    I have been impressed by the whole interview process. I have been supported by a Salli Hunt in a very professional and supportive manner. She has made the whole experience a very good one for me. From being able to contact her directly about any issues I had and gave me courtesy calls to check I was ok and ready to start my new career with yell.

    Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I was invited to attend a telephone interview. On the first occasion nobody called me at the agreed time. I emailed them in case they had tried the wrong number but they explained something had come up. We rearranged the interview for the following day. This time the same thing happened again. Not the kind of experience you would expect from a well respected company.
