Test Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bracknell, England
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Waitrose (Bracknell, England) in November 2018.

Interview

Very slow process. A total of 8 weeks from initial application to face-to-face interview. After the initial sift there was a routine telephone interview, then a long delay before the second interview was arranged. The second interview consisted of a case study, upon which a presentation had to be prepared before the interview. The case study was not very clearly explained and seems to have been made deliberately ambiguous. The presentation was followed by competence based questions. The interviewers seemed friendly enough, but I had the feeling all along that they were going through the motions. I was easily well qualified for the role, in fact probably even too senior, and this may have been seen as a threat to some people. They refused to provide proper feedback after the interview, which was puerile and thoroughly unprofessional.
