    Service Assurance Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milton Keynes, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milton Keynes, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Home Retail in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through LinkedIn. I had a couple of conversations with them after they asked to see my CV. A couple of potential jobs were put to me and we decided that I was best suited to the above.
    The interview was in their offices. It was supposed to be with an IT Manager and the person I would be working for but the person I would be working for was off sick.
    It went OK. The guy was very enthusiastic about the company. He asked me a bit about what I knew about the company and my experience. It only went on for 30 minutes. I don't know if this was because he had made his mind up about me or because the other 30 minutes would be questions from the person who didn't turn up.
    About a week and a half later they did have the courtesy to ring me to say that I wouldn't get a second interview on account of lack of experience. I was sort of expecting it as I don't have any experience of SIAM but hoped my knowledge of having been in outsourcing and my general enthusiasm would carry me through.
