    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Venatrix (London, England) in February 2018.

    Interview

    We had a group powwow in the morning to illuminate just how important certain competencies were to the roles we would be given opportunities to work for, before group exercises to showcase our talent. In the afternoon, we were interviewed individually, to really discover where the next step would be most relevant.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Venatrix in October 2017.

    Interview

    I sent off a CV for the role of account manager, and they called me and asked me a few questions. Then they told me that I had made it to the next stage in the process whilst I was still on the phone. I was happy about this until they told me I would have to attend one their centres for an assessment, where they would then suggest sales jobs I might like. I dislike these internal assessment centres as they do not usually focus on the job the candidates apply for but rather on giving the candidate any which role in order to boost their quotas.

    Graduate Student Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Venatrix (London, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    One of Venatrix’s agent calls you and has a discussion with you. If you’re good, you go to the next level which is a phone interview.
    You’re interviewed on basic questions which after a few interviews you’re very used to.
    If you succeed they invite to an Assessment day in Central London, they congratulate you because ‘’ 800 hundred applies, you’re in the 20 selected ‘’

    The Assessment day is supposed to last from 10 AM to 4 PM, which can appear like very long.
    The day begins with an open question about Sales, so you better speak to show that you’re here.
    Then begin the group tasks, which is fun but too short especially when demonstrating, regarding the voluntary attitude of the board of directors.

    After this and around 12:30AM they separate the group in two and if you haven’t been good (my case), you’re being nicely told to go home, without any direct explanation.

    So to sum up, I would say that if you’ve never done an assessment day, you should do it. But be prepared to be over-enthusiastic for the few moments when you can talk.
    I think that the time allowed or taken isn’t at all sufficient to prove your quality.

    Also, at first you’re told that you earned your place from 800 people and during the day, this goes down to 500, and then to even less.
    This is really sad because the whole process looks like Venatrix cares a lot about their partner company (that’s great) but not at all about what really matters for the graduate.
    On the 20 graduates, we were 7 or 8 international. 6 of us were told to go home at noontime... If the client is looking for purely English speakers, why inviting us?

    If you’re very very enthusiastic, great speaker in public and have an entire day to offer, then that’s for you! Otherwise, be careful not to waste time! Don’t lose confidence if you’re sent off at noon, you have skills and will get your job!

    Sales Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Venatrix (London, England) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Extensive telephone interview in which the recruitment company employee offered me an invite to the next process of interview. A group interview where he said that he and Darktrace would be present. He asked to write send him a Research document on Darktrace, which i completed to a high standard. He then called to provide me with further information about the day on interview and how i should present myself. Everything was positive until the day of interview. Dark trace and the man I spoke to from Venatrix was not there and everybody who attended was applying for a job located in France with a completely different salary. Some candidates had known about the company for weeks, a company which I hadn't heard about once. I looked clueless and lost when they asked me why I wanted to work for the company present and what attracted me to apply for them. It was humiliating. I would also like to state that Venatrix called me and asked me to attend, the least they could have done was inform m of the correct company. A complete waste of time.

    Sales Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chelsea, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Venatrix (Chelsea, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Got the call up to attend the assessment centre and admittedly I was a bit sceptical at first but decided to attend as any interview experience is good experience as a graduate!

    Laura was great on the phone to prepare me for the day with tips and answering any questions i had. The actual assessment centre starts off with very short group exercises which very quickly leave behind any less enthusiastic or quiet individuals unable to shine in a short space of time. After the first cut there is a face to face interview stage, followed by the final cut.

    Once accepted, i began with Elaine coaching me for my interviews. She was fantastic and gave invaluable advice. Very straight talking and seriously good at her job.

    Next Mackenzie took over my interview preparation and again I had great advice and preparation for my interviews. Really went the extra mile, even doing mock interview role play at some points! Our final interview prep really did make the difference in getting the job offer and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mackenzie.

    Overall I would recommend going to the assessment day if you get the call

    Sale Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Venatrix (London, England) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Pros of the group interview/ presentation were that it's beneficial to connect with the people that are there, after the interview itself I went with a few for coffee with a few of the team and we got to know eachother more.
    It shows who can work well within a team and present ideas and who can't.
    It helps you to build confidence when talking infront of a team.
    You learn ways in which you can sell yourself better.

    Cons were the group was too big, how you can offer a group of 15 or so people a job at the end i dont know. There was far too much competition in the room.
    Not enough diversity at all, and I'm not just talking about colour but also the amount of males there compared to females were a bit unfair as males are naturally more dominating so therefore have a higher chance of getting the role.
    I think if you're looking to get a job, group interviews are not the way to go as they dont really focus on each individuals talent/passion. Other than that I'm glad I went but I knew the company wasn't for me as soon as I got there.
