    Service Delivery Manager Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Two face-face interviews The fist went well very positive female manager and I felt very good about the organisation. A second interview was arranged and cancelled on my journey into London due to 'problem at home' with the interviewing manager. No apology or follow up interview was forthcoming the first interviewing manager resigned the day after the aborted interview. I applied for this role which was offering a salary will below my usual expectations because I thought it would be a great organisation to work for for cause i totally agree with. I was then informed that the role had been filled internally! Thanks for wasting time and money What a shame that this organisation appears to have rude, unprofessional incompetent senior management team. My advice is to unfortunately is to give this a organisation berth and save yourself both time and money.
