    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ESBI (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Met with stakeholders, and Head of PMO to discuss experience and to assess if there was a suitable cultural fit. The interview was held in house and was a panel based interview. The focus was more on cultural fit as opposed to technical or competency based questions. The feedback was quick and the interviewers were amenable.

    Human Resources Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at ESBI (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was Interviewed by 3 HR Representatives, all professional but warm. Competency based interview, panel was interactive, encouraging and knowledgeable. I was advised at the interview stage that they would be interviewing for the next 5 weeks and that they would be making a decision by early June, which they did. So even though the application and interviewing process was longer than some posts they were very clear and adhered to their proposed timelines. Also taking into consideration the competition for a post the timelines were reasonable. Also for a senior post it was only one comprehensive interview. I had just been interviewed by a multinational and the interview was 4 hours long so overall I would say it was quite a positive and efficient process.

    Interview Questions

    • Panel stuck to the four or five competency questions. There were no unpredictable questions, this was my first competency based interview. Process was fair and transparent.   Answer Question

    Very long and drawn out process from start to finish. It took them over 5 weeks to shortlist and schedule interviews. The interview itself was very formal and rigid with a panel of 3 HR Managers. It then took them another 4-5 weeks to revert with feedback.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at ESBI (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring done through external recruitment agency, initially applied with a CV, then got a call back for a phone interview - and after the phone interview there was a face-face interview up in Dublin, with 1 week in between these interviews, it then took 3 weeks after the interview to get a call back to say I was given the position, with only a weeks notice before I was due to start, which was a little short notice. Phone interview and face to face questions were exactly the same, asked for real life scenarios of where we had been in certain situations, and were asked to use the STAR approach to answer these questions, we knew this going into the interviews
