    Head of Marketing Communications Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hedge End, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glen Dimplex (Hedge End, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation - 2 interviews, first was with senior members of the business, 2nd was with Head of the department.

    1st Stage was fine and what you would expect for a senior position, questions were indepth and focused around results and performance. Interviewers were friendly, knowledgeable and interesting.

    2nd interview was quite frankly the worst interview I have ever taken part in. The interviewer was late, flustered and clearly had never read my CV - he sat in the interview reading it on his laptop; whilst simultaneously trying to kick start the interview.

    Clearly this was detrimental to his ability to perform any semblance of a structured interview. It was evident he had no questions planned; there was a great deal of 'umm'ing' and 'ahh'ing' as he tried to think of appropriate questions. In the end I had to take control just to get the interview started by asking myself a question and then answering it, while he got on with reading my CV.

    When questions were asked, he was still so busy reading my CV trying to prepare for the next question that he wasn't listening to the answer (so there was no cross questioning), most of the time he didn't even realise I had finished talking.

    The only time he came to life was when discussing his admiration of their Non-Exec Chairman; I estimate this took up approx 50% of the interview.

    Feedback received was that he felt he 'didn't click' with me. I can't say that I was surprised by this, especially given the fact he clearly wasn't listening for half the interview and the half was an over the top form of hero worship.

    Overall a bullet dodged; not an individual I would have wanted to work for as he clearly was not capable of managing his time or thoughts with any structure or clarity.
