  1. Analytics Manager Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Began with an online assessment where you recorded answers to questions into a camera which was fine. Fairly straight forwards ones you would expect for a phone interview and the odd more quirky one like “tell me about your best holiday?”

    Main interview was a normal competency based assessment, very little back and forth with interviewer but was more traditional reading of questions from a sheet type affair. I also was asked to prepare a case study presentation.

    A generally fine experience although I didn’t leave feeling fired up about the role and their feedback to me was extremely vague which has left me confused wondering what I could have done better.
