    Operations Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ITV (London, England (UK)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Received a call after applying for the job in a week to arrange a face-to-face interview which I chose to do in the following week. Once I arrived there was a delay since the person who was suppose to be interviewing me was 'sick' thus they were making a back-up plan. Considering this was my first interview ever it went okays but the nervousness got to me a little. At the end we finished off with me finding out that the next step would be a test in the office if I were to be selected after they interviewed the remaining candidates. After eagerly waiting for a phone call or an email to pop=up in regards to this interview, even after about a month later I did not receive anything, even after emailing them they just don't seem to be bothered.

    Interview

    If you get called in then it can take a long time to even hear anything back from these people, the person who was heading recruitment for the ma few years back and has now thankfully left was totally useless and never picked up his phone. He was also very rude and dismissive when I did get to speak to him, I got called in an was interviewed by a few ladies who seemed to be very judgemental.

    Senior Systems Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kings Cross, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ITV (Kings Cross, England (UK)).

    Interview

    One written interview (questions below)

    One phone interview, usual chat about my CV and why I was leaving my current role and why I like testing.

    One interview in person in their London offices near Kings Cross.

    Interviewer was a woman who took a lot of time telling me how tired/stressed she was. As the interview went on, she also told me how much work she had to do more than once.

    Then, to my surprise, she mocked the person who had her role before her and went on to talk disparagingly of other candidates for turning up late, being nervous etc. I was hoping she did it to relax me but afterwards I think she did it because she is not a very sympathetic person.

    More questions about my background but I found it hard to engage with her and felt it was hard to hold her attention. She played a lot with her clothes and hair as well as looking out the glass windows to the atrium below.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not like the interviewer. I felt I was offered the job as just a number and none of my 4 years of testing experience was taken into consideration. I was also promised feedback on my interview within 3 days whereas in reality, it took 7.. In the meantime, I accepted another role with a company who impressed me when I went to interview with them.
