I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Home Office in Aug 2021

Interview

Online interview over Launch Pad. The first question is an ice-breaker and they gave me 15 seconds to prepare and 60 seconds to answer. 7 questions followed, most of which were 45 seconds preparation time and 4 minutes to answer. Some others 30 seconds prep and 3 minutes to answer. I suggest blurring your camera so that you don't get distracted.

Interview

Online video interview where you record your answers. 3 questions based on the behaviors they asked for and 3/4 strength based questions. Some 'questions' are just showing proof of ID and other formalities. Some questions will have sub-questions to help you along if you are stuck but don't let it distract you from your usual STAR presentation you have practiced, only look at them after you have said your main piece then use them to add-on anything you have missed.

Interview

Submit behaviours using STAR method. Received score for them and was invited for interview. 3 people on the panel. Main recruiter was the only one who asked loads of questions which used up the full hour and the other two who work in the team just asked the behaviours and didn't ask any follow up. Found the recruiter who deals with applicants rude and seemed to have already made up her mind to not offer me the role.

Interview

Awful interview. Quite possibly the worst interview I've ever had the displeasure of doing. Panel of 3 people. Main interviewer was extremely rude and patronising, and he made sarcastic comments throughout the interview. Asked me what my main skills were and when I responded, he said things like "Well let's see if you show that in the interview then". I was interrupted at least twice because I "hadn't understood the question" even though I was just starting to answer it. Main interviewer interrupted me and told me what I was trying to say and at one point blurted he'd "heard enough". The main interviewer also spoke over the other interviewer a few times. Visibly yawned during some answers. At the end when I asked one question he said "is that it? You don't have any more questions?". Feedback was somewhat OK, some valid points, but coincidentally marked me the lowest in the skill I said I had the most strength on. Overall, it felt like the interviewer didn't like me from the start, had no interest in what I had to say.

I applied online. The process took 6 months. I interviewed at Home Office

Interview

Online application form. Online tests, verbal and situational judgement tests. The problem with these tests are, that they can stop you getting any further as you can't submit your application unless you get a high enough score. Took a month to hear back that I got an interview. Interview was around 45 minutes to an hour.

Interview Questions
  • Q: Describe a time you had to work under pressure to achieve a goal?
