    Employee Relations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mitie.

    Interview

    Short screening call from the recruiter followed by an on-site face to face interview. both of which were accomodating and professional. However, following on from this I have yet to receive any kind of update or feedback following the interview despite chasing the recruiter. Highly unprofessional behaviour.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mitie (Leeds, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Unprofessional and very poorly managed. If you are thinking of attending an interview, expect to be messed around at your expense.

    Interviews are arranged and the cancelled at the last minute because senior management "forgot".

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mitie (London, England) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The interview is more like a conversation, which was asked simple questions like previous experiences and how to handle a difficult situation. The interviewer was the head of front office and it took about one hour.

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mitie (London, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Mitie who arranged an interview, their positive attitude was infectious.

    On the interview day I felt like I was violated, I know that's a strong term and hence I have used it. Either the interviewer didn't like me or that is the working culture there.

    Normally a good technique for interview is to use the STAR method, however I was quizzed on just me presenting the background/scenario without being able to further develop my answer before moving onto the next question. When I was responding to a question I was asked, "are you sure?" as if what I was saying was a lie, it was a really hostile interview technique to the point I felt like walking out. I have had interviews since with offers of employment and it has been a night and day experience. To top it off the feedback given was that I didn't develop my answers enough, but how could I develop my answers if I was questioned at the background stage and then moved onto the next question.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Mitie in April 2018.

    Interview

    Test and interview. They selected someone internally prior to my external interview with them. I knew they had no intention of giving me a fair interview when they began rushing through questions. Outcome - they selected someone internally to begin with.

    Question - why bother interviewing me if they’ve already selected their candidate?
