Interviews are standardized - interviewers ask interviewees the same pre-determined questions and write down their answers. Because they have to write down the answers, interviewers often inform interviewees before the start of the interviewee that they would be doing so and that just because they are looking at the notepad does not mean they are ignoring the interviewees.
- Some questions were situational i.e. how you would solve a particular problem while other questions were directed to knowledge about the mandate of the office. Answer Question

Informal a group is given a test to write. The test was not done on a computer and could easily have been shared outside of the room. In this day and age when you can test people on computers I do not understand why a copied sheet of paper is handed to you to fill in. Same with typing test a hard copy is given to type from. After going through the process they do not even get back to you with an answer. Nor can you ever know your passing or failing score. They are very unprofessional and there is too many loopholes for cheating. Such as a copy of the test can easily be given out. A standard test on the computer like the ones used by all recruiting agencies and other HR departments would have better scores and results. Very unprofessional.
