    Pensions Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AJ Bell (Manchester, England (UK)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    30 mins written paper. This covers basic grammar and arithmetic. You are sat on your own which is a bit daunting to some interviewees who I have spoke to since.

    The interview is with 2 managers, who will be the operational managers whom have vacancies. It's scripted and it includes such classics as "what is your greatest achievement?".

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at AJ Bell (Manchester, England (UK)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    I was approached by an IT recruitment company about a role with AJ Bell.
    There wasn't any phone interviews (other than the recruiters) and was invited straight to a face to face with two senior members of the department.
    Lovely place, very welcomed from the receptionist to the hiring managers.
    The interview consisted of usual HR questions, past experience and technical discussion.
    There was a technical test in the end.
    Despite not being offered I enjoyed meeting people at AJ Bell.
