    Security Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Manchester Airports Group.

    Interview

    Online application form submission,
    Telephone screening,
    Case study group presentation,
    Behavior and value based interview,

    Poor communication throughout the process.
    Dates given for contact regarding telephone screening and interview preparation were not adhered to with no explanation given. Both recruiting manager and MAG HR department did not answer e mails when i tried to chase up.
    There were 5 members of management involved in the process, not one of them introduced themselves at any point!
    Interview was quite a lifeless event, no icebreaker no option to ask any questions, interviewer kept looking at his watch as though he had to be somewhere else.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Manchester Airports Group (Manchester, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Interview and checking of documents, ID, work history, etc Interviewed with group of other people all allocated different time slots. New system of interview questions used all based on STAR technique. You need to be able to discuss a specific situation/task and how you dealt with it in order to demonstrate skills required for the job. They go to great lengths to make sure the interview environment is relaxed and friendly. Everyone who was interviewed alongside me looked supremely confident but be in no doubt they are just as nervous as you inside!
