable. I can assure you that our hiring managers are held to the highest of standards and would definitely know what they were talking about! I am concerned about no one getting back to you as that is not how we want to be treating our candidates. If you could contact me via careers@intercity.technology and I can chase this up for you.

    Accounts Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Intercity Technology (Birmingham, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted CV online and was swiftly invited to an interview within a couple of days. The hiring process involves an initial interview by HR (perhaps to see if the candidate will fit into the culture), thereafter if successful you will be invited to complete an online psychometric test, if successful you will be invited to a final interview with someone from the Finance team to ask about job specific questions and to see if you can actually do the role.

    Business Development Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Intercity Technology (Horwich, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Initial telephone interview followed up by two face to face, the second of which included a presentation. Appalling interview manner, constant interruptions during the presentation to criticise content. Never had the courtesy of a response despite going through a 3 stage selection process. This was being handled directly by the company and not via a recruitment agency. A seemingly terrible company with arrogance beyond belief.

    Interview Questions

    Hi, I am so sorry you have had such a negative experience whilst interviewing for us. Please could you send more details to careers@intercity.technology so that I can look in to this for you. The situation you have described is not how we want to be treating candidates so I need to look in to why this occurred. Obviously, I cannot change your experience now but I would like the chance to discuss this with you and personally express my apologies. Hopefully we can speak soon.

    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    I received a call from the HR department and they wanted to talk money right off the bat. I tried to say neutral to see what they had to offer. They required a Senior Engineer with his own car and knowing a wide range of technology nearly everything under the sun for a miserly 34k. At that point I kindly ended the phonecall as the money was well below market rate and the shopping list was unrealistic for the pay offered. Alarm bells started ring!!

    Many thanks for your comments. The role you applied for was not a senior role, hence the question around salary expectations.

    Graduate Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Intercity Technology (Birmingham, England) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Received email from Pareto detailing the company's interest and invitation to a phone interview.
    Basic questions such as personal interests and other academic/career achievements, followed by questions asking what makes a sales person great

    Once through the phone interview, I was invited to an assessment day along with around 40 other candidates. The assessment day was run by Pareto and held at the Intercity office. You're encouraged to ask questions to show interest. Next, you'll participate in group activities to show your qualities as a sales person. After these activities, you'll have to give a presentation about "Why I would be a great salesman and why Intercity should choose me?" to the Pareto representatives in a 1-1 environment.

    Due to the number of candidates that day, the assessment day did not finish until around 5/6.
