    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Department for Work And Pensions (Basildon, East of England, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Five months from submitting the application to receiving feedback after the interview. On interview day, there was a great deal of additional form-filling with several candidates in the same small room and documents flying all over the place, including passports. Some of the forms contained duplicate questions. The woman 'supervising' the process appeared not to know about certain requirements surrounding vetting and pension, so she called a colleague and together they started to speculate in front of us (the candidates) as to what may be required. All in all the interview gave me the sense that demotivation, incompetence and confusion run high in this office.
