    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lloyd's Register (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied online, had a phone interview and then a face to face interview at the site. The phone interview was just simple competency questions, you can revise these online. They also asked why I wanted to work for them. The face to face interview was tougher. Again competency questions but this time they had two questions for every competency with a total of 5 competencies to test. Then at the end they asked why I wanted to work for them and everything I know about them.

    EMEA Head of Talent Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lloyd's Register (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    One of the worse selection processes I have come across. Following applying correspondence was minimal and had to constantly chase my application. Even had to reach out to senior people in the business to try and get some traction to the application. Recruiter I managed to track down dealing with the application was too unprofessional to take a telephone call so had to keep emailing him which turned into a long process when everything could have been sorted in one 5 minute telephone conversation. In the end withdrew my application - one of the worse candidate experiences I have come across

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Lloyd's Register (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, then had a 20 minute competency based telephone interview. After that I was quickly informed I was successful and invited to an hour or so long face to face interview at the London office, also competency based but with more complex questions than the telephone interview. Both interviewers were very friendly, answering any questions I had. Overall the process was very enjoyable.
