    Sub Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bet365 (Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    After applying online for the role, I was invited in for an interview with two of the senior members of the publishing team.

    The interview itself was split into three different parts, and in total lasted around two hours. First and foremost, there was a lot of initial questions about the company and what I know about them. Make sure you really dig into what the company is about and show off what you know about their products. After, this I had a range of competency-based questions, as well as a look into my suitability for the role. Standard questions, but a lot of them.

    The second part of the interview consisted of three different writing and subbing tests. Nothing overly difficult, but again, it's important to look into how the company shape their text and promotions.

    Finally, I had a few more basic questions and then an overview of the role and what to expect. I was offered the job a week later.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bet365.

    Interview

    Telephone interview which was quite technical
    Written test which was easy enough, mostly TSQL covering left joins, inner joins, one to many relationships and simple grouping question.
    None of it was on a pc, all had to be hand written, I think there were around 10 questions.

    Customer Account Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bet365 in January 2017.

    Interview

    I didn't even apply for this job, but they found my CV online. I agreed to have a chat with them about the role but when they called the lady I spoke with didn't even know that. She asked me why I had chosen to apply for this role and I awkardly responded that I hadn't. She then decided to conduct a phone interview anyway. I got an email the day after saying I was invited for a face-2-face interview in their offices in Stoke. On the plus side they paid for the flight, which was the only reason I even went. Sorting out the booking was a farse, they found super awkward flights and wanted me to come in and fly out on the same day. As if you can deliver a great interview if you've been up since 2 am. When I got there, Stoke in itself was the most depressing place I've ever been to. I think the graveyard I passed on my way to their offices was a sign of what was to come. It really didn't get better when I got to their main offices. I waited for a while in the clinical-feel reception area and my interviewer were late. When I finally met the interviewer they were friendly and tried to make me relax as we went to the interview room. However, what followed wasn't great. I got the classic questions such as what sports do you follow and a bunch of competency based questions. The two interviewers were unprofessional, one of them even blurted out sexual innuoendos. I have never felt so awkward. Apart from the one interviewer who basically spoke without thinking, the other one sat there as a statue and gave a really judgy vibe, making me feel really stupid. The questions were easy enough but I found that the interviewer kept repeating what I said, and told me what I felt about the situations I described. The interpretations were dead wrong and I kept on having to repeat myself. The interviewers came across as really unprepared. After the very awkward interview, I was put in the team I would be working with. The account advisor I was paired up with clearly wasn't prepared and it was just 15 super awkward minutes where I tried to ask questions. Next I had the translation test, which was the most pleasant part of the experience. While I was completing the test I sat in the open office space, and one thing I really couldn't get past was the horrible air. It was literally no ventilation system so it didn't take long till I got a headache. Overall, I found the interview to be quite easy, but I was really put off by the unprofessional conduct of my interviewers, the lack of enthusiasm of the staff I met, and the horrible working conditions.

    International Content Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bet365 (Stoke-on-Trent, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was approached by bet365 after I had uploaded my CV onto an employment website. I had a first 15min interview on the phone. Later, I had a 1-1,5h skype interview with two managers. The interview was very nice and relaxed and the questions were not too difficult. After 30-40min I passed on to the translation test to be completed in one hour. The translations were from English into the target language and consisted of website content. After the test, I had another conversation with one of the managers who explained me the benefits.
    Overall, the interviews were good and the interviewers were clam and patient.
    I am just disappointed that I have never heard back from them.

    Rewards Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gibraltar (Gibraltar)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bet365 (Gibraltar (Gibraltar)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Skype based interview - Breif introdction lightly skipping over who attendees are and what they do straight into very structured questions. Lasted 45 minutes before further details of the role are very quickly discussed. Certainly not the easiest way / process and could have been easier in person. The Skype format really did not allow for any type of rapport to be built mainly due to the lack of visability of the interviewers.
