    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Initial l conversation through hiring manager - fine.
    First stage interview with the head of marketing and comms was fairly relaxed and nice approach. Broke down the company and process and where the intention is from the job perspective as well as future goals.

    However - the interview went great, generally looked forward to the next stage. However. I followed up with the hiring manager - heard nothing. Then connected with the initial interviewer as she also said to reach out for more questions - no response. I called and emailed the hiring manager third time and again no response.

    There’s been no response for at least 3 weeks. For someone to take their time and not only travel to the location, research the company and take holiday to attend interview for NO update I think I am disappointed with how it has been handled as well shocked at the no response. It’s like they’re non-existent.

    With that said, the company and role still looks great and I would be keen to see what happened and the delay in getting back to interviewees.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am really disappointed to hear about your experience. I am investigating what happened at your interview and during the hiring process - I understand, one of the resourcing team did try and get hold of you via telephone and email but was unsuccessful. We have spoken to the hiring manager to review their approach to interviewing and why they thought it appropriate to talk about our customers in this way. Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and this is certainly not something we would condone. Thank you again for flagging this. Emma
