    Supplier Relationship Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Aker Solutions in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited from my LinkedIn profile by a recruiter, couple of phone screens, job looked promising, esp. as it paid more than 20k more than my current job. After phone interview with the hiring manager, radio silence for over 2 weeks before finally getting a rejection e-mail. Which I replied to with "thanks for the timely e-mail; Having not heard from you for over 2 weeks, I assumed I did not get the job". Communication could have been a lot better. But, I didn't apply, I was recruited. so whatever....

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Aker Solutions (Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Build presentation based on analysis of data set provided. Provide recommendations to the strategy questions they ask.

    The whole interview felt like a set up to get an answer to their question on whether they should enter the market into Country X. They were VERY KEEN to get hold of the presentation material. All the questions asked were directed to how the conclusion was derived. There was not much emphasis on candidates' decision making process.

    Electrical Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Aker Solutions (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Two hour job interview on site with a technical manager, and an HR assistant then a walk around of the workshop.

    First of all, the interview started 20 minutes late due to Aker.

    For the first hour and a half the manager went over the role and asked limited complexity technical questions about my background, then the HR guy - who looked uninterested throughout - asked some behavioural questions.

     On completion of interview there was no "next step" or timeline on the decision. Instead the HR guy just slipped off without a word leaving me with the manager to show me around. That was the last time I heard from Aker - they didn't even have the courtesy or the integrity to notify me as to their decision - despite having my email address - which is rather dispiriting since I drove 8 hours that day to attend the interview ( I have since heard from others, Aker ONLY respond if the job is offered). It should also be pointed out that the actual job function was misrepresented and didn't bear much relation to job specification sent out - it was a much lower level position than what I was led to believe .

    Overall, I found the process disappointing and dispiriting and do not recommend this company to others thinking of applying. Neither interviewers displayed professional outlook - the HR guy obviously bored and the manager didn't give the impression he knew his remit or organised enough to take the interview.

    Lifecycle Support Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aker Solutions (Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The info sent out, stated one hour technical and 1.5 hour behavioral interview then emailed to say they wished to do an initial telephone interview which lasted 20 mins - which involved me going over my cv.

    They then sent me a Thomas psychometric profiling questionnaire.

    On attending subsequent onsite interview I was given a behavioral interview based on the Thomas Qr (by a young lady no more than 22 yr accompanied with two managers who said very little) instead of the stated technical interview which I hadn't prepared for. The interview bombed.

      In addition, they waited 10 days before they slipped in the rejection email which they could have done on the afternoon after the interview.

    Finally, I drove 4 hours there and back (400 mls) at considerable expense to myself and yet this company with its billion (£) annual profits didn't even offer to pay travel costs.

    Graduate Talent Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Aker Solutions in December 2012.

    Interview

    Good initial communication, answered emails quickly. It is slightly obnoxious that you physically have to fill in all info from your CV on their own Easycruiter database - this took a lot of time, and the system is a bit unorganised and complicated. Why not just hire that extra HR person to screen the CV's and cover letters as they are - it is a bit more work for them but makes things a lot more convenient for the applicants.

    I went through three online SHL tests (verbal, numerical and competency) before having my phone interview which was made by an external recruiter agency. It lasted about 45-60 minutes and was competency based. Friendly interviewer.
