    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yell.

    Interview

    Terrible, conservative, patronizing atmosphere. Interviewers were very stiff and formal in their approach. The interviewers looked positively confused about the company name hibu. The process is in 2 stages. If they don't like you they make a silly excuse like the interviewers had to leave early, very unprofessional. Obviously, the interviewers did not like me and yet they still asked me back second stage.

    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yell (Reading, England (UK)) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Four interviews in total. Phone interview with HR first then hiring manager. If both of the phone interviews are fine, you will have to complete kinda IQ test, where speed means a lot, then face to face interview. If you pass that as well, you will receive an offer. Phone interviews are easy, IQ test is very simple but you have to be as fast as you can cause that is the only thing counts.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Yell (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Was an extremely relaxed and pleasant interview. It was more like a friendly chat with no annoying corporate stereotypical interview questions. Most probably because both interviews were done by managers rather than HR people.

    Interview Questions

    • As unhelpful as it is - I can't recall any uncomfortable questions - it was a friendly chat, rather than anything else.   Answer Question

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cobham, Surrey, South East England, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yell (Cobham, Surrey, South East England, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was really impressed with Yell's interview process.

    I got a call the same day I sent my application, and it only took 9 days to go from application to job offer.

    It's really important to me to work for in a company/role that is a good fit, and although it all happened so quickly I felt very well-informed about what the role involves. I appreciated all of the information on their careers website and their video content too, very helpful for prep and getting a feel for what the job - and the interview process - involves.

    Their communication was really clear, which meant I knew exactly what was expected of me at each stage and what would come next. This gave me the feeling that they really want good people to apply and join the company.

    The final presentation/role-play/interview was very tough at times, but completely fair and I was delighted to get through it and accept the job offer!

    This was the process for me:

    1. CV-based application
    2. Telephone screening call
    3. Telephone interview
    4. Intelligence/aptitude test (online)
    5. Personality profile test (online)
    6. Final face to face interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yell.

    Interview

    Telephone interview then interview and role play presentation
    Interview was by sales managers who clearly did not understand HR rules as they asked very inappropriate questions. I left the interview feeling as if I did not want to work for this company and only wish I had followed my intuition.
