    Entretien de Complaints Team Leader

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Yorkshire Building Society (Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en mars 2020.

    Entretien

    Full Assessment Day 9:30-3pm. Started with meeting the other 12 Candidates. We were then split into two teams of 6. We were given a scenario and a lot of information and the goal was to shine as the stand out leader. Second we had either the 121 interview which was competency based as expected, then an hours written assignment with a scenario- what would you do... they wanted your thoughts, ideas and then a written plan. It’s fair to say competition was tough. But a well organised day, everything clearly communicated and it brought the best out of the top candidates.

    Entretien

    Application process took a few weeks and I was invited to an assessment centre after a short telephone discussion. I was unable to change the date offered for the assessment centre despite being given very short notice. The assessment centre would be an interview followed by a group exercise.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • The interview was a 'speed dating' type of set-up. This is different to many interviews but had some benefits, such as not having to sit with the same person if you felt you didn't do well. The questions asked were extremely vague and sometimes so long you couldn't remember every aspect. A massive amount of jargon was used, and when I asked for clarity on a comment about 'agile' working (hot-desking etc or agile project management) it appeared the term had been used without the person 100% understanding the meaning. The heavy use of jargon continued into the group exercise and became more like 'buzz-words' than anything with actual meaning.

      My main issue is that it was incredibly clear that the business wished to recruit one of the two internal candidates and were not interested in the four external candidates. One of YBS' pros is the retention of staff and recruiting internally so this shouldn't be a surprise. Their intention was clear from the confirmation there would only be one assessment centre, conversations with the internal candidate and their experience with interviews at YBS, and from the feedback I received from the interview, which was that other candidates had answered the questions in a STAR format and then gone onto what they would do differently and what they could bring to a similar scenario if they were successful. Combined with my conversations with an internal candidate, this heavily suggested to me that the person had been coached or at least was very aware of what the business were looking for. The questions I was asked were very very vague and, without confirmation of otherwise in the interview invitation, I prepared my answers solely using the STAR format as I have done for every other interview.

      Overall I understand the reasons for advertising and interviewing externally, but I had to take a full day off work for the three hour long assessment centre and to have my time wasted like that has left a very sour taste in my mouth. I left the interview knowing nothing more about the role or the company, and did not feel like the company knew any more about me. I was told I didn't fail the interview processes but other candidates scored higher, which I could fully accept if it was not so clear that the intention was always to hire an internal candidate.   Répondre à cette question

    Entretien de Leader

    Employé anonyme - Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Offre d'embauche acceptée
    Expérience négative

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 1 jour. J'ai passé un entretien à Yorkshire Building Society (Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en avril 2019.

    The interview process was ridiculous. You are required to make a presentation prior to attending an assessment centre (full day 9am to 4pm)
    The process starts with a group activity whereby you interpret data and present back to observers - this is a mixed ability and mixed experienced group this takes 1.5 hours

    Following the presentation you are requested to present the presentation submitted prior to interview then asked 12 questions competency based back to back ( not asked why you would like the job or what you would bring to YBS or what experience you have)

    Following this you have a written test very similar to the first group activity except on your own.

    At no point does anyone ask your name, why you would be good in role, what experience you have.

    You are also expected to purchase your lunch from their run down staff canteen at your own expense.

    After this ordeal you will potentially be offered a job at 26k a year - I think not

    Entretien de Assistant Management Accountant

    First, it was an online application. The second stage was online tests both verbal and numeric . I made it to the next stage which was an interview and group work which lasted about 2 hours. The day was organised and I enjoyed it. However, disappointed that no feedback was provided despite requesting it. I was just ignored. It takes time, effort to prepare for these assessments. Also, money to travel as they do not reimburse travel expenses.
