    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at OVO (London, England, England) in Apr 2021

    Interview

    I had a first stage telephone interview with a member of the recruitment team and a second stage interview was quickly scheduled for a week later. I was really impressed with the first stage of the interview and the turnaround time in being updated by the recruiter. However, I received a voicemail & email today, 15 minutes before the second stage interview was due to commence and was informed it was being cancelled due to a communication breakdown. A little more advance notice would have been appreciated, having spent a considerable amount of time preparing for the interview and I would have understood more if it had been due to illness or a similar reason, given the short notice. I decided to withdraw my application and it hasn’t left me with a great impression of the company. I would not recommend applying for roles with OVO to family and friends, as a result of this experience.
