    Sales Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Luton, East of England, England (UK)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Leonardo (Luton, East of England, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Very simply, well arranged and organised. Unfortunately, despite assurance from the interview panel that I would be informed of the result within one week..... no such information has been passed on. Shame on the Leonardo interview team for giving such assurance and then not having the politeness in seeing the recruitment process through to the end.

    Human Resources Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Leonardo (Luton, East of England, England (UK)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Three weeks between being notified an interview was granted and the actual interview taking place was a pretty long wait. Questions for interview preparation not answered - I thought perhaps the recruiter was to blame, but having got some very helpful info the evening before the interview day, realised it was Leonardo people and not the recruiter. I did not even know whether I would be allowed to take my laptop with me.
    The interview itself was fine, though too long was spent over my history, so left no time to explore the job I might have been doing. Followed by a presentation, also fine and all the people I met on the day were friendly and warm.
    I emailed one interviewer to personally thank them for their time and received no response at all. It was three weeks before I had any feedback (not even being notified I hadn't got the job - though by that time I had seen it re-advertised!). When the feedback referred to the presentation as an 'exam question', combined with the lack of information, I feel I have had a luck escape!
    Not a good candidate experience - I just hope it's very different once you're employed there.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Leonardo (Luton, East of England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    very elaborate application which if you were successful, you had to complete online tests, this was then followed by an assessment centre, which consisted of two days, a hotel stay and everything all expenses paid. Day 1 was an ice breaker, allowing you to learn about the company and meet all the other candidates which was very helpful making you feel comfortable, this was followed by dinner with some of the graduates which was good for advice. Day 2 consisted of; a group-work task, an interview, a written assessment, in the form of an essay which you had to write in an hour, and presentation which was 15 mins long. I was then contacted 2 days after the assessment centre about the result

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Leonardo (Luton, East of England, England (UK)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Recruitment process was very slow. It took over 3 weeks to process my application and then a further 2 weeks before being invited for interview. The interview was split into two phases. Phase one is a question and answer session on your CV. Phase two is competency based. It would serve you well to practice these online beforehand.

    Interview Questions

    • Where did you find out about the position?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They have set parameters to work within and negotiating is not really too much of an option. Don't undervalue yourself in the first instance because negotiating once you're in is really difficult

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Leonardo (Luton, East of England, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I received an email from the employer, inviting me to an assessment centre day in Luton. My overall experience was very positive.

    The day began at 13:00, with a fairly straightforward and relaxed technical interview. I then moved on to a group exercise with two other candidates, in which we were asked to build a 0.5m tower capable of holding a rubber ball using only spaghetti and marshmallows. Finally, I was asked to give a pre-prepared presentation on one of three topics, also including reasons they should employ me.

    The day ended with a short tour of the facilities, and time to chat casually with the staff about working at Selex.
