    11. Sept. 2018 – Recruitment Manager

    Thank you for your review on the interview process. Though we are looking for candidates that align with our culture and having a good sense of humor is always nice, it's not the only thing we look out for in the assessment and interview process. We do look for candidates to align with our core values of being Fun, Passionate, Responsible and Intelligent, and will be assessing candidates against these, alongside how they demonstrate the right behaviours and competencies to be successful in the role. The Sales position doesn't necessarily require previous experience, so ensuring you can showcase how you'd approach the role and have the right attitude is key!

    Thanks

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über eine Vermittlungsagentur beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Januar 2020 bei Softcat (Bristol, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Was approached on LinkedIn. Complete some simple/easy personality tests online then invited to an AC. AC consisted of a quiz on top-level company information, a features/benefits task, a gatekeeper task, a presentation and an elevator pitch. Was not offered role due to insufficient questions asked in the gatekeeping task and the assessor didn't understand my sales motivation. You only have 2 minutes to pitch to them at the end which is not a long time (though I could have used it better), and my particular assessor was more interested in what was going on through the glass door behind me than what I was saying. Not something I would have applied for off my own back so its for the best I wasn't successful.

    The assessment day requires you to remember facts about softcat, group activities and an interview. Try and learn lots of facts for a small test they have and show that you understand the role they are being for. Just be calm and clear.

    I recently applied for AWS Technical Consultant role which was available at Softcat. I was contacted by a recruiter from Softcat , the recruiter was planning me in for a Telephone Interview however she did not respond back to any of my emails for an interview slot. I then contacted the HR department and no one has come back to me regarding my application. Very unprofessional.

    We thank you for your review, but we're really disappointed to hear the above. It's very very unlike our team to respond in an efficient manner and therefore I would like to understand more if you'd be open to discussing the feedback directly. I just want to ensure our processes are effective and that our candidates are getting the best experience possible when applying to us. My email address is rachelco@softcat.com if you'd like to get in touch and we can discuss the details.

    The most professional interview process I have been through, very thorough but also balanced and fair. Also the HR team were very responsive, quick to feedback and all documentation was done electronically which made things super fast and easy. Very friendly and easy to deal with, happy to answer questions and were very keen to understand if I felt it was the right fit for me. Couldn't rate them high enough.

    Starts with an online video interview, if successful then an assessment centre, by the afternoon they narrow down to a few successful candidates who come back for a 1 on1 interview. Informal, friendly and relatively enjoyable.

    Sales Executive-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Kein Angebot
    Negative Erfahrung
    Schweres Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im September 2019 bei Softcat (Glasgow, Schottland (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online and got an email the next day inviting me to do a video interview. In this interview you had a chance to practice and then got a few questions you had to answer on video then 3 written responses to questions that appeared on screen. The following day I received a phone call inviting
     me to next stage which was assessment day in Glasgow office. Here you met with recruiter who was very lovely and welcoming and got to learn about day to day role, what they do, what they’re looking for. After you had this tour and talk you had to do group exercise with other interviewee’s and prepare for cold call. Once that task was completed we did speed interviewing with 3 team leaders which I thought was a fun exercise, and finally do a presentation in front of 3 team leaders and recruiter about why you for the role. I received a call that day telling me they would like to invite me back in myself this time to do interview. I travelled back into Glasgow and did an interview with 3 different team leaders and thought it went well (also gave feedback that confirmed this). I got a phone call later on in day from same recruiter advising I was successful and had to do another interview by telephone with a team leader. I was due the telephone interview on Friday afternoon and prepared. I waited an hour and had to phone call or email to advise me what was happening. I then emailed to ask if it was going to be rescheduled a few hours after and was given a new day for Tuesday the following week. I was happy with this as had already put a lot of time in for interview and preparation by the time Tuesday came I got my phone call with a team leader. I had prepared my questions based on the 3 interviews I had did previous, glass door reviews and looking at soft cars person specification. The team leader advised me it will be casual conversation which was fine I had friendly casual chat , was asked my favourite restaurant and also if I go out drinking/clubbing and if so where I go to. I thought call went okay not my usual interview but didn’t think much as already had 3 great interviews and was asked when I could start on call with recruiter few days before telephone interview. After interview I never had phone call all day which I thought was inconsistent as for past interviews in process I had quick feedback and response. I decided to call up recruiter to ask for feedback and was to be told I was unsuccessful and that the team leader thought I wasn’t the sales driven. In that respect if I had been asked more about sales, examples of hitting targets & KPIs, why sales, what motivates me to sell etc I’m sure he definitely would of thought different but when I’m too busy answering casual questions about restaurants or nightclubs. I get building rapport is part of role and something I really find engaging in a role but felt a bit deflated after hearing I wasn’t successful due to one persons feedback that reflected the questions and conversation he chose. So that was my complete interview process.

    They make you do a video interview which is very impersonal in my opinion. They claim to be a company that encourages socialising, but a video interview is the complete opposite of that; very impersonal and makes you feel robotic. Apparently they'll put you through a video interview, an assessment centre, a phone interview and a panel interview. If I wanted to be made to jump through hoops like a monkey I would have joined a circus.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. We're disappointed that you didn't go away feeling positive about the time you spent in our recruitment process, we do pride ourselves on making the experience as enjoyable as it can be! We do have the facility to do an interview via video as it gives the candidates and recruitment team more flexibility around when the interview is undertaken and reviewed. We do say on the invite that if you're uncomfortable or unable to do the video interview, we're happy to do a telephone interview instead.

    We are always open to improving our processes where we can, so do feel free to share any additional thoughts and suggestions to me personally and I would be happy to look at them, my email is rachelco@softcat.com.

    We wish you all the best in your job search and thanks for applying to Softcat

    The interview began with meeting a member of HR to give an overview of the role and talk through my qualifications and work experiences. After this, a casual conversation with the team I’d be working with on the role itself, including some questions to demonstrate how I would react in certain situations.

We feel it's really important to ensure you are comfortable and get exposure to our culture, so getting the chance to meet with the team and see how we work in a more natural environment hopefully gave you a good sense of who we are too.

    We wish you all the best for the future!
