No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Royal Mail (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in January 2017.

Interview

1-1 interview, very relaxed vibe, got asked 6 questions based of past work experinces and a breif talk about what the job involves. It took about 45mins even though it was a 1hr slot. The man interviewing me was really nice and gave me lots of insight about the company how they work and what they would expect of you. It will be a 25hr 12month contract that they are looking to make permenant after the 12months are up.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Royal Mail (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    An online application, followed by an online assessment on mail sorting, verbal and numerical reasoning. If you passed that stage, you would be called in for a face-to-face interview with one of the managers where they asked a series of competency questions. If you passed that, you received an e-mail congratulating you followed by a phone-call to see what kind of contract you wanted to work on (or what was available at the time). The whole process took a long time, 9+ months.
