    Information Security Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Liverpool, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Yodel (Liverpool, England) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Went direct.Hiring assistant handled my application through the stages and conducted a pre-interview assessment of my suitability.Really friendly people during the process. On estimate I'd say I got a 78% score and they had a candidate profile requirement of 85% to take the person to the next stage. Although I did not get past the first phase, I got constructive feedback on the same day from one of the HR assistants which was prepared by the hiring manager. The company went out of their way to accommodate me and even arranged a 8am Interview slot. I will certainly take on board the feedback going forward and would recommend this company for the professionalism they showed throughout the process.

    Warehouse Operative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yodel (Farnborough, Hampshire, South East England, England) in October 2015.

    Interview

    On arriving I felt an atmosphere of misery! No one was smiling, friendly of having fun in their job, it was all long faces and no one looked happy. The interviewer/manager was extremely rude and abrupt and was very belittling to two other applicants concerning their paperwork, in front of us all (there were 4 of us) We were all ordered to give our birth certificates, passports, NI numbers the whole caboodle to her so she could copy them! Is that really necessary when we haven't even been spoken to let alone got the job? I was not all comfortable with this and although the copy's were given to me how do I know there was only one copy taken? We were then taken to a board room to fill in an application form and were told that it was a 6 day week no exception. This was not stated in the advert for the job, neither was the pay or hours. I would NOT work 2.00 til 10.00 6 days a week and more fool anyone who would! When do you get time for life? No wonder everyone looked so miserable.....Awful place, I was quite happy to abort the interview right there and leave, which I did.

They just explained what needs to be done with the job and what they expect from you. Currently waiting for the call back from them, which they said they said would be the next day. I have put no as I haven't heard back yet.

    Delivery Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gateshead, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yodel (Gateshead, England) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Applied on their website very basic questions. Some lady who had terrible problems walking and could hardly manage the stairs. I felt so sorry for her. It was more of an informal chat. Was kept waiting for 20-30 mins in a room which must have doubled up as a canteen. I say canteen it was a room full of lockers and a couple of vending machines. Place was untidy. No reception. Had to ask some guy in an office where I was to go. Women doing interview didn't even know what time my interview was. Whole process was disorganised and unprofessional. One guy turned up in tracksuit and just looked like he had dragged himself out of bed.

    Was not a real informal interview more of a chat. Didn't hear a thing so clicked on account to say 'decline' or something to that affect. Got an email to say I had not been successful about 2 weeks later.

    Unprofessional, badly organised and not worth the hassle.
