    Partnership Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McLaren Group (New York, NY (US)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Several phone screens, multiple phone interviews and in person, informal interview. Various questions were asked, some high level some detailed regarding the industry and background of the candidate. Overall an underwhelming approach to interviewing.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Passed the first interview but decided to stop pursuing the internship before the second interview. The recruiter was unprofessional and first asked me to set up a time for an interview. However, he kept changing my interview time slot without consulting me. Finally, after changing my interview time slot twice, no one showed up to the interview! They low ball you and don't respect your time, even if you're potentially a worthy candidate. I decided to stop emailing the recruiter after this and accept an offer elsewhere.

    Change Control Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McLaren Group (Woking, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I actually applied for a different role but that role was no longer available. the recruiter then sent me this role (change control coordinator). it was a few emails followed by interview at mclaren technology center.
    The interview itself didnt go well. i had two people interviewing me and they both didnt look interested at all in me. one of the guys left his phone on the table and it constantly was buzzing. surely he should have put it on silent and in his pocket. the same guy just looked at me with no emotion for 1st half of interview and then finally started to ask me questions. it was a bit creepy. the main interviewer was a head of department and he kept asking me the same question but in different ways. felt like he was trying to catch me out. body language of them both dropped massively when they realised i wasnt the right fit. wierdly he told me as i am a newbie i wont get a parking space.

    if travelling by train, keep a look out for the bus times to get to mclaren. or use their shuttle bus (which wasnt mentioned to me). also to actually get inside mclaren itself it is a long-ish walk like a maze so leave yourself plenty of time before the interview starts. also to mclaren, try to leave a glass of water on the table for everyone.
    and i didnt find it professional when this head of department swore in the interview. he didnt swear at me, but said the f word in a sentence.
