    Digital Marketing Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Shaw Academy (Dublin, Co. Dublin).

    Interview

    One-off interview, with several half-hearted questions. The people responsible for interviewing me needed to get back to the floor to meet their targets and manage ongoing problems. It was brief, they (like most of the staff) were sound just unfortunate to be working in this awful company with its laughably bad senior management.

    Mobile Developer - Android Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bengaluru (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Shaw Academy (Bengaluru (India)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Absolutely horrible. I was contacted by the recruiter via phone call. There were 2 things that were not right, the network quality of the call and the attitude of the recruiter. Her voice was so much muffled that I had difficulty in understanding her and when I requested her to repeat something, I was given and answer that "you should move to a better network area". Still putting up with that I continued the call and again when it impossible to understand what she was saying, I again requested her and was given the answer "do you understand English?" and not to forget "I told you to go to a better network area, what is wrong with you". And after a minute more she cut the call abruptly.
    This is not just some daily chore that you will dump and try again another time. It is about the possible future of a candidate so maybe you should take it more seriously.
    To that recruiter, yes I can understand English very well and I am not hard of hearing, the problem is your attitude.

    Customer Service Representative/Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shaw Academy (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Walked into what into a group interview situtuation after being told by the "talent aquaisition" person that it would be a standard interveiw, going through the C.V etc.

    Everyone else in the room had came in though an external recruiter who had advised them fully on the process, what questions would be asked, that there would be a role play and even the specific activity that we would undertake as part of a group.

    I found this highly unprofessional on behalf of lady that invited me for the interveiw initially.

    Group interviews allow the person who shouts loudest to shine through, if these are the type of people you want working for you then good luck in the attempted growth of your company.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Shaw Academy (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Conducted a phone interview where I had to "sell" one of their courses. The next stage I was invited to their headquarters in Dublin for a face to face interview. When I arrived, I found around 10 other people there for a group interview. They had us discuss various courses they offered & doing puzzles / games & sat watching for approximately 2-3 hours. They then left the room to deliberate and only 4 of us were chosen to do a one-to-one interview.

    Shaw Academy Response

    28 Jun 2018

    Thanks for the review.

    And sorry that your experience were not great and also very long.

    The length is not indicative of how we managed our hiring process at the time, but we were having trouble with our recruitment agency partners responding to us. This isnt an excuse but perhaps an explanation.
    If you would like to contact us, I can discuss this further.

    Regarding your experience, I've personally overseen a revamp of our hiring process and we seek feedback directly from the candidates to make sure that their experience is nothing short of excellent.

    We always wants to improve in Shaw Academy, and we have made serious improvements in this area and many others since you would have interviewed.

    Thanks again and good luck with your career

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Shaw Academy (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Informal and laid back, office is nice. However because it was so informal I got the feeling there was no structure to it, they didn't really know what they were doing. Spent around 2 hours there (a lot of it waiting). I never even got a generic emailing telling me that I didn't get the job.
