    I have been working at NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Try not to get tied down too much with the politics and 'red-tape' and it is a very rewarding career. The health service is very persistent in wanting to develop my knowledge and skills into areas I have a personal interest in.

    Cons

    My department is very heavily micro-managed. There is no autonomy and this is very highly demotivating.

    Advice to Management

    Place some trust in your staff - you will see the benefits and may also receive ideas on how to improve your services.

    Senior Electronics Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Then out of no where, i got a letter by post to go for face to face panel interview at Glasgow. No interview travel expense paid. Aggressive style of interview. Not enough information about the job or work place. The things they do is to make prototype model of a medical device, (they do that through public money) and they sell the technology to commercial company, who then take over from there. They did not mention this anywhere in their website or in Job application, which i think is dishonest of them. The manager and the panel apart from one member was very keen to test memory rather than test of intelligence. The interview was mainly technical and very aggressive. It was typical like this, tell me what is the definition of this technology? what is the frequency? etc. Which shows the calibre of panel and how they intend to take somebody in their team. They look bored and lazy. I guessed that they might have decided on another candidate. I felt that it was a waste of time for both of us. They did not even tell me when they would let me know, and what would be the next stage of their process. They are not that keen and passionate unlike other employers in the market. I did not get to see what they are making and for example if it would be a interesting place for me to work. After 5 days i got a rejection letter by post and no feedback was given in the letter. Very Poor experience from NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde. They should have done a phone interview, rather than a direct panel interview, which is a waste of time. I would not advise anybody to waste their time.
