Administrator Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Swansea, Wales
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Barnardo's (Swansea, Wales).

Interview

I met at the service with the Manager and another member of staff. We began the interview then they realised I was not the applicant they thought so had to go outside and return when the other applicant had finished.

The interview was okay, the panel were quite abrupt and one of them rolled her eyes when I spoke about the work I had done with vulnerable people, which was very unprofessional. I knew by the atmosphere and their responses that I hadn't got the job. The job description stated administration experience wasn't essential but it was clear they were looking for someone who was experienced.

I applied online and heard back from the company around a week after the closing date. I was given 10 days to prepare for the interview.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Barnardo's (Crystal Palace, England) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview took 30 mins and it was like you speak to a friend, which was very nice. I did not feel like I'm having interview, but more like I meet friends.
