    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Imperial Brands (Kingston upon Thames, England (UK)) in October 2009.

    Interview

    The first step :On advertisement I sent my CV and waited for some sort of communication from them.

    Second step : I recieved a call from the recruiter for the telephonic interview time and date confirmation.

    Third steop: As I did in tele phonic interview I was called for pre -assessment center face to face interview

    Fourth step: If I will be short listed for the assessment center I will get a call or email.

    Basically In Telephonic interview it was quite simple , as they asked few questions like

    Why do you want to join this company

    and rest they were more perticular about the Driving licence, do you have full clean driving lic. Do you have any points on that, like questions

    Lastly they asked , if I will be ready to work on evenings and weekends if it is required, if Can i stay overnight out of London.

    As I performed at this stage well they called me for the next stage;

    Next stage was 1to 1 pre assessment center meet.

    questions were like

    Why have you applied for this position ?

    Can you remember some situation were you have given commitment and sticked to it. How your
    commitment was helpful in boosting your sales ?

    Have you ever helped your colleagues while you were also working, how you did it ?

    Have you ever know the business needs of the customer, how you have worked to get your benefit for it?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Imperial Brands (Madrid (Spain)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had a test, 1:1 interview and invitation to the Assessment center. The test was ok, there are many preparation websites, they really help. The interview was good, they gave me 2 small cases to solve (on tobacco topic), and asked many general questions. The most nervous part was assessment center, we spent the whole working day, doing presentation and lots of exercises in their office. Even though I didn't pass, I enjoy the process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imperial Brands in February 2018.

    Interview

    I have applied on the February 2018. The process is pretty simple: online application, some games as psychometric test, video interview question with some questions about day-to-day scenarios you might face it if you join the programme and finally the assessment day.
    I stop in the video interview as I couldn't understand the question and I could not replay. It was a guy talking with a terrible accent and they would not show the question written. It is pretty stupid to put some guys with too much accent without laying down the question too, just in case people all around the world not be an accent expert......
