    Marketing Specialist/Digital Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coventry, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Coventry Building (Coventry, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Where to start. I applied for the Digital Specialist role via an agency and got a rejection. I was then approached by a different agency for a Marketing Specialist role and got a rejection before I'd even submitted my CV - weird. A month later I was asked to come in for an interview for the Digital Specialist role - a role I was rejected from 2 months earlier. Interview lasted an hour and was intense. The two interviewers were very unfriendly and didn't make me feel comfortable at all. We all crammed into a tiny room and they were very direct in their line of questioning. The company felt very faceless, which is false advertising on their part - "TLC not PLC". Almost 3 weeks later, I haven't had any feedback at all despite the agency chasing it. I've now accepted an offer somewhere else and feel quite relieved to tell the truth. For a company that size, it was a really poor experience.
