    Regional Human Resources Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wincanton (Worsley, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    General competency based questions. Found out at the interview that the role I was being interviewed for was not the one I had applied for. Different competencies and experience required, which is a shame as I had prepared based on the one I had applied for. 3 weeks on and I have received no feedback, despite emailing to ask. I feel as if my time has been disrespected, both in preparing and in attending. This was a job I was excited about. I used a days leave to attend. The lack of communication afterwards has left a sour taste in my mouth. Not good practice Wincanton.

    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Wincanton (London, England (UK)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was a two tier interview process, I only got to stage one, which was competency and experience based.
    After this stage I got rejected. This was communicated with the standard one line e-mail about the high caliber of other applicants.
    After meeting in person at the interview, in my view, they should have taken the courtesy of informing me over the phone and providing feedback.
