    Pressure from management with regards to targets
    Emphasis on performance

    Advice to Management

    Management in retail stores vary, quite a lot actually. With Burberry, managers focus highly on KPI figures and quantitative performance. Pressure feeds down the hierarchy pyramid onto the associates. Micro-management is not an effective way of leadership. Lack of opportunity to fulfil creative potential.

    Senior API Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Burberry (London, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied for a position in LinkedIn but haven't got any response for the application for more than 2 weeks. Then, a former colleague of mine has referred for the position. After that point an internal recruiter has scheduled a telephonic interview with a senior engineer.

    The interview lasted for about 30 minutes. It is normal conversation about current experience and the interviewer has explained how they do things at Burberry. After the call, the recruiter sent an email that they are impressed with my profile and would like to organise a face to face interview over the next few days. But that never happened. I have sent an email to the recruiter that the face to face interview hasn't been scheduled. He replied that he will get back to me very soon which once again never happened.
