    Their HR team was very quick at organizing the interview. Make sure you know about their values! They asked a question about each one of the values and how you have showed these values before at work

    Insights Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Marks & Spencer (London, England (UK)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Don't bother - unprofessional, waste of time.
    Applied to a variety of roles through a recruiter. Got a first round interview for one. The weird thing is that I never got a yes or a no on any of them, it looks like the process just "went quiet" and the recruiter never managed to get any updates for me or any other candidate. Eventually we decided to just give up and wait for updates from them. I find this shocking, why do you even hire recruiters if you can't be bothered to tell them about whether the hiring is still progressing? and failing to provide an answer (not even feedback!) to people you met face to face is unprofessional
