    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Compass Group.

    Interview

    The interview in itself was very confusing. One of the interviewee's who was hiring for the role seemed very disinterested. They had no formal questions prepared for the interview. Just random questions and it was more like an informal discussion.

    The job discussion was modified and reposted hours after the interview which was much indicative of the real role a candidate would undertake which was completely different from the one posted previously

    It was a complete waste of candidate time and energy spent to prepare for the interview. Had a proper job description been posted in the first place there would have been no confusion in terms of expectations for the candidate or the interviewer.
