    Junior Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Modulr (Glasgow, Scotland) in December 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted to arrange an interview which I did. Before the interview I spent the whole day prior researching the company and preparing of course. I had emailed with a query but hadn't heard back. On the day at the arranged interview time I sat waiting for the call and it never came. I sent an email and received no reply. I called the number on the email and got no answer. After an hour, I contacted the careers team through the company website. A number of hours later I was informed by them that the person I had been in contact with was actually off work today and had just failed to inform me! Lovely. I waited for them to contact me to apologise and rearrange but this never happened.
    5 days later I finally received an email. This did not acknowledge the previous situation or in fact even reference it at all - in fact it was actually just a complete replica of the first email I had been sent to arrange an interview. Like nothing had happened and one hadn't already been arranged prior. However, I chose to give the benefit of the doubt and rebooked the interview. Thankfully, this time they called and this was just a quick 10-minute screening interview with only a few questions. Afterwards, I received an email to say they'd be progressing me to the next stage which was an interview with the customer success lead, who I would be reporting to in the role. I arranged this interview and they called as planned. It was clearly not prepared for as they only asked a few questions so we moved on to my questions which I had many of. They spoke with a lot of jargon when answering and used very technical terms so it wasn't particularly easy to follow or understand. The interview had been scheduled for 30 minutes and after exactly 30 minutes whilst I was mid question they completely cut me off and said actually I have to go I have another call now thanks bye. And hung up! There was no mention of the next stages or when they'd be in touch or even a moment for me to briefly ask those before they rudely cut the conversation off and didn't even offer to continue another time. Don't get me wrong, I completely understand having a busy schedule but I think it's quite poor to arrange another call directly after an interview as of course they normally take longer than expected when done properly, and it clearly proved where their priorities lay.
    I sent an email to the person I had spoken to initially to explain that the call had been cut short and therefore ask what the process was from here and when I could expect to hear from them and they said they was meeting with my interviewer the following day and so would be able to pass on feedback and next steps information then. That was 6 weeks ago and despite sending two more emails since then, I have not heard A THING from this company with a single shred of information since!

    Absolutely horrendous company. No respect whatsoever for anyone interviewing for them, poor procedures and communication and complete disregard of candidates without even informing them of anything. I should have known from the first interaction when stood up for an interview with no explanation or apology!

    There is a reason why so many of the reviews are awful - and that's because they are true.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Modulr (Edinburgh, Scotland) in November 2020.

    Interview

    Highly unprofessional! Applied online, got an email asking me to book a slot for the pre-screening interview, emailed back with the date and time, never got the call, even after emailing again asking for what happened. Saw all the negative reviews, but I was ready to give the benefit of the doubt.

    Not too difficult. But, when they told me I didn't get the job, they offered to give feedback. I responded to their email and never heard anything back ever since. Really bad.

    Senior Compliance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Modulr (London, England) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Interviewed by HR on the phone. Followed by an interview with Head of Compliance on the phone. I was invited for a face to face with HOCompliance, CRO and Head of Legal. I struggled with the inconsistent messages from HR, at times my emails where never responded to which I noticed was a trend on glass door. HR lady was lovely once I spoke to her, but the delayed responses meant that I was prepared and waiting for the call for the second interview which never took place because my email hadn't been replied. I then had to delay other plans so that I could reschedule it.

    I struggled with the limited feedback considering the effort I put in to prepare for a very intense 2 hour interview. I prepared a presentation, no feedback given for that. I emailed HR several times to which I got a generic response. I would have benefited from a detailed account of why I was unsuited to the role.

    Graduate Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edinburgh, Scotland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Modulr (Edinburgh, Scotland) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The interview had 4 stages - online application, HR phone interview (~ 30min ), online coding challenge (2hours) and a final stage assessment centre (9AM-3PM). The whole process was very fast for a grad scheme- all stages took less than 2 months. Modulr stayed in touch throughout the whole process with fast responses and a genuine interest to support the candidates in their application. The assessment centre was incredibly relaxed and it was clear that this was done so that everyone is calm enough to do their best in the actual tasks. The day felt like a two-sided process too, where we getting to know them was just as important. It was my best experience with any grad-scheme application process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Modulr (Edinburgh, Scotland) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online through posting my CV on their website for the role, and after a week was put in touch with a contact from a hiring agency employed by Modulr, who called me for a phone interview and then sent a technical test on Hackerrank. A couple days after this, I received a phone call to say I was accepted for the assessment centre in a few weeks.

    The assessment centre took a full day and included interviews, a group assessment and a tour of the office. The interviews themselves were a bit repetitive and less technical based, and rather more experience-focused. Overall a bit long, but in-depth. In the same week, I was called to say that I received an offer.
