    Interview process

    After applying to the role of Property Manager at Foxtons, I recieved a response after three weeks inviting me to attend a video interview. I was tasked to read various questions and was given approximately one minute to respond and demonstrate my skills and personality for each question. You have the ability to re record each video responce if you do not feel you answered well enough, which was a good addition, as you may find yourself often running out of time trying to fit as much as possible into your responce. You can also see the questions before hand, which can allow you to practice your response before hand. However, I if you try to retake your video response a number of times the website may take you right to the beginning of the set up, which was quick annoying and made the process longer. All in all the questions were not difficult, although the time limit will force you to make your answers consice and to the point. Initially I believed the one way video interview would take me half an hour. In the end it took me an hour and a half, although this would vary for every individual, depending on preparation.

    Most difficult question

    The questions were not necessarily difficult, however I would advise writing down your answer and quickly revising it before hand, to ensure for a confident responce free from stuttering and pauses.

    Interview tips

    Practice responces before hand.
    Do not ramble on, answer each point as best as possible, you may find yourself often running out of time mid speech so it is important to focus on the key aspects about yourself that you want to relay back to the interviewers.

    As the interview was a one way video interview, I had not yet attended an assessment centre.

    Interview process

    A group of about 10 of us, were taken into a room where one of the employees showed us a presentation about the company. After that was done, we were left to network with other employees of the company as well as the other interviewees. Then individually, we were taken away to do a one-to-one interview. That was the end of the first stage.

    I got a call back the next day to say I had been selected for the second stage, which consisted meeting with the operations director/director of managed properties and another senior manager.

    Second interview was much less informal in comparison to the first stage. Typical interview questions and a lot on wanting to know more about my career aspirations and personal goals.

    Most difficult question

    What is your plan if you don't get the role?
    Explain a time you dealt with conflict well?

    Interview tips

    Research the company beforehand Be confident but humble
    Smile and be approachable
    Ask questions to show your interest in the company
    Be early, show your enthusiasm
    Dress smart
    Remember to listen carefully to what you're being asked
