    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Horley, Surrey, South East England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at SGN (Horley, Surrey, South East England, England) in April 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was well communicated and involved 3 stages; following my application I was invited to have a telephone interview (around 20 minutes) where I was asked about my interest in the role and relevant experience. I was then invited for a face to face the following week with 2 members of the team where we discussed my background and experience in more detail. I was told more about the role and we had an informal discussion around what I felt I could offer. Shortly after I received a phone call where I was informed that I had been shortlisted for a final interview that would involve a presentation. I had plenty of time to prepare my presentation and the expectations were communicated to me in advance. My final interview was held at the offices and was with 2 managers in the team, lasting around 1 hour. They covered some competency based questions and it was very focused on suitability and new ideas. I was also given an opportunity to ask more about the team and general expectations and my questions were all answered open and honestly. I was then given a quick tour of the office so that I could see the working environment. I was told I would hear back the next working day however was called the same afternoon and offered the position.

    Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at SGN (Maidstone, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Consulted through third party recruitment advisor who had both enthusiasm and passion about her work. Very good experience form the recruiting agency.
    Went for the interview with SGN representative who's attitude wasn't appropriate i.e lack of energy, went through set questionnaire without explaining about the role. Its seems like we were there to waste each other’s time.
    Feedback was even worst, didn't had experience with in construction industry however I haven't used the word single time on my CV. Pretty frustrating to know.
    Impression was to get the audit box ticked in terms of equal opportunity employer(I doubt it).
