    Graduate Project Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Legal & General Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    L&G used a recruiter called CityGrad. The process was very poorly run, it was ambiguous and last minute and didn't reflect well on L&G. I'm sure L&G are a good recruiter but they made a bad chose with their recruiter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Legal & General Group (Cardiff, Wales (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Group assessment centre, 24 applicants crammed into one small room. Put into pairs and had to tell the rest of the group 3 interesting facts about your partner. Were then split into 3 groups of 8 and told to choose 3 items that would be needed if stranded on a desert island. One person from each group had to then tell the rest of the room. Assessment finished. The two ladies taking the assessment didn't seem to know what they were doing and must have chosen the successful applicants at random.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Legal & General Group.

    Interview

    It is a company I would avoid like a plague. The interview process is total BS. The recruitment team will send a pack that requires a presentation and role play. The pack is confusing so you call them recruitment team. It came to shock that they were unsure what was being asked. The interviewers were disengaged and couldn't be bothered.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Legal & General Group.

    Interview

    I sent my CV and was given a short telephone interview. I was then told the next stage would be to attend their assesment center in Birmingham. On the day of attending, I felt the actual assesment center was being run by a bunch of uneducated friends. Not very professional whatsoever.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Legal & General Group.

    Interview

    Applied via online application form - submitted CV and Cover Letter
    Invited to take online tests
    Invited to first round interview - I was interviewed by the would-be manager and a fellow colleague. The interview lasted an hour and the two men were easy to talk to, welcoming and informative. They told me more about the role and answered my questions thoroughly and clearly. They seemed interested in me as an individual. The interview was competency based.
    Although the role sounded interesting, it wasn't quite as I had expected from reading the job description. The interviewers were very informative about the role because they were directly in the team which I thought was useful, however I feel a bit more information about the department in which the role sits could have been put on the job description.
    (If successful, there would have been a second round interview)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Legal & General Group (Birmingham, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Didn't apply directly. Applied via agency and got an email the day before for a group interview. Interview was in a group of about 7/8 people with 3 staff members from the company who also applied through the agency. (Pontoon I think it was called) Consisted of some group activities such as introducing yourself, talking to the person next to you, team work exercise (which was ridiculous - the activity was which team could build the biggest paper tower with the strongest structure) and then brief 1-1 interview with competency based questions
