  • We don't depend on external partners for service quality

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Colt Technology Services.

    Interview

    The Interview lasted around 30 minutes. The lady was extremely nice and it went super well. I really had high hopes for this role. . I asked her who would be the ideal candidate for this role? And she said the person has to have a strong desire to learn and that’s about it. She told me I would know in 2 days. I never got an answer until I messaged her like twice. The day before the second interview I get an email saying that I wasn’t successful. I just don’t understand how can one be unsuccessful when this is a graduate scheme, I poured my heart and soul of how much I want to lear and be part of the HR department. I have the qualifications and studying for CIPD. I just feel like it wasn’t fair. Also, unprofessional not knowing until the day before.
