    Interview Questions

    • Basic stuff, they did a Google search, interviewed by Hamid Ali, long time employee who worked his way up through the ranks to manager. An excellent supervisor, he patted you on the head when you were good and diplomatically slapped you down when you did something stupid. Once he did that, it was over and you moved on. No residual carry over. Great respect for him, a very effective supervisor.   1 Answer

    Graduate Scheme Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Pendragon (Derby, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    online application, video interview then assessment centre.

    my overall opinion of the assessment centre: It was run as if the assessors had been on an assessment centre the day before and had attempted to replicate it the following day with little time to prepare.

    It just seemed to be a bit cobbled together and did't run smoothly. People were interrupted during one task and asked to complete another, everybody was talking during the tasks, the time limits set during the tasks weren't adhered to and there was a general laissez faire feel to the day. This is the 4th assessment centre I've attended but was arguably the worst run. Whilst the assessors were nice enough, the day didn't show the company in a positive light and left me with the impression that its a company that I wouldn't want to work for.

    This was my general impression of the day but a few of the other people there on the day seemed to enjoy the relaxed approach. If I had travelled a long way, I would have been pretty annoyed.
