    Customer Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunbury, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Johnson & Johnson (Sunbury, England).

    Interview

    Initial discussions and interview was positive. Had an initial discussion about relevant skills and expertise over the phone. Invited to attend interview which was professional and reasonably challenging in line with what the role expected. Invited to further interview but company unable to be flexible on date which caused some issues for me. Attended this interview and was subsequently asked to come and view the office a further time (this would have been the third in total) to meet the team and make sure I was 100% happy with the role. Was stressed that this categorically was not an interview but prepared for one anyway. On arrival was shown around the office/teams and was told by the hiring manager that she had other candidates in mind and couldn't decide who she wanted, hence the 'final stage' being extended. So in other words it was another interview. Was promised an answer the following day which never materialised. Chased the company as my existing employer wanted to extend my contract but they never came back to me again as promised. Eventually got the answer a week after promised which resulted in the loss of my contract. Very unprofessionally managed. The internal recruiter advised they wanted me to apply for another role that was being paged and that she would contact me about this role when it was available for applications. That phone call never came either.
