    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City Year UK.

    Interview

    It was 8 of us at the assesment day. We first played two games, one we had to cross the room using sheets of paper and the other was to build a tower out of paper cups, straws and plates. I guess they wanted to see how we worked as a team and what are character/ attitudes were like. We then did a test to check our ability in English grammar. After that it was the 1:1 interview. Questions I got asked were:
    - Why do you want to work for City Year?
    - What do you want to do in the future?
    - What do you think you can give to City Year?
    - How would you deal with conflict between your co-workers? How would you deal with conflict between the children?
    - What do you think you will find the hardest at City Year?
    - What is the biggest challenge you hve faced?

    Volunteer Mentor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at City Year UK (Manchester City Centre, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was a very enjoyable day; group task, situational judgement test (based on a video) then interview. Very friendly and relaxed, they began with a game for us to introduce ourselves, seemed quite formal at the time and like they're looking for a lot (they write a lot of notes) but I asked for my interview feedback a few months into the programme and it was all very positive; they're not looking for much, you just need to make sure you don't give them a reason not to take you on.
