    Development Officer (Higher Apprenticeship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sheffield, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Interserve (Sheffield, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Prepare a presentation, which I emailed and they didn't have. Competency based questions not relevant to the role, and an incomplete written task, which is one of the strangest things I have ever done

    Customer Service Leadership Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Bromwich, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Interserve (West Bromwich, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, then had to do numerous tests, had a telephone interview and then was selected to go to an assessment day.

    After we had all completed the assessment day, one of the recruiters called me the next day and told me that their higher management had told them to terminate all recruitment for graduate positions for this year. Just at the last hurdle after a long process all candidates were told the program was now cancelled. Very, very unprofessional. I would advise anyone to stay clear of applying to a position at this company

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Interserve (Birmingham, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very, very slow process and the communications process was almost non-existent! Real shame as the people seemed good. The whole thing could have been improved with a little forethought and planning.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Interserve (Birmingham, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    There were 4 rounds for the selection process. The first round is an online Math and Aptitude test. The second round is a telephonic interview, the third round is an online emotional IQ test and the 4th round is the graduate assessment day at the head office. The first round was a general math and english test that does not require any specialised knowledge. The second round, the telephonic interview is focussed on general questions about customer satisfaction and corporate aptitude. The emotional IQ test after that evaluates responses to specific scenarios. The final assessment day has a group discussion in which you are made to solve puzzles as a group, a personal interview with technical questions and a personal interview with HR.
