    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at De La Rue in January 2011.

    Interview

    Hired from temp therefore there wasn't really a process other than signing paperwork. I don't know what else I can say, there was an arrangement with the temp agency for all pre-screening of workers and ultimately after six months if you were still there you were hired on full time

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at De La Rue (Irving, TX) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online on Wednesday, was contacted by HR on Friday to set up a phone interview for Monday. Had phone interview on Monday and then was scheduled for an in-plant interview on Wednesday.

    Panel type interview with hiring manager and three other department mangers. They seemed to be distracted during interview. One reeked of cigarette smoke and seemed antsy to leave - probably needed a nicotine fix. One actually walked out during the process and came back a few minutes later with food which they snacked on for the remainder of the interview. They didn't seem to know what they wanted. Interview was quite disorganized - questions were bizarrely random.

    Business Development Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at De La Rue (Basingstoke, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A long drawn out process that just dragged on to no answers. no job offer or any feedback.

    It took a month to schedule an initial interview. After a good meeting with the HRD, we moved five weeks later to a two hour panel interview with the CCO and team. Following this an interview was scheduled with the CEO for a fortnight after, this was then cancelled at short notice with a promise of a new date. Following many chases, no answers and no other correspondence, I wonder how DLR do business? I feel happy I don't work for this company.

    Interview

    10 candidate assessment day

    Individual interviews with several groups to investigate specific areas of expertise, and personality alignment with the company. None of the groups showed a high level of skill in the interview process and did not instil much confidence in this management team.

    There was feedback post-interview. It was quite basic and speaking for myself it was not useful for future interviews.

    Delivery Manager Interview

    Interview

    The process is quite drawn out because De La Rue require a 1st and 2nd interview, you then have to go through internal clearance and Security Clearance. I have worked for other companies where the process is much slicker. You also have to bring signed forms into the business before you can start, these couldn't be posted.

    • The questions experienced weren't particularly challenging.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    It was a bit drawn out.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at De La Rue (Basingstoke, England (UK)) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Professional at all times, interviewers at all levels were friendly and helpful. The process itself was quite standard with 1st round and 2nd round interviews with increasingly more important interviewers from several different sections of the business. The office was clearly expensive but low key, all fixtures and fittings ooze money; everywhere you go it is obvious this is a company that are doing well! The employees are all content with their employers, some that I met had 40+ years service. The culture is smart and dynamic, it's very clear that these two things are highly prized at De La Rue.
