    Interview

    The first step included a phone interview with the HR, where you briefly discuss your experience and personality. There is quite a bit of emphasis on questions related to why you would like to work for BAT as well. Upon passing the 1st round, you are invited for a face-to-face interview at their offices with department managers.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at British American Tobacco (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    At first it was a quick process but then became more lengthy. I started with a phone interview and this was followed up by several face to face interviews.

    Although I didn't end up getting the job I felt the interview process was fair. It could have been picked up sooner than the third interview that I didn't have the experience they were after but it was good learning for me.

    My only negative would be one of the interviewers being constantly on his phone and checking it in my first face to face interview. I felt this was very unprofessional.
