    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Essex (Colchester, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Tour, followed by an inbox analysis test, followed by a panel interview of three people.

    The panel interview was welcoming and friendly. However, the analysis test talked about specifics of the University IT system, which would be unfamiliar to anyone externally, without a brief introduction to the system.

    Therefore the interview was very bias towards student / graduates who have already been operating the IT services in that environment.

    Interview Questions

    • All interview questions focused around customer service. Around 15 questions in total.   Answer Question
