    Senior Management Head Office Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Merlin Entertainments (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Very odd and confusing. Had 2 successful interviews, was made an offer and was awaiting contract. Was invited in to meet someone very senior ahead of me starting as they would be out of the country when I was due to begin. It actually wasn’t a meet and greet, it was another interview as far as this guy was concerned and he had no idea that I already had an offer and was grilled. Despite a member of HR being in the room, I was told that I look far too young to have this level of experience and must be lying, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t take the role in the end, too much agism and assumption, along with their inability to communicate with one another...plus shameful HR behaviour.
