    Interview

    One interview and there were two people interviewing - not very friendly. They had a number of questions they wanted to ask but didn’t really flow and they didn’t make an effort to try and make me feel relaxed

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WaterAid (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Very professional, smooth process and extremely personable. You get a good feel for the company upfront and their core values.

    Although I was not offered a job, they took time to give me constructive feedback and ensured that any
    questions I had were addressed in an honest and open way. This really goes to show that they care for the people they interact with and if you’ve taken the time for an interview, they will take the time to help you in any way they can, even if it isn’t a job.

    it's basically training on day one and after the training, you will be asked to get at least 1 sign up for the day. they will be training you for a week or two and if you're not good you'll probably not get the job.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WaterAid (London, England (UK)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Very enjoyable relaxed interview. Started with a prioritisation task. The feedback I got was that I focused too much on my own achievements and not enough on what I achieved as part of a team.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at WaterAid (Bhopal (India)).

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two people - but primarily one- a senior officer. This was at Wateraid India's office in Bhopal. After the interview, there was a test, a very lengthy test that involved writing and editing case studies. We had not been informed about the test, and the org did not care that we had trains to catch. They probably used the case studies we edited for the, and it was a way of getting free work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WaterAid (London, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Started with 3 tasks to be completed in 30 minutes (prioritising 12 tasks and justifying your priorities later in the interview, brainstorming an event idea and drafting an email), followed by a one hour interview with two people. Mostly standard questions you'd expect (why WaterAid, why this role, strengths and weaknesses, giving examples of tasks as per the job description). Also needed to tell them why your prioritised as you did in the first task, as well as talk them through your event idea. Then gave you lots of space to ask questions and answered openly. The three tasks stressful because of the time constraint, but not too hard. The interview atmosphere was friendly and I would almost say I enjoyed it. I was invited to a further interview but was not ultimately offered the job.
