    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Schroders (United Kingdom) in Oct 2021

    Interview

    Structured workplace judgement test: The process takes place through a hypothetical chatbox formula where you select answers based on the fictional colleagues situation and which response (of a list of 3) you deem most appropriate.
    Logical reasoning test: 6 minutes to solve as many of the problems as possible.
    Personality Questionnaire: 55 questions. You are given two statements and had to choose which one you agreed with the most on a scale of 1-3, 1 being somewhat agree to 3 being completely agree. Schroders stipulate that you have to answer the questions 'honestly'. I take issue with this last section the most. I felt that this questionnaire had lots of personal statements that didn't pertain to the role at hand e.g. "I need branded clothing to show that I am successful" and whether or not I am in touch with my feelings. These were two examples of many. The statements themselves swayed between workplace scenarios and personal statements that I did not feel comfortable answering. In addition, I would frequently agree with both statements or disagree with both, however was unable to click an option to display this opinion. Thanks to this, the results drew massive inferences which were vastly inaccurate in their nature and painted a false portrait of who I am. Should I have had a face-to-face interview, I would have displayed the qualities that the results claimed I didn't have and they would get a better grasp of me as a person rather than a poor man's DiSC assessment.
    Lastly, the 'honesty' part. How can one be sure of the quality of Schroders recruitment if the results of this 'psych test' determine whether you reach the next stage? With the results I have obtained, it is evident I would have to lie to reach the next stage. Is this what a prominent investment firm wants from their applicants?
    Interview

    'I need expensive clothing to show my success' versus 'I need to use flattery to progress' A significant portion of the questions were about flattery for either your own personal progress or towards senior management.
