    Three person panel interview. It was a fairly straight forward interview. They asked behavioral style questions which I responded using the STAR technique.

    Library Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at King's College London (London, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I interviewed with a panel of three managers from across the library network. There was a test which involved observing the library query desk. The first three questions were based on this experience, including which queries you witnessed and how you felt about the space. A few variables there.

    Questions were not what I anticipated, a few curveballs for such a basic role. One question covered several criteria that it was difficult to give one scenario for.

    After the interview no one got back to me within the timeframe outlined. I tried to get in touch with HR but this was impossible. No reply to emails sent directly to HR officer who sent me the interview invitation and no answer/full voicemail inbox. You will not find a generic number for HR on their website or the Institution's recorded switchboard menu.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you have responded to diverse queries in a diverse environment.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Interview panel.What a shambles. It was a tick box exercise. When I looked up on LinkedIn the experience of the Director and head of department, they had much less experience than me. this showed in their interview questions and knowledge. The panel was rude, didn't even get up and offer shake my hand as I was leaving. I would not recommend working for them at ALL.

    • I asked them what the greatest achievements they have made in Diversity and Inclusion issues within the the University. What a load of hot air I got in response. They failed to answer the question properly   1 Answer
