    Internal Communications Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at EY (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by a senior manager questions were biased and based on own prejudices and beliefs. Interviewer was describing his work experience as the benchmark to other candidates he was hiring. No room for any creativity or flexibility. Could see they were only looking for someone like themselves. Questions were the standard but with underlying tones not very dynamic in approach and environment. Face fits culture so questions tended to be derived from that initial through the door assessment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at EY (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Filled in an online application form which was fairly straightforward and uploaded CV. Got invited to a telephone interview which was about 15 minutes in length. The questions were all fairly okay and skills based, so although there was no requirement to provide actual evidence of your skills, it proved useful. I was then invited to the assessment centre.
