    Data Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    I had the misfortune of applying for this role with an agency. I attended the interview location and was shocked to wait 30 MINUTES in reception before being interviewed. A non-panel member who knew this didn't tell me why I was being delayed. This had a negative impact during the interview. The panel simply laughed this off, but I didn't at all appreciate the fact they wasted my time. Demonstrates how unprofessional and poor they are at managing time. I wouldn't waste time with them again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    They sent me an email for an appointment in the UCL, I should be there in two weeks and show them a summary of my research data. I arrived 15 min before but I should wait for 25 minutes in the secretary room. The interview were in the meeting room, three collaborators of the proyect asked me questions about my experience and background, the computer wasn't working. Then I showed my research data in a ppt. It was not difficult at all, but I saw the previous candidate giving them certificatess and documentation. They only asked me for my passport, so I am sure I am not in. I am wainting for feedback.

    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The shortlisting process was incredibly slow and I did not hear back for over a month. I was informed that I had been shortlisted for the post and asked to prepare a presentation. I arranged time off work, cover for events that I had planned both professionally and personally and spent time preparing for the presentation. A couple of weeks later I received a further email informing me that there had been an error at shortlisting and I had been invited to interview by mistake! What kind of organisation takes weeks to shortlist and then invites the wrong candidate? Particularly in HR, the function that should be promoting best practice. I'm grateful that I was 'uninvited' to interview and did not waste more time with such a shambolic organisation.
