    Supply Chain Modeler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at General Dynamics (Manchester, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred by a GD empoyee (and former colleague). I was called for an on-the-spot interview without any prior notice. As I was on the phone at the time I put my client on hold and took the call from GD. Informing them I was otherwise engaged, I asked them to call me back in 5 mins. They failed to do so.

    3 days later they sent me a meeting request via Outlook. I acceped for 12:30 the following Monday.

    GD called me at 13:30 the following Monday,

    I asked if they were looking to the fill the role with a temporary employee or a contractor. They asked me to explain the difference!! Once I had explained the difference they decided it would be filled by a contractor.

    I asked about the job description. There wasn't one.

    I asked what exactly they wanted to model. This was to be determined

    I asked about the contract duration. They had not decided.

    I asked about the working hours, working days per week, flexibility, etc. They hadn't thought about this yet.

    I asked about remuneration. No decision had been made.

    They told me the poistion would be in South Wales and would I be prepared to work there. I said it would be difficult to commute from Manchester!

    By this time I was seriously wondering what they were expecting me to commit to.

    Interview ended after 10 mins. Happy to have avoided that bulet!
