    Customer Service Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Barclays (Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was excited to have the opportunity to interview for a potential career with Barclays, I spent a long time revising about Barclays themselves, their goals/ambitions and their processes. I also had a brief look over the compentancy based questions they told me before hand they would ask (this in itself was confusing, it didn't really make sense). Nonetheless, I felt I was ready and prepped and felt fairly confident. On the day I got there, the person that was due to be interviewing me wasn't there (I don't know why because I simply wasn't told!). The person that interviewed me didn't seem like someone who usually does interviews and wasn't very good at all. I was asked when I could work, my notice etc. Then was asked 6 competency-based questions and examples for them all, I felt I answered these fairly well but could've done a little bit better. That was it, the interview was over. There was no questions whatsoever about the company or anything else that I revised upon. Really, what kind of company doesn't ask simple questions that mean a lot; Why do you want to work for us?, What do we do?; What does the job role entail?. I thought this was ridiculous, I basically questioned the interview to force him afterwards to try to question me on these and nothing. After 5 days I received an email saying "you were not chosen for the role". Why? where was my feedback? Oh yes, I had to email another team to ask, it has now been 2+ weeks since this, I'm still chasing feedback. I was due a call to explain why to me, guess what? No call. Overall I wouldn't waste your time with this company.
