Lengthily and unclear. The online application advertised was very appealing stating full time hours and great training however upon the actual interview the post was for 7 hours only and not guranteed more

Very efficient and well managed. Heard frequent updates about my application. I didn’t get the role but overall a positive experience and everyone was very friendly. I would apply for another role with British Red Cross.

Interview

It was to some extent a relaxing interview that lasted for 10 minutes. The manager was very nice and asked me some basic questions such as when I was available. She recognised my personality.

I interviewed at British Red Cross

Interview

There was an online application form and I was then invited for an interview with two interviewers. When rejected, I was offered feedback. I felt some of the feedback was unfair as they complained I did not speak enough about my career ambitions, despite this not being mentioned in any of the interview questions.

Completed online application describing why I want to work at the Red Cross. Had an in-person interview with 2 members from HR, asked me typical interview questions. Was quite relaxed, not too daunting.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Red Cross (London, England) in May 2021

Interview

This was a two stage interview for a new 12 month FTC role. Prior to both interviews they sent the questions over, both interviews came with a task. The first round was set for 1.5h (but took more than 2h) which included a 30min excel/sql test. There were 3 interviewers (hiring manager and two stakeholders). The next day I received an email from one of the interviewers saying they’d like to invite me to the next and last round - again a 1.5h interview with 3 interviewers (hiring manager and one stakeholder from the first round, joined by another stakeholder). In preparation they asked me to put together a presentation about a project that I was proud of/that had a lot of impact. About a week after that final interview I got an automated email telling me I was unsuccessful but with no further feedback. So after almost 4h of interviewing and several hours preparation they couldn’t even drop me a personalised note. I emailed the interviewers about this but so far nothing. Not impressed with that at all.

Interview

2 on 1 interview, they asked a series of competency based questions. They were friendly but based on their behaviour it seemed like they had already identified another candidate for the role and were simply going through the motions. Interview questions were mostly competency based, some tested the applicants knowledge of the British Red Cross activities, values etc. Anyone without prior volunteer experience would be at a distinct disadvantage
