    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at IRIS Software Group (Manchester, England (UK)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    My experience of this company during my on site interview was pretty negative. On arriving at the building I was advised to go to the third floor where the company were based. The door to the office was wide open and so I walked in looking apologetic as there was no reception area - just banks of open office space and desks. Perhaps completely unrelated but when I caught the eye of some staff sitting at their desks they started laughing as if it happened all the time, yet nobody offered to assist.

    I ended up leaving the office and waiting outside - using the intercom of which nobody answered.

    A few minutes later I decided my only choice was to go back into the office and speak to the person closest to the door - it seemed like the last thing he wanted to do was assist me (perhaps he gets it a lot and its not his job!?). I apologised and explained that I had an interview, he took me to the canteen area and asked me to wait.

    I appreciate it was the end of the day however the kitchen was in an awful state with the bins overflowing and pots everywhere. Meanwhile I heard within the main office "someone is here for an interview at this time!?".

    Finally the person I had an interview with came to collect me, took me to a meeting room and we had a standard interview - it was obvious that no notes had been taken in the phone interview as I had to repeat multiple answers. Additionally throughout the whole process so far there had been no HR involvement. Bearing in mind the interview was right at the end of the day, once finished the office was empty (around 5:30pm). I dont know the hours of the company but again perception wise it seemed like nobody "goes the extra mile" and simply works contracted hours, maybe by this point I was looking for negatives!

    Looking back I now find it quite comical that this company (within the interview) classed itself as fundamental to the UK economy - I worry about our future, and I when nobody answered the intercom I probably should have left.

    PS I dont even know if I have been offered the job but hopefully the above shows that even before I sat down with the interviewer I decided this environment wasn't for me.
