- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at University of Warwick (Coventry, England (UK)).
Application is submitted online or via email. All initial interactions are via a secretary. A panel interview follows. Can be anywhere from 2-6+ people, typically wardens with possibly the head of residential life or sub-wardens included. Multiple questions are asked. After the first application if unsuccessful, which is moderately common, a second application is often successful. Interview feedback is also given if unsuccessful. This process can take several months overall. A role-playing, hands-on assessment center may now be included in the interview process.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at University of Warwick (Coventry, England (UK)) in March 2010.
After applying online on unitemps I was invited to the unitemps office in University House (its now in the Student Union on campus. They basically brought me in to see if I had stupidly coloured hair or some piercings as they can't have waiters looking too outlandish for banquet dinners.
Luckily my hair and body piercings (i didnt have any) were acceptable and so i was told i had the job after about 5 minutes.
- do you have any piercings? Answer Question
