    I have been working at Direct Line Group part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It’s an inclusive company, forward thinking, listens to employee suggestions.

    Cons

    I’ve heard that the pay can be better elsewhere for those that have been here a while although I understand that for new starters it’s really good

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to everyone and consider long standing staff in pay reviews

    Commercial Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bromley, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Direct Line Group (Bromley, England) in March 2017.

    Interview

    From application to scheduling an interview took 30 days. And getting feed back took 39 days. Not exactly a dynamic and fast moving place. Competency style interview, using scripts. Initial chat went well, but once the interviewer started using the script it become bland and rather boring. No attempt made to sell the company/offering or opportunities the role would bring. I did wonder why I bothered applying.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard questions, but the "fun" went out of the interview with the scripted questions.   1 Answer
