  1. Land Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bathgate, Scotland, Scotland
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Persimmon (Bathgate, Scotland, Scotland) in Apr 2021

    Interview

    I applied for this role by submitting my CV via email. Received a initial telephone call after about a month from submitting, 30 min chat then advised I would be contacting again for zoom interview if successful. Zoom meeting followed, last for over an hour then another zoom meeting lasting similar time. It took approximately 2 months to get to this stage, and few weeks followed then offer final meeting with in person, meeting lasted an hour then offer job.
    Following the offer it was a shamble and unprofessional experience took almost 3 weeks, then told finally the job was no longer there due to internal reviews. During the 3 weeks wait I had to speak to another MD for further interview questions. Nightmare experience!
