    Former Employee - Business Development Associate in Houston, TX

    I worked at UK Trade and Investment full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It is a government job, so the benefits are quality. An international working environment. Stability.

    Cons

    Pay does not incentivize people to stay, but that's gov't for you. Overwhelming bureaucracy at times. Very little upward mobility.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at UK Trade and Investment.

    Interview Details

    Applied via UK Embassy website, which was fairly straightforward. Required cover letter, resume, etc. I received a phone screen from their HR department, asking about my general interest and qualifications. That person set up a final interview with a panel for a week later via Skype.

    The panel interview was easy content-wise, but they were very late to start and had technical problems throughout. I got the impression that they were rushing and didn't have much to share about the position. I wasn't too affected by it, but I didn't feel I had much of a chance given the circumstances. In retrospect, I would've preferred a re-schedule.

    Questions were all as expected. They were mostly about my resume, how I would react to difficult coworkers and the such.
