    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an invitation for an online test a couple of days later, the topics given were much more difficult than the job requirements, but I still made it passed and received an on-site interview invitation. The on-site experience was not so good. I just found the people I met were not passionate about their work at all. I could felt the interviewers were quite fake when giving their answers. I didn't think they were willing to work at cancer research.
