  1. Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kier Group (Bristol, England) in Mar 2022

    Interview

    Absolutely the worst interview experience I have had in over 20 years in this industry. Two interviews where the interviewers were late and took phone calls. No formal questions of description of the role. Feedback process was even worse with me having to continually chase for a decision. Also the parties didn't follow through with commitments on time line and didn't respond to my emails and text messages. I would never apply to Kier again and wouldn't works for managers who showed such blatant disregard for potential new employees. I certainly wouldn't recommend Kier and will advise anybody I know to stay well clear. There are better companies out there. Perhaps the HR department need to do some coaching on interview techniques and address the poor communication skills that their Senior Managers are lacking.
    Interview

    Asked about my availability and advised the onboarding process was slow.
