    Channel Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Akamai (Addlestone, England) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone call with a UK based recruiter followed by a telephone call with the hiring manager and then further contact from the recruiter asking me to come in for a face to face interview, telephone interview with the recruiter was pretty superficial, and unfortunately when it came to the hiring manager she appeared ill prepared and a bit off the pace.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard - not particularly well prepared questions like 'So tell me a bit about your background'   1 Answer
