    E-Commerce Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Smooth but lengthy process. First simple phone interview directly with hiring manager followed by presentation preparation and actual face-to-face interview. Very unprofessional response from HR though throughout the process. As an email feedback after the final interview, wrong email template was sent over to me

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I got an email from my university senior, his friend who works in Aviva London as a director in the market and operational risk team. His team needs an intern/part-time position to conduct some market risk modelling project. I got interested, so I send my CV to the director. He replied immediately and we agreed to have an informal interview in a week later. On the next Thursday, we had a 1 hour chat about what I have done in the past that are relevant to the risk modelling. The next day I received the offer.

    Controls Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Everything was planned by a head hunter. I wasn't too sure whether this role would be suitable for me just by reading the job description but went in for the interview to find out. Interview started off by the senior interviewer detailing roles and responsibilities, which was really helpful to understand acronyms in the job description and get a feel for work at Aviva. Interview itself was quite relaxed, lots of opportunities to ask questions to the interviewers.

    Managing Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Aviva (London, England (UK)) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I previously worked for Aviva so the hiring manager simply called me and quoted the salary for the position at £40k+. We had an 'interview' with no HR person present and I was offered the role on the spot. I later met with a HR rep, who simply gave me some paperwork and left for the day due to a fire alarm, that was the extent of HR's involvement in the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no interview questions as such, i just had a meeting with the hiring manager to discuss the role   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I later had a scheduled time to meet with a HR representative, but the building had a fire alarm go off so he met with me outside, gave me some paperwork and went home, I had absolutely no chance to discuss or negoitate salaries or compensation. When the offer letter came through the post, it was for £27k, which I challenged, to the hiring manager, he said that it was Aviva policy (which is a complete lie) that any individual coming out from university had to be given a level 10 (WW Scale) role, despite the role being advertised at a grade 13. As I had worked for Aviva before, I tried to get the pay and grade up, but only to £30k and to grade 11. Despite proving myself within 3 years of my role, I still am nowhere near the £40k salary I deserved.
