    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Ambition in March 2018.

    Interview

    A total clown agency. The recruiters are a joke and hardly know the industry. I had better results going direct and using job boards rather than applying thru agencies. They will ask you down for an interview just to push up their KPIs and learn about your industry for their own benefit. Seriously don’t understand why recruiters exists if they can survive a real job.

    Internal Positions Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney (Australia)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ambition (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    The worst interview experience ever , I was humiliated, and cut in the middle of what i was talking in the initial 5 minutes of the interview by using "not interested in listing" words (repeated multiple times) in the interview that lasted 11 minutes. May be the internal management of the Agency demands too much or they want to employ slaves.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to leave your current job?
      The company you are working for is too small.. strange?
      Why does your designation not have "Senior" to it.
      Please explain about the targets... after 30 seconds, not interested in hearing about your targets .
      Why do you want a job security, you don't require it - like someone will be sponsoring me for lifetime.
      You will be informed within two weeks if shortlisted - after this sort of a behavior would you expect to be contacted again?

      A very Demeaning experience.   1 Answer
