    Event Steward Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hull, England
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Showsec (Hull, England) in March 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and after having entered info about previous employment etc, I was invited in for an interview at the Bonus Arena. There was a small group of us and a supervisor gave us a quick talk about what would be expected in the job and what uniform we needed. This was all before we were individually interviewed. The interview itself only lasted about 5 mins so it just felt like a formality. They asked fairly standard questions such as 'What are your strengths/weaknesses?' and 'What previous experiences might help you in this job?'

    Interview Questions

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Showsec (Manchester, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Ran late. Kept waiting 20 minutes in a small cramped room with many other candidates after fighting rush hour traffic across Cheetham Hill. Staff quite patronising and blase. Staff spent more time talking about how 2 of the interviewers were married than anything professional, relevant or useful.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Showsec in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few hours I had received an email to say my application has been shortlisted and they will contact me for an interview date. After 4 days I received another email informing me to book the interview slot. Speaking to recruitment on the phone they were able to give me the dates and times available to choose from (within 2 weeks) however I informed them I would be on holiday during that time and they accommodated this for the week after I got back. I arrived at the interview centre and sat in a room with a few other people. It consisted of a short 20 minute presentation (staff informing you of everything 'Showsec', scanning of documents, a picture and then individually we were taken for a quick casual interview consisting of around 5 questions(which were then to be rated out of 5). At the interview I was then informed I would receive the results of the day within 10 days, a week later I was told my interview was successful.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Showsec.

    Interview

    Took quite a long time to set up the interview due to difficulty with location. Interview was somewhat unprofessional with both candidates within earshot of each other but interviewers were polite and mostly professional for the job on offer.
    Interview consisted of 5 questions rated 1-5 based on responses nothing too difficult if you are prepared or can come up with something on the spot.
