    Five Things to Nail When Managing Millennials | theHRD

    Today's 20 and 30-somethings are a somewhat perplexing breed of employees. It didn't surprise us that 32 percent of the HR professionals we surveyed said millennials are the hardest group of employees to engage - considerably more so than their Gen X and baby boomer counterparts.

    Graduate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Synechron (London, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Full day assessment centre with multiple tests and face-to-face interviews. You are interviewed alongside about another 15 candidates on the day
    The days started off with a brief introduction to the company and was followed by a set of tests.
    First was the coding problems which were interesting, but far more complex than what was suggested by the HR team in the initial phone interview. The general consensus was that this section was harder than expected.
    The second was a simple data visualisation task using Excel or Tableau. After this session, you need to compile a presentation for the interview stage.
    The final was a numerical reasoning test which was probably the easiest section of the day.

    After all the tests were completed, half the candidates are sent home while the rest carry on with the interviews. A general conversation with HR follows, with questions about your motivations, interests, and experience. The presentation is right after this, where you present your results from the data visualisation task.

    Overall, a very exhausting day and they really could have given the candidates a few tasks to prepare before the interview. Otherwise, seems like a decent company and the competition is high for places probably for good reason.
