    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reading, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cats Protection (Reading, England) in August 2015.

    Interview

    met the management team on site for an overview and formal interview using set, provided questions. Description of the role and operation followed, as well as what happens next.

    For my questions, I asked why this vacancy had arisen and what timescale they were hoping to work to, we also discussed charity fundraising and profile raising events in the local area - and specific examples were talked through, which was really interesting to then be able to find out how organised they were and what areas they were already involved in.
    Because set questions were used I felt that all the candidates would have had an equal opportunity during the interview, and so it gave us a chance to each show what preparation had been done (lots in my case - looking at their websites, reading articles, checking up press cuttings and releases, upcoming events, facebook and twitter etc) and visiting satellite locations.
    I was invited to interview over the phone, and then offered the job over the phone, so cant comment on any formal communication as I havent received any so far!
