    Marketing/Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Windsor, South West England, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Groupe SEB (Windsor, South West England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I found the listing on RateMyPlacement and applied by emailing my CV and a cover letter. I was contacted around three weeks later by phone call, this was just to set up an actual phone interview which I had a few days later. The phone interview was quite generic in terms of the questions, lasted about 15 minutes, the two women who interviewed me were very easy to talk to, it didn't feel too pressured. At the end of the phone call I was offered to attend an assessment centre with them about a month later which gave me plenty of time to prepare. About two weeks before the assessment centre they sent me the outline for a presentation I had to prepare about one of their products, about 5/6 minutes long. The assessment day was a great experience, it consisted of two formal interviews, one with two of the marketing managers, one with a sales manager and a HR manager. As well as this there was a tour and Q&A with the current interns and a short test just to check very basic financial maths. Overall a very comfortable atmosphere, you could tell they didn't want to scare us (there was 5 of us there on the day) and they wanted us to feel relaxed. Following on from the assessment centre i was contacted about two weeks later with the offer of a job which I had to decline as I had already accepted another placement that I felt was a better fit for me. All in all a good process, never felt like I was waiting around for them to contact me, very professional and genuine people.
