    Communications Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied to this job in August. It's currently November and I have no idea if I got the job. My HR contact cancelled my first round interview two times. On two occasions, I was asked to give my availability for a particular week for a phone call or interview and after providing that info, I didn't receive a response until the week after. HR is terrible at getting back to you. They take MONTHS to complete one interview process. On my final round interview, one of my interviewers didn't show up. I was also at the office for my final round interview from 11:00 to 2:00 and was given no food for lunch. Finally, they sent a 'case project' to complete prior to my interview. They sent it on Friday at 6:05 PM and expected me to return it on the following Monday at 11:00 AM. There were many unprofessional moments in my experience with Dyson and WOULD NOT recommend even applying to a job here. I can't imagine what it's like to deal with these disjointed processes internally.

    Interview

    I applied the job on the Dyson website, and get the first round of interview with a few weeks. I was contacted by HR first and had a phone interview with the direct supervisor of the position. The interview lasted for half and hour and the conversation went well. The HR later had a follow-up with me about my availability and possible next steps. However, I was never contacted by the team for further information or received a decline letter.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dyson (Aurora, IL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Process started with a phone screen with HR rep, followed by 1:1 with HR leader, followed by 1:1 with Hiring Manager, culminating in two panel interviews sandwiched within 3 hours, after traveling to site. During this interview Dyson advised I was one of two finalists. Two weeks later, after inquiring, I was advised that "XXXX would like to express his appreciation, but we have decided to go with another candidate". No follow-up from decision makers, no response to detailed feedback request. If you are a serious leader, interested in a decisive organization, Dyson NA is probably not it. The few items I suggested as low-hanging fruit have still not been addressed.

    Applications Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    I applied for the job via LinkedIn, and a recruiter emailed me the next day to set up a phone screen. He sent me a calendar invite for a few days later. He never called. After waiting 15 minutes, I e-mailed him to verify he had the correct phone number, and asked if he needed to reschedule. It's been a week and no response so at this point, he probably just needed to reach a quota. I'm disappointed that such a large company could be this unprofessional, especially since this has been a trusted brand.

    Senior Manager, Financial Analysis Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dyson (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Good start to process, phone call with recruiter, phone screen with hiring director all went fast and process was smooth. Had in person interview that was unorganized, things like switching the people and times. Nobody seemed to know how long they were supposed to interview me or who was next. After it was over the HR point person said they’d get back to me in a week with some feedback. After two weeks I sent a feeler to which they responded the team had not had time to gather after all the candidates had been interviewed. I took that to mean I was not their person but decided to see if I could get them to tell me that so I emailed once a week for the next three weeks to see if I could get an answer and they would never say no. I never even got the automated you werent selected email.

    Phone interview with talent acquisition partner. She reached out to set up the phone call and called me. I could hear her taking notes during the call.

    Online Chat Supervisor Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dyson.

    Interview

    The interview process started great. There was a written assessment, a video interview, an interview with the hiring manager and an interview with HR. Along the way the recruiter was in constant contact and was always right on time with anything she said until the very end. My last interview was with the HR manager and I was told I would hear something the next week. I never heard anything. No call, no email and no response. Very unprofessional way to close out the process with someone who spent a month interviewing.
