    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Towergate Insurance (London, England) in January 2011.

    Interview

    General discussion with Board member who was way out of his depth and so did not know what to ask or how to respond to my questions. He was unable to explain how any of the key performance targets were formulated or measured, or indeed how remuneration was tied to performance.

    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Towergate Insurance in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very disappointed - went for two interviews and never received any sort of feedback, not even confirming whether or not an offer would be made despite being assured that I would receive feedback within a week. No phone call, no e-mail, no text. This is despite travelling to the offices in central London and then attending a second interview at the Kent offices.

    Very poor service overall.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Towergate Insurance (Manchester, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    basic question re customer service and team management. Previous experience etc. Previous insurance experience was not essential but team management was, which I have. People interviewing seemed to want someone in asap as this project was a new start up and they advised that board were pushing to get the project live sooner than originally planned.
