Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

    Interview

    The interview was good. Lovely interviewers, engaging conversation with interesting questions.

    In total it was approximately an hour long including a short 10 minute task to present back ideas.

    However, nobody from the recruitment team had the decency to call me back, give me an update with the interview process or even let me know whether I had or hadn’t got the job.

    It takes days to prepare for an interview so a call to let me know would have been appreciated.

    I rang and emailed a number of times just to be fobbed off. The team I was interviewing for were lovely but the recruitment team were unprofessional and a waste of time.

    Don’t hold your breath if they haven’t gotten back to you after 6 weeks of waiting. Doesn’t reflect well on a company of this stature.
