    Account Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CarFinance247 (Wilmslow, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Full assessment day in Wilmslow. Phone interview (very casual) with a recruitment consultant from Pareto Law. Followed up by an invite to the assessment day. Day consisted of self introductions (ice breaker activity), group activities, 1 to 1 logistics interview and finished with a 3 minute presentation to the assessors. After the last presentation was completed we waited for around an hour whilst they finalised their decision. Managing director came in, called out our names into different groups. Depending on what group you were called into meant you were successful with Carfinance 247, successful with another company, or offered something at least. And the rest of us left in the room were unsuccessful.

Company Updates

  • CHEERING UP BLUE MONDAY It might have been Blue Monday this week – the dreariest day of the year due to the weather, the end of Christmas and failed New Year’s resolutions but at CarFinance 247 there was a lot to be cheery about. The young people who are supported by our charity partners, Manchester Youth Zone, sent messages of positivity to our #247People to help cheer them up on Blue Monday. This lovely gesture, along with our January scrreensaver and surprise treats on everyone's desks put a smile on a lot of faces here at Universal Sq. We also celebrated the relaunch of our benefits package, which now include an extra day’s holiday for birthdays, making sure that colleagues can spend their birthday with the people who matter most. We also offer an enhanced company sick pay, provide free drinks & free fresh fruit every day, as well as being home to a free on-site gym and free yoga classes. We also offer Make a Difference Days, so that our people can help us to fulfil our purpose ‘to help people improve their everyday lives.’
