    I have been working at National Autistic Society part-time

    Pros

    The children you work with are great! The teenagers can sometimes just be happy having a chat and slowly working through the activities, whereas the youth tend to have more energy and so love any activities that involve moving around. Working with a range of kids and doing day outings outside of club sessions helps to improve your understanding of autism and definitely increases your confidence working with children on the spectrum.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of this job some club sessions can be challenging, for example, if a child has had a bad week at school they may be more irritable than usual. However, getting to the route of their change in behaviour and making them smile again is very rewarding! The only problem is the company can be a bit disorganized, which has resulted in some club sessions being cancelled at the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    More organisation is needed in this company. Management need to improve on their planning skills including head office. For example, as soon as you are given a letter of resignation there needs to be an active hunt to recruit more employees rather than just relying on current workers to pickup extra shifts.

    Performance Data Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at National Autistic Society (Islington, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed for Performance Data Analyst at the National Autistic Society. I was interviewed by 3 people and I found them very friendly and diligent.
    I was asked to do a presentation for 10-mins and the interview and questions followed after.
    Although the interview went according to plan, I felt the room was not suitable for doing a presentation and it was hard to use the chart-board to write words as there was very little space.
    Also, the feedback process after the interview was slow. I received an email that I did not get the offer, however I was told to email back for further feedback.
    I tried a number of times to phone the hiring manager and email, but did not receive a reply for a while - this was frustrating at first, however after composing a long email, I finally got some feedback, which was good.
    The feedback - I agreed in parts and disagreed with other parts. I prepared a lot for the presentation, but the feedback didn't reflect this fully.
    Nevertheless, it was quite a long haul and was disappointed I didn't get the offer.
