    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madrid (Spain)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at International Airlines Group (Madrid (Spain)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me in LinkedIn. They called me several times to offer me 2 different positions in IAG Tech. For both, I had interviews with the managers. For one position, the recruiter called me several times to inform me that I was one of the finalist (the decision was between 3 persons), and I never hear from them.
    I tried to reach them but I never received a response.

    Procurement Category Lead Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at International Airlines Group (Hounslow, England) in March 2019.

    Interview

    It lasted all of 55 minutes from Hello to Goodbye, during which introductions were made, the structure of the interview was explained and an overview of the Role was given. We then went into the actual interview by both the Hiring Manager and the Human Resource partner. I was asked between 15-20 questions by both of them on which I was expected to reply using the STAR method, which I did.
    Questions were very targeted from a technical point of view, but very broad from a HR point of view. They heavily focused on Politics within a Company and how I address them, which is a good indication of their culture and working environment. At the end I was given 5 mins to ask my own questions.
    Overall, I found the interview very narrow-oriented, superficial and very short for its purposes; 55 mins end-to-end is not enough for a candidate to give a good understanding of their expertise/skills and definitely not enough for them to understand what the Company/people/working environment is like. This I fed back to the external recruiter right after the interview.
    IAG’s feedback was that my replies “lacked depth”, which I found unacceptable based on the above and on the fact I strictly followed the STAR aporoach for ca. 20 questions within a net time of max. 50 mins.
    I’ve previously been interviewed by a similar size/scale Company and their assessment took a full 8-hr day, following which I was made an offer.
    IAG should definitely revisit their interview processes.
