    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at University of Nottingham.

    Interview Details

    Interview focussed on desirable qualities not essential, not given chance to talk about my skills etc, felt that were not interested in me from the outset, in fact one of the panel was snappy and a little aggressive towards me, left the interview knowing that I would not get an offer as I feel that already had a candidate in mind (probably and internal) But have to say if that is how your line manager behaves at an interview I would not want to work for them.
    In comparison if you want to work at a UNI, Nottingham Trent pays about 4K better for same admin roles.
