    Training Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wincanton in July 2017.

    Interview

    Presentation, Workshop and Competency based.

    Interview held about 3 months prior to job starting! I attended as an external candidate with only 1 other (internal). The interviewing parties were expecting at least another 3 candidates but these were "no shows", I wonder why?

    The workshop and presentation part of the interview were a joke! 2 employees from the shop floor had to be bought in to bolster the numbers to make it realistic! Both the workshop and presentation were wholly irrelevant for a Training manager role. During the presentation (to validate what i do not know.....if you can present......This was a Training manager role!)

    Absolutely no feedback throughout the entire process and very very poor communication all round. to this day........STILL no feedback. Awful!!!
