Senior Clerical Assistant Interview

Senior Clerical Assistant
Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at University of Edinburgh in May 2009.

Interview Details – The period of time between application and interview was very short. The interview itself was in front of a 3 person panel with each having equal input. Questions were fairly straight forward and the interviewers were friendly. The majority of the questions related to my previous experienc e and required me to give past examples to highlight an abilityor abilities that would be required in my new role.

Interview Question – Give an example of a weakness you have   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation stage as such, the wage structure was clear before the interview. Due to no previous experience of the exact job role i was started at the lower end of the pay spectrum.
