    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Chill interviewer. Asked about things on resume. Asked about personal tech situations. Went well! The guy was really inclined in hearing what kind of work I was interested in. It was only one interview. He said I was the top candidate, but in the end I took a different job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at IFDS.

    Interview

    Very last minute, didn't bother with half the processes they promised. Contacted me about the role as I had applied previously, yet they had no idea that I applied previously until I told them. Gave me a completely different position than the one I had applied for. They no idea what they are doing and there are clearly communications and database issues. I'm pretty sure I was just used for training...

    Interview Questions

    • Basic and boring customer service questions (even though the role isn't specifically client facing).   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IFDS (Stirling, Scotland (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    You have to do a competency interview describing situations you have been in but they tell you the situation to describe it's quite difficult. I don't see how that tells them if you're good at your job or not.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at IFDS (Basildon, South East England, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Easy. The questions were so standard they don't make much of an effort to look for the right staff, its evidently clear by the poor quality of staff working there currently... "experts"... are far from experts...

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at IFDS in February 2017.

    The HR rep seemed to be in a bad mood during the pre-screening. It was supposed to be a quick 15 minute thing but she was very rude and questioned me very aggressively about my qualifications.
