I just had my telephone interview with Lloyds Banking Group for Wholesale banking & Market graduate program. The interview is very ‘different’ from the other interviews I had before. Not sure is that because of that guy is a new comer or it is lloyds telephone interview tradition, the guy asked me to speak very very very slow in order to type every words I said, and I tried to speak at my slowest speed and very clearly, he still sometimes can’t follow or misunderstood my points. I am a bit worried about that. He often stopped me speaking saying he got what he want and there is no time to continue. I have to repeat several times for each question, even each sentence for him. In the previous interviews, I can speak at the normal speed and the interviewer can still follow my points. So I am a bit concerned if that will affect the interview, I think he is just to keep record of my answers and forward it to others.
I am very keen to find out whether all the lloyds telephones are conducted by the same style or not. Anyway, it lasted 1 hour to complete, which I think it could be finished within 30 minutes in the normal circumstances.
Does anyone have similar experience with Lloyds? please share here.
