    Good process, telephone then F2F interview which was with the area manager and the branch manager. It was the branch that the role was advertised for. The interview did start late which I was a bit annoyed about.

    Interview

    No one in their right mind would like to work for this manager who missed 3 appointments and is misrepresenting the facts (rather lying) when he says "he has advised he has emailed and text you but hasn’t received a response".

    Assistant Management Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    First, it was an online application. The second stage was online tests both verbal and numeric . I made it to the next stage which was an interview and group work which lasted about 2 hours. The day was organised and I enjoyed it. However, disappointed that no feedback was provided despite requesting it. I was just ignored. It takes time, effort to prepare for these assessments. Also, money to travel as they do not reimburse travel expenses.

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    It took two months from application date to arrange for a face to face interview. It lasted two and half hours including a test.

    Two months after my interview I received the outcome. The entire process took 6 months. Very disappointing experience and glad I didn't go for the job in the end.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society Group (Leeds, England).

    Interview

    The interview process was formal but slighty offensive. They started well but things changed after 30 minutes or so. Not sure if questions are asked to any candidate or just salespeople.

    IT Service Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society Group (Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied via agency, and shortlisted for first stage interview which was with two people using a set of standard competency based questions. I expected YBS to be a fairly conservative organisation, but it's actually got some leading edge stuff. The questions therefore went from fairly easy into some quite complex aspects. The interviewers were quite friendly and it's seems like a good place to work.

    Senior Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society Group (Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager after initial recruiter phone screening. The phone interview was followed quite quickly by a face-to-face meeting with the hiring manager and another senior auditor. This was competency-based and fairly low-pressure - the emphasis was on getting a feel for "fit" with team and professional ability/approach rather than any kind of "pressure" interview.
