    I applied in-person. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at De Montfort University (Leicester, England) in October 2019.

    Straight forward, invited by email and attended in person following being successful at the shortlisting stage. Relaxed and friendly interview, I was informed I would be told of the outcome within a week, had to chase for around 3 weeks before receiving a generic email that I was unsuccessful. Asked for feedback, after a few weeks had one missed call and a voicemail stating they would try to ring me again the following week which never happened.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at De Montfort University (Leicester, England).

    Interview

    Interview lasted approx. 40 mins. A panel of four people asked questions regarding ,my motivation for applying and previous roles/experience and some scenario questions e.g. what would you do if X happened?' It was friendly though very professional in tone. It is quite a standardised process, so they must ask predefined questions and each person on the panel is assigned a set of questions to assess different areas of the job.

    A Readership Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at De Montfort University (Leicester, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Extremely long process 7 months in total from applying to now and still have not heard back after interview in January 2018- absolute joke and very unprofessional! Was looking forward to this interview but what a mistake. Disorganised and no introduction. Made me and another candidate wait for ages in reception for interview and presentation. Gang grilled me on a presentation asking questions that weren't linked to the content of the presentation. Interrupting the presentation and disrupting behaviours by academic staff. Three months after interview, I tried three times in Feb, March and April to ask for feedback from the HOD and still have no idea of whether I failed the interview and the reasons for having not received an offer. I will not bother here again.
