What do you enjoy more in a company? Having fun, having stability, or being assertive. Remember you have to choose two options !

2 Answers

This isn’t correct. The question is what is most important and what is least important amongst the three. It is basically getting you to list them in order Less

Whatever combination you chose can be wrong, especially if the same question occurs again, but this time with a different set of answers, where one can option can be the same, but the others rephrased: What do you enjoy more in a company? Relations with collegues, being proactive or having fun. Again by having to choose two and not having a don't know/don't answer option you end up choosing things that do not represent your opinions.

Would you say your body language changes when you are on the telephone ???

Very well and all the rest of the questions and after been in the Interview for over a hour was introduced to the Financial Controller Kay and had a chat with her. I had a Interview lasting hour and 20 mins. The update after the interview a huge disappointment compared to when they wanted you to attend the Interview and If this is how they waste your time and money travelling for the Interview. To be told they looking for a graduate or someone just starting their career when this is not mentioned on the job advertisement and for the experience they require for the role seems untrue. I was promised by recruitment they would get me a proper answer and update me and this never happened after 2 weeks and no definite confirmation I did not or did get the role. They cannot be a good company to work for if this how they treat people who have allocated time and effort for a role they wanted. co founders Chris Jelf 2 fold vision regarding building relationships does not ring true and maybe he needs re-train staff on his vision Less

Same here a wasted Interview and mis-lead and no feedback after the Interview and the roles still advertised. I office I walked through for the interview was so quiet that you could hear a in drop. Im glad i did not get the role If that's how quiet you have to be in the office, like been at school !!! Less
