    Pensions and Benefits Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Capita (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process lasted a little over 2 hours. We performed data checking and mathematics tests, and then went through the competency based interview. The interview was a 'speed interview' format, where we went from station to station answering a competency based question at each station. I personally did not enjoy this type of interview, especially as it was poorly organised with respect to moving people on to the next station in a timely fashion.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capita in July 2017.

    Very very difficult, they use the stupid competency based system which I cannot handle. I cannot sell my skills and experience. I read their guidance notes but I still could not do it, this competency system is stupid and it is rubbish and you are getting the wrong staff.

    Graduate Student Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capita (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This was my first ever interview for a graduate role, though I have worked for 10 years and went to university late so I have had many job interviews before. Online application and Telephone interview . The interviewer puts you on mute while you talk which is the most surreal experience as you're talking into silence. My interviewer was like a robot, he didn't engage with me on a human level and he made me feel incredibly uncomfortable. This is a horrible, emotionless experience. I know Capitas HR team will be reading this so I suggest quite strongly that you rethink this process and STOP scrutinising people who look up websites such as this to help understand the interview process and questions. Not all of us were born giving interviews, so give us a break please!

    Its been 4 months since I had this telephone interview and I've heard nothing... I have sent emails with as much referencing to my interview as I could offer but there is no reply. Not even a peep.

    CAPITA, if you had offered me a position based on this interview I would have declined anyway. I felt disrespected by you which had a negative impact on my next interview and my self confidence as I have waited months for you to at least tell me how I did...

    Associate Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capita (London, England (UK)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a senior role within new Digital Practice, labelled as ‘the division which will secure the future of Capita’. After three months of interviews with four different partners, I was made an offer but the terms were significantly different to the ones I was originally presented with. I asked them to improve the offer and after a few days, I was told that a reviewed offer would be shared either that day or the following day. A couple of hours later, I was asked to meet the executive leader of the division the following day ‘just as a formality’, with no real flexibility due to his busy schedule. This executive had no awareness of my previous interviews and showed no willingness to have me on board. A couple of hours after this interview, I was told by HR that they had decided not to hire anyone for that role.

    This is just a small summary of the way my process was conducted and I do hope that my situation does not repeat with future candidates. My perception however is that there are too many internal power fights and a lack of strategy. Time will tell but from the time being, their future is dubious and I am glad to be out of there.
