Average Interview
Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at William Grant & Sons (Girvan, Scotland, Scotland) in Feb 2021

Interview

The interview was quite casual, more focussed on personality than technical knowledge. It became apparent quite quickly that they were looking for someone more experienced so once the questions were out the way the interviewer gave me plenty of feedback on my interview along with advice on how to get my career going. I couldn't have asked for more.

Interview

I had a phone interview, which went okay. I felt like it was a younger recruiter on the phone who just had a basic set of questions that were obligatory for her to ask. She did not seem interested in any of the answers (though I felt very qualified if not over for this position).

Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 months. I interviewed at William Grant & Sons (Bellshill, Scotland, Scotland) in Jan 2019

Interview

I was referred for the role through a current employee. Initial screening phone call with HR to confirm interest and suitability for the role followed by two rounds of interviews plus 2 SHL tests for numeracy and language comprehension. First interview was competency based with HR and senior manager - providing examples of key skills required in the role description. 2nd interview was with 2 senior managers and less formal, looking more at company fit and my broader background. Overwhelming impression from interviews was it was as much about the interviewers showcasing the company to me as much as me trying to impress them - definitely a 2 way conversation which was great and made for a relaxed atmosphere. Only drawback to the whole process was the length of time it took to complete so had to be patient.

Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at William Grant & Sons (London, England, England) in Oct 2018

Interview

After the phone interview they were very eager to get me into the office almost the day after. I rescheduled my agenda and invested money into travelling to their premises which is what one does when there is an opportunity to get a job. I found the interview to be quite odd and there wasn't as much enthusiasm as on the phone. They looked at me quite weird as if they expected someone else. I wonder if this has to do with the colour of my skin as my name and birthplace would indicate that I am white which I am not. The interview went well in the sense that I clearly had all the skills and experience they were looking for. We left it with them coming back to me the day after. I waited a few days after hearing nothing and then emailed for an update, I was told to be given this tomorrow. We are now a week from the day i have interviewed for a role that was supposed to be ''urgent'' and i still have not heard anything, not even after they gave me two dates of when to receive feedback which has expired a long time ago. Extremely rude company! Even if one is not willing to offer a candidate, you still owe them feedback. When someone has changed their agenda and spent money to travel to your offices, this is the least you can do. Given that they are a lot smaller than their competitors (who i worked for) and do not have offices which promote a fun, modern work environment, I don't think they are in the position to act this way at all. I would definitely not recommend this company as an employer.
