    International Marketing Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at King's College London (London, England) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I was emailed that I have an interview two weeks prior to the date. I had to prepare a 10 minute presentation on a one year marketing strategy to attract American students. This took a lot of preparation and time. On the day of the interview, I came in, greeted the panel and gave the presentation immediately. After that, I was interviewed for about 10-15 minutes and then asked some of my own questions. The interview was a bit quick and as just the panel firing typical questions such as 'what do you think will be the biggest challenge' or 'how would you organise your time'. I then left and was told that I didn't get the job a week later. I asked for feedback twice to two different panel members and received no reply. It was only after I emailed HR that they forced a panel member to send me email feedback. This pissed me off as I have never been to a professional job interview that is reluctant to give feedback. Apart from that it was good but I shouldn't have to pester them and beg for feedback, it should be offered from the beginning.

    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.
