    Head of Training - North America Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at RICS (New York, NY (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Online form , followed by one phone screen then a video link interview with two stakeholders in New York. There was a real sense of urgency around getting the interview scheduled, and the interviewers stressed they would be getting back to candidates with feedback very quickly. This did not happen, more than two weeks passed, I then reached out to the recruiter who replied that she thought someone had already gotten back to me and they would not be going forward with my candidacy, no other feedback was given (or available apparently).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RICS (Birmingham, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online, after a few DAYS I received an email requesting me tk complete some tests which were very easy. I was then emailed to inform me that I had passed the test and to attend an interview but no one rang me at all throughout this process which was a bit odd. I then attended an interview where the same old questions were asked about what I know about the company, the role and some competency based questions. The people interviewing me lead me to believe that they were impressed with the research I had done on the RICS. I was then left alone to complete a numeracy test which was very easy along with an email reply which I had to write on another sheet of paper. I asked the women to repeat some of the competency questions which I guess didn't go down too well. Either way someone did get back to me as promised but again by email informing me that I was unsuccessful. I didn't raise any objections to the very low pay during the interview for obvious reasons but it seems that they have very high expectations here during their interviews. Throughout the interview both women kept constantly smirking at me when I gave replies to their questions as if it was all a big joke to them.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RICS.

    Interview

    Telephone interview (30 mins) > Online psychometric test (an hour)> case study test (an hour)> face to face interview with two panels (1.5 hours). The case study was challenging as the question and materials provided were a little confusing. Questions during the interview were very good. They gave very good questions which all seemed very relevant. The hiring manager was willing to give feedback after the interview.

    Editor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at RICS (London, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online for a vacancy that was withdrawn after I had submitted my CV and was not actually advertised on the careers section of the company’s website. The process took several days.

    Polite and relaxed interview with one manager. General lengthy discussion about the role and the department before being asked specifics about my experience in relation to the role, despite the submission of a detailed CV. It was claimed that the recruitment process, which was involving many applicants, would require a second interview. This was where my “no-offer” came from, given there was no second interview.

    I can’t really fault how this interview was actually conducted on the day in terms of being done in a friendly manner, but it came across as a flawed and poorly-executed recruitment process, which was reinforced by the feedback where a few of the identified shortfalls in experience were actually new or niche requirements not listed in the original job advertisement that I had responded to. As a result, the interview came across as more of a sifting exercise, as would normally be done before an applicant is called in, and was thus seen as a waste of this applicant's time and expense attending. One could thus assume that the second interview was either for approval of the selected candidate or the actual interview for the role.
