Financial Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at International SOS in December 2013.

Interview Details – 2rounds, first in the office London, line manager was nice, questions were reasonable (nothing like what is your biggest achivement in your life), HR representative was OK.
Second round: some guy from the US office,he put the call on a speaker, the line quality was poor. I asked him couple of times to put me on a headset or something...He did not, which I think rude. After every question a noisy, grating sound came to my ear, this also did not really help me to think about his questions ( which was usual interview questions, with some stupid ones...). Honestly, I really did not want to work with them after this experience.
Otherwise their office is in the middle of nowhere in London.
It took them almost two months to say no...

My interview lasted almost 4 hours with the operations manager and senior operations manager and regional operations manager and HR manager
