French energy giant EDF, advisory firm BDO and retailer Primark have been named among the best companies at which to interview in the UK, according to a new research.

Glassdoor, a jobs website, looked at data submitted by more than 8000 UK candidates, who interviewed at 123 companies with at least 1000 employees.

EDF was found to be the best company to interview at with a 100 per cent satisfaction rating. This includes candidates who did not get the position following the interview.

Accountancy firms BDO and Mott McDonald ranked second and third respectively with a 96 per cent positive feedback

Primark scored the highest among retailers with a 96 per cent satisfaction rating, while Topshop ranked 9 with 93 per cent.

Candidates rated their overall interview experience and its difficulty, the questions asked and described the process.

Carmel Galvin, Glassdoor CHRO, said the candidate experience is a crucial part of the employment process.

“If employers succeed at this stage, they start off on the right foot with employees throughout their journey with the organisation." 

"By honouring companies that excel at the interview process, we aim to help people find jobs and companies they love and in turn help employers hire top talent,” he said.
