    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sue Ryder (London, England) in January 2016.

    Interview

    very unorganized, kept waiting on 1st interview, questions were scripted and set in stone and interviewers wouldn't deviate from their script. Vague answers to job responsibilities and felt even they didn't want to be in their role - slightly unprofessional -2nd interview was rushed with lots of activities to get through, some times were cut short and tasks seemed unrelated to role advertised.
