    IT Engineer-Team Leader-Nottingham Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at iomart (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Absolutely Terrible. Frankly appealed with their conduct. Initially I have received a phone call for interview with the HR lady based in Glasgow. We have organised it for 16:00. I have to call her at 16:10 because she thought the interview was for 16:30 and finally make it with my actions. She mention that she will come back to me the next working day. After a week, I have received an email for a skype interview. The interviewer didn't came in our meeting and I have called her and arrange for me an interview for the next working day at the same day. The next day happen exactly the same and after my complaints she has mention that he will call me. I have received a call and he drop off the phone after 20 seconds. I have tried to call on this number 4 times with no response. After that, I have arrange an official complaint on the relevant department. They come back to me the next working day that it was my mistake and I have drop off the phone according to their manager. Seems that they have already make an offer on this position and just play with candidates. The worst business process I have never seen and heard in my life.

    Please take care as all the fake reviews on this page are coming from their behalf. Terrible business to work for.

    Marketing & Sales Insight Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at iomart (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Once I had applied online, that same day iomart was in contact with me, informing me that they had received my application and they would be in contact if I got an interview.
    From there, I was then phoned to come in for an interview and was given options of when they had available slots.
    It was a very relaxed and comfortable interview. It was more like a conversation than being grilled.

    IT Technical Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at iomart (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)).

    Interview

    Telephone interview and then assessment centre (3 tier)

    Telephone interview consisted of competency based questions
    Assessment centre was more about technical and customer service/support skills
    Very little info provided about the job, pay, and job duties, etc.

    The main thing were the three tests that were prepared, it was a bit hectic as it was not really organised well.

    Interview Questions

    • 3 tier: customer support, technical and grammar/spelling test

      Technical was by far the hardest questions were meant to understand if training was necessary and to what level.

      Question e.g.
      -For what is POP and IMAP used and what are the differences between these?
      -Difference between shared, virtual and dedicated server? - related to a web hosting facility

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at iomart (Maryhill, Scotland (UK)) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Single face to face interview. Small confined room. Very little information provided about the job by the interviewer who will most likely be your direct manager.

    Was given a random technical test with some competency questions thrown in.

    Interview Questions

    • List 3 things required to setup an email account?

      This question is not asked in any specific context, they do not specify whether referring to adding an account in a client, creating an account through some form of control panel, adding via a mail server etc. so it is very difficult to answer.
