    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society Group (Leeds, England).

    Interview

    Damn hard work all the way from start to finish was never ending. Completed form and loaded my cv online, then I was asked to complete two psychometric tests English and Maths even though I was already employed by them and had completed them 7 month previously,, then had a 30 minute telephone interview and then finally a one hour interview. By that time the job had surpassed me and considering the salary on offer, they really made me work for my interview. The final straw was being given no feedback on any of my interviews. To be honest, in my opinion companies and especially banks that put barriers up to potential employees and offer a salary that doesn't reflect the requirements, are not promoting community spirits and consequently not worth bothering with. YBS did nothing to keep me on even though I was capable and had delivered everything they had employed me for, and I had been working for them for two years on a fixed term contract. In the end I became fed up of applying for jobs internally and not getting anywhere. I applied for 5 internal jobs in total and suddenly I wasn't good enough for any of the roles. I decided my path was better elsewhere

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society Group in April 2016.

    Interview

    Painful. Capability questions which do not assess the person and their capability's. Basically if you can talk the talk you will get the role despite your abilities.
