Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society

Interview

Typical 2 stage interview based on scenarios and competency questions. The second stage interview involved preparing a 'solution' to a problem that was set by the interviewing team. The problem itself appeared to be a direct extract from their overall selling strategy so drawing attention to how any proposed solution would be impacted by culture, internal power plays and capabilities gap was not positively received.

They asked many questions related to be a financial advisor, where was not appropriate to the applied job. The questions were out of expectations for the job applied. Very unpleasant interview session.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Skipton, England) in Feb 2021

Interview

First had a telephone interview which lasted about 15 minutes, just going through what I knew about the company, previous work experience and why I’d be a good fit for the role. Was accepted onto the next stage which was a Microsoft teams interview. First part was a sort of ‘tour’ and description of what we’d be doing, and then a role play exercise which was relevant and straightforward. Pretending to sell a phone contract to a customer. Next there was a strength-based interview which I enjoyed. Got a call the next day saying I’d been successful.

A tick box exercise, with no feedback provided after receipt of a generic rejection email, despite a polite request. Unacceptable from an interviewer at Director level. If someone invests their time and effort in researching and attending an interview, please spend five minutes of your time explaining why they were rejected.

Interview Questions

I applied online. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Skipton, England) in Apr 2019

Interview

Telephone interview. Asked basic questions about the company and the role. Asked for a 5 year employment history. Woman seemed professional and friendly. However when it came to talking about 2 years unemployed due to ill health, that’s when her demeanour changed. They don’t employ disabled people so don’t apply if you are.
