    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AKT II (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    A strange experience - I've never had someone call me in for an interview and then spend the entire time trying to tell me why I wouldn't want it. The interview was a simple 1 to 1 with one of the directors of the company. I was asked some basic questions about my experience but I felt that the interviewer had made up his mind beforehand that I was overqualified.

    I also had to do a lot of chasing with the director's PA to get a response following the interview and felt that if I hadn't I wouldn't have ever heard back. When you have spent money going up to London to interview for a role and blocking out half a day that could have been more productively spent applying for other roles - it's just common courtesy to get back to people.

    I found it quite frustrating that the job description wasn't detailed enough for me to make a reasonable judgement about the opportunity before I applied. Salary was not mentioned (it was not indicated on the job spec either) and the job responsibilities amounted to a half dozen non-specific bullet points.

    I was told in the interview that the job was dead-end, with no opportunities for advancement. Again - what is the purpose of this? Clearly I had different ideas from the interviewer on what the job was which wasn't made clear in the advertisement. However, given that my experience was clear in my CV and LinkedIn profile why was I invited to interview for a job if the interviewer thought I was overqualified.

    As a suggestion - perhaps don't advertise for a role if you don't know what the job is or who you want for it.

    Graduate Structural Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AKT II (London, England (UK)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Set up initial phone interview by email. First phone interview was only to check language skills (foreign applicant). Then we set up an in-person interview a couple of weeks later. Didn't feel like an interview: interviewer told me about the company, the job, the kind of person they were seeking.
    I was only asked to explain briefly my education, if I still was interested in the position after what s/he told me, and also if I applied to other companies.
    The interview ended with a tour of the office.
    Generally nice and efficient communication via phone or email but the interviews was a bit awkward.
    Didn't wait for an offer as I accepted another job shortly afterwards.
