    Marketing Change Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Royal London (London, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Initially a very smooth process but massively fell over after the interview. Initial telephone interview went well with the recruiter and was invited to a face-to-face with the hiring managers. F2F interview went well, both interviewers were friendly and made for a pleasant interview experience. I was promised a response within a week but this never came.

    After the week's wait, the job was relisted online and the recruiter couldn't be bothered to have the courtesy to tell me I'd not been successful. Repeatedly tried to make contact with the recruiter for a response but nothing was responded to. Gave up after four weeks. Evidently the company doesn't care enough about it's people to have basic common courtesy towards potential new recruits, something which seems to be a common trait amongst these reviews. I will be avoiding the company going forwards.
