    Digital Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sheffield, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yell (Sheffield, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The Interview process was really quick and straight forward, Marc in Talent Acquisition was really helpful with the whole process. I had to apply, have a telephone interview, do some on line tests then go for a face to face meeting with a prepared presentation. A great experience and I feel I was dealt with very well throughout.

    Digital Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yell (Manchester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Tough - Do your research and know your stuff. Everybody is friendly and extremely professional but you need to be on the ball. There is a telephone interview with a role play, two online tests and a personality test. Then I met with the regional manager and my now line manager and went through introductions, a pre-prepared presentation, two more role plays and more questions. All in all it was a challenging process but really worth it now I am here.

    Head/Director of Consumer Products Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yell (Reading, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by the Head of Talant Acquisition after they had seen my profile on LinkedIn and looked to be a good fit for their role. I was not looking for my next move but felt it was a good opportunity so was happy to have an initial discussion about their needs & my experience.
    Initial telephone interview. Useful for both side to establish the full details of the role and requirements. Open and constructive questions and answers.
    Was told that they would prepare a shortlist for a face to face... Never heard anything, chased once, Yell did not even afford the courtesy of of a reply - even to say 'no thanks'.

    Very poor experience. Yell approached me and I gave up time to find out more about the company & the role only to be blanked when I followed up for feedback. Next time, don't bother, there are places I'd rather work.

    May 26, 2017 – Head of Talent Acquisition

    I am disappointed to learn that your interview experience with Yell was ‘very poor’ and I take full responsibility for that. This is certainly not typical of our business. We have received a ... More

    Interview

    I can honestly say this was the best interview process I have ever been through. The in-house recruiter, Dora, was a fantastic point of contact for Yell and kept me completely informed throughout the whole process. Clear expectations were set throughout, promises were kept regarding contact and updates and everyone I met was friendly and engaging. A great recruitment experience.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yell (Scarborough, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of four stages. First you will take part in a spelling and grammar test. Then a formal interview where you will be asked 6 questions which test your ability to think on your feet. The third stage is a telephony exercise as the job is telephone based, you will be given a scenario and you have to act as the DCSE in order to get as much info as possible off the person on the phone. The fourth stage is a copy writing exercise. You use the info gathered from the phone call to write a homepage for a website.

    Field Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cobham, Surrey, South East England, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yell (Cobham, Surrey, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had a really positive experience, mainly due to the fantastic approach of Mark Cull, Head of Talent Acquisition. Mark was supportive, positive, and a great ambassador for the Yell brand.

    The process involved an initial phone screening with Mark, followed by online personality and aptitude tests. I was then invited to a face to face interview, but had to turn down the job before the face to face (as I accepted an offer elsewhere.)

    Interview Questions

    • The personality testing which I undertook was an interesting new approach. For c 50 questions (online) I was not only asked for my own honest responses, but an indication of what I thought the preferred responses of the employer would be. Very interesting, and a very honest approach.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yell in February 2017.

    Interview

    A professional, efficient process from the very start. Time line of events:

    - Applied for the role via a job board, received a prompt response the next morning from the in-house recruiter. This was a fairly informal conversation to discuss the opportunity/my background in a bit more detail before setting up a more formal call
    - This was a competency based phone interview scheduled for two days later
    - The next stage was to complete two online assessments, one psychometric test and the other a general intelligence quiz
    - The following day I was given detailed feedback and we then set up a final panel interview/presentation
    - I was then offered the position the following morning!

    Very impressed with the entire process, well done Team Yell!
