    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burton upon Trent, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Greene King (Burton upon Trent, England (UK)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Was interviewed by a very arrogant man, who asked cryptic questions and went through my CV. Found the whole thing very one sided, with all the power and control with them. Wasn't a 2 way conversation at all. The panel didn't explain the role and both people interviewing painted GK in a very misleading way.
