    Entretien de Senior Analyst

    Employé anonyme - Londres, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Offre acceptée
    Expérience positive
    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Hastings Direct (Londres, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en octobre 2020.

    Entretien

    Applied for role online, contacted by email/phone by internal recruiter to gauge my interest in the role/compensation expectations.
    Phone interview with hiring manager arranged to discuss my experience - more like a friendly conversation with general questions around current industry challenges and software usage.
    Got invited to a second interview, being tasked with producing a case study analysis to be questioned by hiring manager, head of department and equivalent level role.
    A third and final interview was then scheduled with the main component being the critique of an example of junior analyst work.

    Entretien de Senior Engineer

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris une semaine. J'ai passé un entretien à Hastings Direct en septembre 2020.

    Entretien

    1. Applied for role
    2. Got called by their recruiting HR (who was helpful)
    3. Skype/Zoom call with the engineer and the lead engineer that would be running that part/team.

    Beware of interviewing with this company. They have the habit of interviewing experienced candidates only just to fish out information from the candidates experience and skills e.g. how you have done similar roles elsewhere, how you would do the role at their company, how you approached certain scenarios and what tools you used and what tools they should get etc. I have over 20 years experience

    During my interview I found it surprising that the interviewer was far more interested (and concerned) in asking me questions based mainly on finding out information on how things are done in a particular field/space, which was very spurious in a manner, specious and misleading. It was very unprofessional and dishonest. Luckily, I realized 15 mins into the interview (interview lasted an hour) what the interviewer was doing and I withheld a lot of information afterwards. He asked me nothing about my experience but focused more on how I would do the role and what they should do so he could write down all that is said.

    The people working there do not intend to consider experienced candidates e.g. the person who interviewed me as been working there for like over 10-15 years..

    Please read what others had said on glassdoor. Something I should have done before. hence I suggest others should do the same.

    They say they want growth but the current stale people working there are very unprofessional and do not want outsiders coming in.

    Entretien de Senior Data Engineer

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Leeds, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience neutre
    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 5 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Hastings Direct (Leeds, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en juin 2020.

    Entretien

    Had a Interview process for almost 35 days from July 2020. Cleared all the technical rounds and the last round before the official offer letter was from cross platform Senior head(informed to me that it would be an informal chat). In-spite of clearing all the Technical rounds and spending 35 days of time for preparing Case-study presentation and the interview, HR informed me that am not fit for the role. And not convinced with the explanation given by them. Even though being more potential and applied for the right job profile, being rejected for different reasons at the last round makes more depressed mentally. The whole process took more than 35 days from the initial discussion. I can clearly see that there were some miscommunication happened in the whole process.

    If the process planned to have structure in place for particular job role. It would great, if the complete structure of the interview has been explained to the candidate at-least before the start of each round. In my case, the information given and the reality was completely different.

    Technical Interviewers were extremely good. Senior People are more friendly to the candidates.

    Entretien de Program Manager

    Difficulté moyenne

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via un recruteur. J'ai passé un entretien à Hastings Direct.

    Entretien

    Has an initial interview and received very positive feedback and I was told they wanted to bring me back to meet with 2 senior people for the next stage. Despite chasing from my end this was never setup and I never heard back from them again. Considering I took time away from an existing role for the 1st interview I consider it very poor to be ghosted in this way especially considering the positive feedback from the 1st interview.

    Entretien

    Didn't get as far as answering questions as a friend passed away 90 minutes before interview. The company then decided to grant me an interview but for a job that was not what I was after - they only told me of this 5 minutes into the rescheduled interview which I was not prepared for!

    Entretien de Customer Service Representative

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Leicester, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Hastings Direct (Leicester, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en septembre 2019.

    Entretien

    Pros : Friendly relaxed environment, engaging interviewer.
    Cons : Was informed by the interviewer that they are looking to hire 200 people and have high staff turnover for this role and yet despite my 20 years customer service experience, local and worldwide, received the un-personal, computer generated "People are better suited with more experience" email.
    I understand the inner workings and worry of sifting through people who are "too experienced and too old" I guess my advice is, should you have the sufficient ability to think for yourself and have too much experience with customer care and rapport then this is not the company for you. In short i would've appreciated honesty rather than wasting my time.

    Entretien

    1st Stage - Phone Call, recruitment specialist (Well Represented)
    2nd Stage - Video Interview, Team Leaders (Mostly competency and scenario based questions)

    Rated negatively because the process just for 1 official interview took 2.5 weeks, when asked how long the whole process including onboarding would take they stated in total 6-8 weeks.

    ALSO if you are unsuccessful they do not inform you that you have not been successful despite them stating they would get back too you.
