    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    After submitting my CV had a brief chat on the phone about my current studies and interest in the job, was given details about the job and the company and invited to an interview at their offices which was half an hour long and relatively straightforward. Interviewer asked about what I enjoyed doing in my free time, my greatest achievement, gave me more information about the structure of the internship and gave me opportunity to ask questions, was more like casual chat.

    Interview

    I'd have to say I was incredibly disappointed with the interview process. I will explain why. Firstly it was quite a long winded process, it went from an initial telephone screening to video interview and final face to face interview (I missed the assessment day). When I arrived for my 1:1 interview, the receptionists initially got my name wrong (Even though I told them my name at arrival) and they thought I was attending the assessment day, it seemed that there was a lack of communication between the talent recruiters. Especially as I had to explain to them who I was in contact with regarding this 1:1 interview. I arrived around 20 minutes early for my interview, but when my interview time came, the interviewer was late. She then asked me about who I was in contact with, because I didn't attend an assessment day, and I told her about the emails I received from two talent recruiters.

    So my first impressions there weren't that great. The interviewer was lovely however but she was different from the one that I was assigned in the email to see. So clearly they did not plan for my arrival. I spoke to another gentleman at the end, as she had to go somewhere. The lady said I would get a response by the end of the day, but I didn't. I got one the next afternoon from the initial recruiter.

    A very disappointing response, it was a standard rejection email. But I expected much better from a company who progress someone quickly to the last round, but then don't provide any further details about why the lack of progression: This was just rude. The lack of communication between staff was irritating, because I expected much better from a company that is rapidly increasing. I knew the interview went well, because of the positive responses from the interviewer, but after the standard email rejection. Not sure, and I wouldn't want to apply to this company again. Too much false hope and pretension, as well as a lack of organisation. It seemed like they didn't even plan for my arrival with all the rushing around and unawareness of who I was, and who I was interviewing with. Too much carelessness.

    A word of advice is, if a candidate gets to the final stage of a job application, you should at least have the decency to tell them why they didn't progress. Especially when it comes to planning days off and budgeting, to travel into Central London. Anyone who has an interview with LFA, be cautious and make sure you take all the negative experiences into consideration, I overlooked it initially but shouldn't have.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at La Fosse Associates (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    La Fosse put you forward for jobs then never let you know if you've got the job or not even though you asked beforehand for feedback and they promised you this. Very poor service, feel as though they are just interested in the commission rather than the client or interviewee. Poor recruitment company to go through in my opinion.

    I was put in touch with La Fosse through a rec-2-rec and when I arrived the person I was supposed to interview with was not there and no one was expecting me. After waiting for almost half an hour I was brought into a tiny room for a very short interview in which they didn't even have my CV

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at La Fosse Associates (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    2 stages, didn't pass the 2nd so unsure after that. I enjoyed my first stage but after that La Fosse seemed very disorganised, and frankly disinterested in pushing it further. It was quite a messy process and who I was meant to see changed several times, which was concerning. They were very boastful about their laid back attitude and letting people 'be people' but everyone was in a suit/dress, working late, and it just didn't add up. Fake culture. I've since found something truly laid back and am already making a lot more money than I feel I would have made at La Fosse. A friend of mine also had a bad experience interviewing here. Would not consider it again.
