    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Shakespeare Martineau (Nottingham, England (UK)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Informal chat for first interview and then quickly provided feedback and a brief for the second interview. Second interview required a formal presentation to person who would be my line manager, the CEO and a solicitor. They were very quick in providing me an offer on the same day as second interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Shakespeare Martineau (Leicester, England (UK)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The first interview was an assessment centre. We had to participate in a group activity in which we had to make budget cuts to an imaginary car company, a written test of the areas the firm was excelling in and failing, and a presentation on our suitability to turn firm. A few weeks after that was the main interview, which last 3 hours.

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Shakespeare Martineau in July 2019.

    Interview

    An hour long interview with competency questions and a surprise assessment.

    It’s been over 3 weeks and not a single response.. it’s frustrating that candidates go through a lot to get a interview and the firm cannot even respond.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Shakespeare Martineau (Birmingham, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Had two interviews - the first with two members of staff on the department, and the second with the head of the department. The first interview was very positive, however in the second interview it was evident that the head of the department was uninterested. After the second interview, I received no further communications - not even an email to say that they had decided to go with another candidate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Shakespeare Martineau.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional with a lack of any procedure and formality. I was called back multiple times to meet with various people- the role seemed undefined and this was telling during the interview process as they couldn't answer a few of my questions about the role and expectations.
