    IT Department Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Swinton Insurance in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    2 stage interview. Technical test and then interview with HOD and a line manager. The objectives of the technical test are not clear. They say they do not expect you to complete the test and only want to see the approach and understanding of the core concepts. But my experience was that they wanted to see me complete the test. At least thats what the feedback suggested. You will not be given a chance to discuss your code as the 'Architect' would not be having a solid understanding of the core concepts and is there only to mark his presence.
    The manager's interview appeared to be more transparent, open and structured with clear questions and provide you a chance to display what you have to offer and what have you achieved so far.
    Overall experience was not good as you would expect to have a fair discussion on the core concepts and not just a farce where your answer paper is marked not against clear set of objectives and expectations but entirely on the whims of a single individual.

    Sales Agent Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Swinton Insurance in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview arranged through their recruitment agency. I received an email confirmation of the interview details, which you would assume the interviewers would have a copy of. No they got the time completely wrong. As a result they thought I was a no-show and sent the panel away. On my arrival later, once their error was realised, the regional manager decided to go ahead with the interview.
    For a regional she couldn't wing an interview to save her life. Even with her printed Q&A sheets and scoring system it appeared as if she'd never done this before. Didn't print off my CV although it had been re-emailed on my arrival concequently she struggled to take in my extensive experience and work history, well she failed to even grasp it.
    Despite several follow ups I never received any sort of result or feedback from the interview. Total cowboys.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Swinton Insurance in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online after seeing the job on their careers site - got an email straight away and the recruitment team kept in touch all the way through the process. They telephone interviewed me first and then I went inot the call centre for an interview with one of the team managers - some questions were really easy but others were more difficult but the team manager who interviewed me was great and gave me time to think and even asked if I wanted to skip a quesiton and come back to it. They gave me a tour fo the office and made me feel really welcome.
    I got a call the next day whti my offer and then they emailed me all the relevant paperwork - it was so simple.
