    Administrative Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leicester, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Leicester (Leicester, England (UK)) in May 2015.


    The interview was conducted via Skype as I was not in a near distance. There was a panel of three persons and all were very welcoming and polite. The weird thing is that they contacted my referees before the interview -what a strange practice... Anyway, It was unfortunate that the sound was not particularly clear but at the end I was informed that their decision was ultimately down to who had the most relevant experience for the post, and their preferred candidate had more experience in the field, etc.
