    Learning & Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leicester, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at next (Leicester, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Email received from their internal recruiter - asking me to consider applying for a role. CV sent and I was then asked to attend an interview at their Head Office in Leicester. I was told it was to be informal chat through my CV, however, was grilled and made to feel that my experience and skill set were sub standard (interesting as they asked me to apply?) One of the men who interview me was rude and cutting and this has impacted on my view of this brand now. Shame really, but if they employ people like him - then it's not for me.
