    Senior Research Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Osterley
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Sky (Osterley) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I initially received a phone call from HR 2 months after submitting my CV for a research engineer role. She asked me if I was still interested and 2 weeks later I had done the phone interview. That went well - basically just a chat for 30 minutes about my work history.

    The next week I got a call asking me to come in for the 1:1 on site, and I was able to schedule an interview 9 days in advance. Two days before the interview, I was told it had to be rescheduled because the interviewer wanted an extra staff member to be present, but he was unavailable that day. Fine - we agree a new date. A few days later, I'm called again to reschedule. The other staff member is still unavailable. We agree another new date. This is now 3 weeks after the phone interview.

    When I finally go in, 'surprisingly' that other guy isn't present and someone else has been brought in for him. I only have 45 minutes because the interviewer was 15 minutes late. The interview itself seems to go perfectly well though, and I finish by asking if they had any concerns that I could expand upon. No problems. Seems like I have a thumbs up, but there would still be a third stage to attend at a later date.

    I never received a courtesy call from HR following the interview. Instead, 3 weeks after wondering what had happened, I receive a copy-and-paste rejection email from HR. There is no explanation or apology for the delay. No feedback either. This was definitely the rudest response that I've ever had post-interview from any company. The email indicates that I can reapply for other jobs through their website. No thanks Sky. You know what? I'd much rather spend my time posting this experience on Glassdoor instead.
