    Interview Questions

    • So long ago I can't remember the specifics. What I do remember is realising retrospectively that I had been hired on a fraction of what other people had. There was no equality in wage levels and some folk took them to tribunals over this.   1 Answer

    Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in City of London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Crown Prosecution Service (City of London, England (UK)) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The application form was quite strange, it was just personal details and then four questions to answer. They did not ask for any employment or education history. They also only contacted you through email, so when I first saw the email in my inbox I thought I had been unsuccessful but it was actually an invitation to interview.

    The interview was in the centre of London and they were very accommodating as I was travelling from the North of England. The interview was with 2 people, one from HR and one from the office. The interview mainly consisted of competency based questions that were similar or related to the four questions in the application form. The interviewers were very nice and welcoming and were very good at putting you at ease. Dare I say they almost made it enjoyable?

    I then received another email a week later saying I had been successful subject to references and security checks. I then received a form offer of employment.
