    Graduate Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milton Keynes, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at ISBAN (Milton Keynes, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Initials screenings subcontracted to recruited under the name of Technet. Involved an online assesment, a telephone interview, and an in person interview. At the interview, they told me the negative glassdoor reviews are lies. This was followed by an assesment centre. My interviewer barely spoke english, felt like speaking to Manuel from Faulty Towers. There appears to be a serious cultural problem in this company, seems to be run by the spanish. This was followed by a month long wait. Then they told me I had been successful and was being recommended for an offer, and they'd get back to be in 2 weeks. Its now been 3 months, and they've constantly kept saying they have been delayed. I dont know what the outcome will be, but I dont think I shall be joining this joke of a company, and will recommend to all my friends that they stay far away from it.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at ISBAN in October 2008.

    Interview

    Awkward interview with a project manager that did not know how to interview people.
    Interview was postponned several times by the project manager since he was "too busy" doing other things. On the actual interview the questions were made in an unprofessional matter and I was constantely interrupted by the interviewer.

    Additionally, I was contacted right after the interview saying that the feedback was very positive. And only heard more feedback after almost a month. Was lied by the recruiter manager who told me i was going to get an offer from a specific role, and when the offer came through the offer was for a much inferior role/position.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - I would look around for alternative jobs since they promise things with their offer that are not true like a 6month pay review that does not happen.
