    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at English Heritage (Newport, South East England, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Two tests. One was a prioritisation of tasks and the other was to do a response letter to a customer complaint. Followed by interview with two managers. Both people were clearly tired of interviewing by the time they saw me. I got no feedback on the tasks that I carried out. Their interviewing technique was very inflexible. There was no opportunity to showcase my ability to to do the job. I had a portfolio which they declined to look at. Every question was about dealing with stress. This would have been a relatively stress free post and so I feel that the questions posed were a little inappropriate. The role involved was clearly customer service based. This is an area in which I am fully competent but they did not allow for any diversification from the questions that they had on a sheet of paper. I feel that the two people doing the interviews were not experienced in getting the best out of their interviewees.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty much every single question was 'how would you cope in this stressful situation?' 'Give me an example of when you encountered this kind of scenario'. Very rigid process, no interest in personal skills or personality.   Answer Question
