  1. Sales Development Representative Interview

    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Funding Options (London, England, England)

    Interview

    After a successful interview over the phone from abroad, the company invited me to visit their London office at my own expense. They confirmed the date but never gave me a time, as they said they were still figuring out what worked best for everyone. As the day came nearer I grew worried, and the day before the interview they suddenly claimed they had not confirmed with me yet. Did they expect me to book a trip on the day?
    The day of the interview itself, I was told someone was off sick, and that was the reason for cancelling the interview that day. My interview got rescheduled to next week, and this person was not even involved in any of the interviews, and he knew nothing about being sick when I asked him how he was feeling. I suspect the company Christmas party was the real reason for rescheduling my interview on the day it was supposed to take place.

    The interviews themselves were pleasant, the workplace is a big open plan callcenter-esque floor. After the interview, I had to keep chasing them for over two weeks, as they kept saying someone was out of the office and they would like to all get together to discuss. I think they were simply stringing me along to see if someone better or more senior would come along. They claimed they really liked my personality, background, and previous experience, but decided to go with someone more senior instead. This interview was for an entry-level position.

    Overall I liked the interviews themselves, just feel that the company and its HR activities are very unprofessional and poorly organised.

    No particular difficult or unexpected questions were asked in these interviews.
