    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RWE npower (Solihull, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online; received an invite for half-an-hour telephone interview with the recruiting managers; after the successful telephone interview, was invited for a 2 hour face-to-face interview. The f2f interview had about 45mins dedicated to a case scenario presentation followed by generic questions and then competency questions. The interviewers didn't seem to be interested in my answers as I noticed them looking around or lost in their own thoughts. The questions themselves were confusing and weren't in your normal competency format where one could apply the STAR method - something that was advertised beforehand. The moment I left the building, I knew it was a wastage of time.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at RWE npower (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Extremely informal, to the point where hardly any questions were asked. Location was poor, as there were many people around. No privacy. Also, they did not go through my CV at all, as it was clear from what was being asked, and there was no structure whatsoever with the questions.

    Utterly disgusting treatment...

    I applied for a role in Leeds as a Business Analyst. This was a 3 mth contract although I am aware that permanent positions may have been available.

    The interview for the role however, was in Solihull. No offer of travel expenses was made, despite me being unemployed, so I spent 2 days negotiating with the jobcentre to pay for my travel. Equally, no offer of a Skype interview was made either.

    I travelled from Sheffield to Birmingham, walked round to Moor Street station, got on the train to Solihull, only to receive a call from the interviewer, stating that there were not enough people for the panel. Why this took until noon when they had been in all Morning and would've known before I started to travel, is beyond me. No offer of travel expenses was made, although they did offer to pay for the next interview, which was likely to take place in Leeds.

    I was offered another date but informed the interviewer I would need to check my diary, as I had a week of interviews. I was then told to communicate with HR. I arrived back home from a wasted trip, and emailed HR confirming my availability for a future date. I also had to request confirmation that the interview had been cancelled, in order to comply with my jobseekers agreement. All I got back was an email stating they would be in touch. That was over 2 weeks ago. I sent a reminder asking for an update on the rescheduled date, and over 10 days later, I have no reply.

    I do not recall being asked if I needed any adjustments as a disabled person for this interview. I have now emailed HR to state I am putting up this review and am nothing short of disgusted at their behaviour and treatment of me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RWE npower (Leeds, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an interview request about a week later - face to face but I know they do phone interviews too, so I assume there's a criteria and hose on the fringe get the phone interview first. Competency based interview, around ten questions - mix of around 'how do you...' Questions designed to test your knowledge and 'tell me about a time when...' Situational competency based questions. There was nothing totally surprising or that people would struggle with.

    Interviewers were at ease, conversed well and it didn't feel high pressure or uncomfortable. There was no presentation needed.

    Heard back 4 business days later with an offer.
