    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank in October 2017.

    Interview

    It was a telephone interview which started with a description of the role. We then went through my CV, and questions were asked on what I did during previous jobs. Only the most recent CV entries were discussed, and in particular those which most closely matched the job role.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I deal with someone in a meeting who was clearly a subject matter expert and who wanted to talk at length about technical issues. How would I keep the meeting agenda under this circumstance.   Answer Question

    Questions around me, my ability to get into the office, working with others (I had worked alone for many years) and whether being a mother affected my ability to do the job properly.

    The opening offer of salary was more than acceptable as they were desperate to hire me

    Sales Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    A fairly informal first interview with Senior Director, followed by second interview which pretty much covered the same ground again. Both interviews covered the plans for the business along with exactly what the role entailed and what was expected. Quite relaxed, although plenty of probing and challenge around previous roles and achievements.

    Credit Risk Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Wilmslow, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Wilmslow, England (UK)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was very strange. One interviewer repeatedly swore throughout the interview which I found to be very unprofessional. It's one things for colleagues to casually swear amongst each other but it's a massive red flag if it's happening several times during an interview process. The interviewer kept asking vague questions, knowing that I'm a recent graduate with no industry experience, and getting frustrated when I didn't have the answer. The role itself was explained with some degree of depth but it felt like the interviewer was trying very hard to sell it as a 'boring job' which came off odd as well.

    Definitely one to avoid for me.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Reading, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    It was a 3 stage process:

    Telephone interview with the recruitment agency - just the usual questions like what do you know about Aldermore (had to remember and think on my feet but he was impressed with the responses!)
    Telephone interview with one of the team
    Face to face interview the hiring manager and a member of the team - included a task on requirements and processes and some questions about how I approach stakeholders and changes in scope and requirements. It was a really relaxing chat and had an informal feel but I think that was also down to the hiring manager and the other person in the interview. The hiring manager was very approachable, down to earth and not intimidating at all. It was a genuine 2 way process and I felt comfortable having an honest and open discussion about what I was looking for and we found common ground. Definitely better than the competency based nonsense I have had elsewhere - won't be sticking around in any future interviews if they aren't as relaxed as this - it's a benchmark. Dunno whether the interview approach was the hiring manager or the organisation - the hiring manager I think.

    Really happy with the process. It felt like a genuine 2 way conversation throughout all the stages and they were efficient and quick - unlike other organisations who I have interviewed with over the past few months - now I have a benchmark to compare their ineptitude against.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Aldermore Bank (Manchester, England (UK)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Initial telephone screening followed by two in person meetings. A blend of personality, knowledge and motivations. Second meeting focussed more on working style and a couple of competency questions, but was a very nice blend of informal fact finding.
