    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at British Gas (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England)

    Interview

    In-person interview and assessment centre. The assessment centre comprised of a test and a presentation using the materials provided on the assessment.
    Overall, the assessment itself wasn't bad or too difficult but it was probably the worst run interview I've had.
    They mentioned the interview would be around an hour, but it ended up taking over three hours. Also, the offices are in Slough, and I asked beforehand if the travel costs could be expensed as it's really far from where I lived. They said it should be ok, but after the interview, I contacted the hiring manager again about this, but never received a response. They also told me they were happy with me and the manager would invite me back to the office the following week for a coffee and a chat, but I never heard back from them. I'm perfectly fine if they were not going to offer me the job, but to ignore me completely after the final assessment was really unprofessional.
