    Busineess Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in City of Westminster, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at XLN (City of Westminster, England (UK)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Quick response and long interview process it took over 4 hours to get through and at the end of it. You were interviewed 1 2 1 with one of the core managers in the company in front the other applicants. Very different strategy to what I'm used to. I think a lot of people would fall under pressure but if your a sales person then you wont have the issue in making it into XLN at all. Do I like how they handled the process no. Personally I think it takes way too long. That's just my personal perception to be honest. I would go in to interview with time for the whole day and have an open mind about what you could be signing up for.

    Interview

    Phone call
    Then face to face interview
    I thought the interview was unprofessional. I waited for 15-30 mins in the reception. Dress of other employees was unprofessional. The interviewer asked personal unnecessary questions

    Administrative Interview

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at XLN (London, England (UK)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. I was interviewed the same week that I was contacted and offered the day after my interview. The hiring manager and recruiter were extremely friendly. I was interviewed by the hiring manager only, which i found very calming as interviews can be extremely nerve-wrecking especially when there are a few people interviewing you.
