Interview Feedback

 
#1 Interview Feedback

Hi,

I'd like to know why the Big4 companies who supposedly strive to succeed by providing effective feedback to their employees fail to provide feedback to candidates who fail their interviews (prior to assessment centre stage).

A candidate takes tremendous amount of time to apply to the roles but once he is rejected he's considered like a piece of trash.

I was asked to check the competency page on the website to see where I could have got wrong, but I think this is useless. I believe it is difficult to identify your failures this way.

I would appreciate the views of recruiters on this.

Thanks

Why is easily answered:

1) There is nothing in it for them. They no longer need to maintain a relationship with you so can treat any way they want.

2) There is an unnecessary risk in giving feedback. Someone might accidentally suggest a reason that can be challenged under discrimination legislation. Why take the risk.

Frustrating for candidates but looking for a job is a challenge in lots of ways and this is surely not the biggest irritation.

JJ's exactly right. you do of course have a legal right to see anything they have written about you, but such requests are typically only made where there is a whiff of discrimination and do tend to trigger a deal of post facto sanitisation...
