    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at English Heritage (London, England (UK)) in September 2018.

    Interview

    Interviewed by 2 EH staff for a historic property steward role. OK interview, lack of focus on the history and contents of the building, which is surely why someone would want to work there. Seemed more interested in how I could raise revenue for the company. Sadly it was another tick box exercise in fulfilling the requirements on paper, rather then looking at the individual in front of them, and how their job experience was valid.
    Poor communication, I emailed after 5 days to see how it was progressing, only to have to wait another 5 days to hear back from the member of EH staff who interviewed me to learn I had been unsuccessful, no feedback was offered, so I enquired whether this was possible to help with application forms such as this. Eventually they got back to me with feedback, reason being that I hadn't been successful was due to my lack of 'till and tourism' experience, which is frankly insulting, when I have over 4 years experience in customer facing hospitality & significant cash handling. To conclude, the whole experience left a very bad impression of the company as a whole.
