    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hitachi Rail (London, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I went through three interviews for my role in total and had a really good experience, it took a few weeks to hear back and get the final response but the HR team had made me aware of this from the beginning so I knew what to expect. The team I met were really nice and answered all the questions I had, they also told me more about the global structure and future outlook for the business which was really valuable.
