    Field Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Personal Group in June 2016.

    Interview

    At first glance the two gentlemen and lady present at the interview where very nice and inviting. We where felt to feel at ease. Unfortunatley i was not offered the role soley i beleive for being muslim and proud of that. It didnt sit too comfortably with them and i think its an absaloute disgrace that an strong canditate proud of his faith would be seen as a threat to the cohesion of the company.This company really needs to have a good luck at itself.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Personal Group (Manchester, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Turn up, broken down into 4 parts, started with about 8 and finished on 3 who got the job including myself. Pretty easy and relaxed, standard for a sales job to be fair, but they literally lie all the way through to get you all excited about the job. Standard sell me an item, pitch me a favourite place and so on.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Personal Group (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview experience was really good. From submitting an application onward the recruitment team called me every so often to check how I was and how I was getting on with Interview prep which I felt was a really nice personal touch. The first interview was with HR to get to know me and go through my CV. The second interview was with the Head of HR and Commercial Director which was more specific to the role and the type of work I would be doing.

    Interview Questions

    • Before my second interview, I was given a project brief and had to create a Marketing Plan to present to the HR Director and Commercial Director. I was given about a week before the interview to prepare this.   Answer Question
