    Sales Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Quintessential Brands Group (Bristol, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Shambles from start to finish. Right hand didn't know what the left was doing. First interview with Sales Director in Bristol, heard nothing for 2 months and assumed going nowhere. Second interview with a recruitment consultant in London, which was a month ago and I have heard nothing, which isn't surprising. Professional courtesy does not appear to exist a QB. Interviews are unstructured and give the impression of a leaderless business.

    Office Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quintessential Brands Group (London, England) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Interview was in meeting room at a regional HQ. What I saw of the offices made it seem like quite a nice place to work - good reception and staff areas.

    Interviewer was quite young and possibly didn't have much experience - refused to tell me the salary and terms.

    It's been over a month now and I haven't heard back, which I think is poor. I think it's easy to send an email saying 'you're not what we were looking for'.

    Based on the interview, and lack of courtesy, I expect I'll decline any offers that might materialise.

    Trade Marketing Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Quintessential Brands Group (London, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Unfortunately, after spending a great deal of time preparing a presentation on an on-trade strategy (portolio-wide) for the EOY period, flying from abroad especially to present this to the Brand Equity Manager, and having a really positive vibe about the role after completing every stage of interview, nearly 5 months later I am still yet to hear a response - positive or negative - from Marblehead.

    After flying in from abroad and being told of the urgency to fill the role, and the short time it would take them to get back to me, weeks and then months went by, my calls and emails to the company were unanswered, and my request for feedback on why I didn't get the position (clearly the case) were simply ignored.

    I found out via a friend who had applied for the same role via a recruiter that the position was no longer available, and that the business was going under a restructure due to some top line management changes., and that it would be made more senior in the near future.

    This is a difficult position for a company to be in, but an absolute lack of respect to those who applied to not explain this and simply ignore a direct email asking for feedback. Not only did I receive no feedback on my interview, my presentation, my attitude, I also received no reason or explanation for this, only radio silence. I am still waiting to hear from them after all of this time.

    Unprofessional communication from start to finish from a business that clearly does not value its applicants. A blessing in disguise some might say that my calls and emails were unanswered? Take care before applying.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Quintessential Brands Group.

    Interview

    Got the initial interview through a recruitment consultant. CV was sent over to see if I was of interest & requested for an interview
    Went for an interview in their London offices- lasted around 1 hour
    Even though my CV detailed I didn't have drinks experience, this was obviously essential for them
