    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at University of Warwick (Warwick, West Midlands, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Felt welcomed and they did their best to help me relax.Panel interview,took turn in asking questions which were with a mixture of competency and standard. Was told at the end of the interview I would be informed of the outcome they next day. Over a week later-nothing !The candidate page was not updated either to show the interview let alone anything else,For an organisation with a dedicated HR department there is really no excuse to provide something even if it is a standard rejection email after an interview.Unfortunately this seems to be endemic in most HR departments in most organisations. Not impressed.

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Warwick in October 2013.

    Interview

    I received an invitation to the interview in 1.5-2 months after app deadline. It was a phone interview. The panel included 3 persons (Prof, HR, researcher)

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were about my experience with programming of MCU/FPGA, designing of gas detection systems, but not detailed ones. There was a question on my style of presenting slides to the audience.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    This was the position for 1.5 years. When I was accepted, it turned out that the position is just for 9 months. The salary offered started from the lowest threshold even though I had an excellent matching and already had 4 years of experience in the same position. Persons I was in contact after the inerview promised great future, but did not provide direct answers to my questions and tried to avoid them - only generic answers.
