    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Telegraph Media Group (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    First stage was an interview with the hiring manager, second stage was a presentation task with the hiring manager and a product manager and the third (and final) stage was a Skype interview with CCO (about 30 minutes).

    Generally really positive- everyone was very friendly and the interviews weren't too formal, more conversational. Heard back quickly after each stage.

    Talent Development Partner (Interim) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Telegraph Media Group (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Screening with recruitment agency followed by 2 stage interview process which involved meeting 6 people.

    Excessive recruitment process for interim role. Goal posts shifted so at the first stage I interviewed for one job and the second was for another role. First I was told it was for 3 month contract then 9 months on a temp to perm basis! It felt like an interview for a perm role all along and did not feel appropriate to be formally interviewed / grilled by HRBP's as a senior HR candidate who has managed this level of staff in a previous role - not very impressed! It would have been more fitting for it to have been an informal chemistry meeting. There was also a inappropriate comment made during the interview in relation to the existing talent function which did not sit well and I felt was unprofessional.

    The feedback received post-interview made absolutely no sense. It sounded like it was made up! I've come away feeling like it probably would not have been a good fit so they made the right decision.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Telegraph Media Group (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    First it was online test on the hackerrank.
    Then there was a screening telephone interview. Then another phone interview to explain about the systems, which they asked too much in detail and had to invent somet things not to break the confidentiality agreement. In the end they just disapeared and no answer, which is very unprovesional.
    Waste of time.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Telegraph Media Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied online. Had two interviews within a week of each other with my direct line manager, plus another senior member of the team. Between the two interviews, I was asked to complete a written test which took me about 6 hours (involved having to come up with feature ideas, demonstrate commissioning skills and sub-edit an article). Good communication between me and HR. Offer came the day after the second interview.

    IT Solutions Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Telegraph Media Group (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Two face-to-face interviews with a business case exercise and presentation to IT Solutions Architecture leadership.
    Offer was made below my current package that they were aware of the values from the beginning. During the negotiation process they just disappeared and never heard any more from them. Tremendously unprofessional their attitude. Very disappointing experience.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Telegraph Media Group (London, England (UK)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Relaxed interview. Assessments in spelling, editing, news knowledge etc. Friendly interview with just a nice conversation. We had to do a presentation about our most compelling piece of media we saw that month and then we had some tests which was relaxed. It was a really fun day. We got free vouchers for breakfast (or a drink) and for lunch.
