    Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society (Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    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

    No one in their right mind would like to work for this manager who missed 3 appointments and is misrepresenting the facts (rather lying) when he says "he has advised he has emailed and text you but hasn’t received a response".

    Assistant Management Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Interview

    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.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    It took two months from application date to arrange for a face to face interview. It lasted two and half hours including a test.

    Two months after my interview I received the outcome. The entire process took 6 months. Very disappointing experience and glad I didn't go for the job in the end.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yorkshire Building Society (Leeds, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview process was formal but slighty offensive. They started well but things changed after 30 minutes or so. Not sure if questions are asked to any candidate or just salespeople.
