    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at British American Tobacco.

    Interview

    Very thorough filtering process. In chronological order, it starts with an online assessment that covers multiple areas (cognitive, logic, numerical, etc), followed by a HR phone interview, face to face panel interview, assessment day and closing interview with the functional head. Toughest stage was probably the face to face interview and assessment day. Do note that each step of the application process is a precursor for the next step. In other words, candidates must pass each stage before moving on to the next.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at British American Tobacco (Monterrey, Nuevo León (Mexico)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Online application. Didn't pass a culture test but I was called later for a one on one interview at their facilities. I was scheduled for one day but at that same day a few hours before the interview, I was cancelled and programmed for next day. I felt that it was a little difficult to get the information out of the recruiter the few times I called during the process.
