    Senior Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at GKN in December 2014.

    Interview

    Interview process to 5 weeks. 1 week to set up interview and almost 4 to find out how you did. Information returned was minimal. I had to ask my contacts within the company as to the outcome. The hired an internal candidate for the position approx. 2 weeks before my interview, this leads me to believe my interview time was schedules to make the internal hire legitimized.

    Interview Questions

    Human Resources Placement Year Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England (UK)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at GKN (Bristol, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through my universities website which advertised vacancies; I sent an email and covering letter. I was then invited through to the interview stage and told it would involve a 1:1 interview and e-tray exercise. When I arrived, two of us were waiting to be interviewed - one completed the hour long e-tray exercise whilst I had my 1:1 interview, and then we swapped. It was friendly and relaxed, and I felt comfortable throughout. However, following the interview it took 3 months to hear anything back - and this was very poorly dealt with. I had been told i would hear back within 2 weeks; it took myself emailing multiple times/phoning up to eventually be asked if I wanted to come back and interview for a different role, by this point as the role was in HR I didn't feel they dealt with the recruitment process well, and it was not a company I wanted to work for.
