    Retail Support Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grangemouth, Scotland (UK)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Red Cross (Grangemouth, Scotland (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard within a week of the closing date that I had been invited for an interview.
    The interview consisted of an excel and word assessment followed by a competency based interview, before a panel of 2, with approximately 10 questions. The whole process took about an hour. I received an email 3 working days after the interview to say that I had been unsucessful and that if I wanted feedback then I should let them know. I emailed back to ask if feedback could be provided in writing or whether they only gave verbal feedback and despite chasing, I am still waiting on a response/acknowledgement over 2 weeks later which I find more disappointing than not getting the job.

    Interview Questions

    Event First Aid Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dundee, Scotland (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at British Red Cross (Dundee, Scotland (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied, received an invite to start, then after I had been working 6 months, I was "formally" interviewed by my line manager. Which she never seemed to understand either. Basically, I probably shouldn't have been working there. Especially for the part where I was working with vulnerable children for the biggest part of the job!
