    Retail Support Officer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Grangemouth, Scotland

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at British Red Cross (Grangemouth, Scotland) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and heard within a week of the closing date that I had been invited for an interview.
    The interview consisted of an excel and word assessment followed by a competency based interview, before a panel of 2, with approximately 10 questions. The whole process took about an hour. I received an email 3 working days after the interview to say that I had been unsucessful and that if I wanted feedback then I should let them know. I emailed back to ask if feedback could be provided in writing or whether they only gave verbal feedback and despite chasing, I am still waiting on a response/acknowledgement over 2 weeks later which I find more disappointing than not getting the job.
