    Senior GL Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Passing 5 different tests, invitation to a 3 stage personal interview, potential offer. There were 5 tests involved that they wanted me to solve before joining them in a face to face 3 stage interview. I applied for a role in Financial reporting "Senior General Ledger Accountant" in the London office. Was a bit surprised as I am not applying for a job at Morgan Stanley or some kind of Investment bank etc. but tried to stay positive and get on with it. I solved all tests to the best of my knowledge and prepared myself for the already scheduled face to face interview. One test was only about sales (for an accounting role?) another one was about costing (ok a bit closer now but why costing for a role in reporting?) This test was really difficult to solve actually as you needed to solve 20 questions in 30 min. Sounds easy but those were really not too easy questions with long text for which you needed pen and paper and a calculator to actually solve them. There is an average 1.5 min. per question not much anymore. In the end I just ticked the boxes to have at least completed the test and get some points. Then there was a test about "Design" which mainly tested you which kind of charts you prefer (to be fair I am an accountant for over 6 years now and needed a chart probably once) and many answers could have been personal choice (not all of them I agree but most of the yes. Another test was english verbal reasoning. It was mainly about english grammar and I let my girlfriend do it for me as she loves those kind of tests and she holds a masters degree in English. So for her it was a piece of cake.
    Anyway, they canceled the personal interview one day before as I would have performed strong in the tests but still failed two of them and therefore they would be no longer interested in me. Amazing, I mean there you go through the process of being tested in 5 different categories (2 probably 3 of them not even relating to my future job) working in this field for many years successfully and then not even being able to show your quality. This made me very unhappy today and I truly believe they are loosing many good men because of this process. Relate the questions a bit more to your day to day tasks or keep it more general and ask more behaviour related questions but this was absolutely terrible.
