Average Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at John Lewis & Partners (London, England (UK)) in September 2017.

Interview

Contacted through specialist resource agency and interview was mixed face-to-face and conference call. Agenda ran through background and positioning of existing programme and project activity of which one project was highlighted were there was a skill shortage and hence the reason that the interview was taking place.

Interview Questions

  • Competency based interview on project management skills but the style did not follow behavioural criterion based questions. So would not ask the questions "Give me an example when you did [X] and show how it might relate to [the business/subject area for the role.? Then followed by "What were the challenges you faced and how did you resolve them?" with final last question "Were you successful?"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at John Lewis & Partners in February 2016.

    Interview

    Very uncomfortable interview. They were concentrating on filling in the document more than getting to know about my experience or where I could be a potential fit. At one point they asked a question and were both on their phone/laptop without taking an active interest in the answer. I have interviewed many people before, but never made them feel uncomfortable even if they werent the right person for the job. In a way, its good to know their culture beforehand as interviews work both ways for the company as well as the candidate.
