    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DP World (Stanford-le-Hope, England (UK)).

    Interview

    There were 4 stages to the interview process:
    - theoretical questionnaire
    - preliminary interview followed by an onsite theoretical questionnaire
    - technical interview
    The theoretical questionnaire was fairly difficult, but not impossible.
    And the interviews themselves were pretty relaxed. The interviewer made me feel at ease.
    It was a fun process.

    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southampton, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at DP World (Southampton, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was long winded with about thirty questions. The people taking the interview were playing the good cop bad cop style. One of the interviewees looked totally disinterested as she rarely wrote anything down. The questions were irrelevant as the job was totally administration support and the questions were proper tough interview questions

    Senior Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DP World (Dubai (United Arab Emirates)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was a nightmare. Nobody informed me how to reach the HR office in Dubai, the taxi dropped me in the wrong location and I had to walk almost 1 kilometer in the heat. I needed a shower by the time I arrived. Not a good start. The HR guy sized me up and probably made up his mind at first glance. Interview consisted in this dude trying to impress me with his leadership. It is a joke

    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at DP World (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview was disjointed. Different managers wanted to interview me (for the one job) to see how I would fit in, but no one seemed to have time that day and was only squeezed in for short rushed chats. This became a monologue by managers rather than a 2 way conversation. I left with many unanswered questions.

    Interview

    I had a preliminary call about a week after the deadline for applications ended. Questions were pretty standard, focused on my background and experience of the GCC region. At the end of the call I was asked to come in for the interview a couple of days later.
