Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation.

Interview

2 interviews with different managers over a 3 week period.
Different Interviewers each time, the first interview was much more relaxed and chatty. The second interview was way more tough with many more questions.

There were way more questions than this but I couldn’t remember them all.

Dress smart casual e.g smart trousers with plain top or black dress with smart jacket.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation (Edinburgh, Scotland) in November 2016.

    Interview

    - Asked me for availability, what I liked about retail. That's about it.
    - They don't really ask anything, they seriously need volunteers so if you go in and ask for a job you'll get one. No need to prep with an interview process.
    - Unless it's a paid position, in which case I can't help ya

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at British Heart Foundation (Scarborough, England) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I applied for the job through the job centre and had an initial interview there. About a week later I had an interview with the store manager at the store. There was just a standard interview process whereby simple questions relating to the CV were asked. The whole interview lasted about ten minutes max. I was offered the job there and then on the day.
