    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mencap (London, England (UK)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Took almost 4 months, bad thing is that you get paid only at the end of the next month. So you have to work 2 months before you get the money.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mencap (London, England (UK)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The online application (cv and cover letter) fairly standard. There was meant to be a task given to me to prepare, but no one told me about it and when I showed up on the day of the panel interview, they were surprised no one had mentioned anything. The panel interview was a mix of staff and ex-service users.
