    Business Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at MH Alshaya in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Lengthy interview process, takes a long time to actually see anyone or hear back from them. A lot of fishing happens, they are basically out in the market hiring nearly all the time for a variety of Business Directors offering what looks like a high salary base to tempt people. Whilst the brief for the role tends to be detailed, they are really looking for people who are in their current industry (or based around their franchise) without taking people from the franchisor, which makes it difficult for them to really find the people they think they need and they need to take more risks with people outside of their direct industry.

    Interview Questions
    • Unless you are currently working within the business they are in (and very specific business) this process will just waste your time.   Answer Question
