    It was a thorough interview with behavioral questions, nothing unexpected. Strength, weakness, challenges, why you fit the role & do you like beer. It was all face to face 1:1.

    Training Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johannesburg (South Africa)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SABMiller (Johannesburg (South Africa)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Had a telephone interview with hiring manager, HR, and L&D specialist. After a couple of days I was invited to a panel interview, on the panel it was hiring manager and L&D specialist. After the interview I went for a 3 hour psychometric assessment, conducted by an industrial psychologist, which I must say was long, tiring but good. During the interview process, I also did a background check, which was conducted by HR, and was also asked to submit certified transcripts (to be verified) and pay slip. After 3 weeks having gone for the interview, my references were contacted, and was told I would receive feedback shortly on the outcome of interview process. Within a month and a week, I received my feedback from industrial psychologist regarding my assessments, which was positive as I learned more about myself, strengths, weaknesses and personality; but never heard back from HR regarding my feedback.

    At first the experience was positive (communication with HR, treatment, feedback from IO psychologist), but after some time it turned out to be negative (not receiving feedback from HR as promised after reference have been checked, even tried to get feedback, but no response was given).

    Information Security Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woking, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SABMiller (Woking, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    online application
    Telephone interview
    Face to face interview - they were running late even though I was the only person that day being interviewed, had to wait 45 minutes to be seen

    The interviewers were named Clare and Monty.
    Monty was very friendly and a pleasure to talk with.
    Clare was friendly but false, you could tell she did not enjoy her job.
    After the interview I was told that I would hear very soon and that it seemed positive. I got an email 1 week later from Clare saying she had my feedback and would be giving me a call shortly.
    I then never heard back. Dispite me later sending several emails asking when I would be getting my phone call and feedback Clare still did no let reply.
    This just shows the kind of care the woman has for her position and role within the company, and also reflects badly on the way that the company is allowed to operate (making arrangements for a phone call/communication and not even sending a curtousy email)
