    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at A-Plan Insurance (Bournemouth, England) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Went for an interview here a few years ago, I didn't say anything at the time because I felt embarrassed and ashamed about the way I allowed them to treat me. Now being a few years older, with more experience, I feel like it is important for me to share my experience.

    They like to employ mainly, blonde, attractive women. I got the feeling that the managers have tried to make it into their ideal little men's club.
    Before going in for interview, waiting in the office, I was handed a pathetic little piece of paper with a numeracy test on and expected to complete it there with a pencil. I found this very insulting to my professionalism, as well as demonstrative of how unprofessional they were as employers.
    Finally, when called into the office, I was interviewed by one of the arrogant managers, who seemed like he was interrogating me in a 'jovial' manner, I felt as though I wasn't being taken seriously or being treated equally as a young female. He then said, in short, that he would not be employing me and he knew that when he saw my C.V, but wanted 'to meet me anyway'.
     I felt like my time had been wasted, I hadn't been treated with respect, and I felt humiliated.
    I think the company is managed by men with little boy mentalities, who think it's an opportunity to create their own little sexist paradise.
    Sleazy and awful.
