Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Mencap (London, England, England) in Nov 2018

Interview

First interview was conducted via phone with HR. Second interview was a face to face one, with two panels - one panel was formed of people with learning disabilities, and the other was of the hiring manager and other staff. I find the panels very well prepared and asked me appropriate questions. The entire process was pleasant. However, there was no further contact after the second interview, which was off-putting. At least have the professional courtesy to say thanks but no thanks!

Interview Questions
  • How would you go about designing the survey? What could be the challenges of this research project? Tell me about a time when you are trusted and relied on by your colleagues.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mencap (London, England, England) in Jun 2018

Interview

The online application (cv and cover letter) fairly standard. There was meant to be a task given to me to prepare, but no one told me about it and when I showed up on the day of the panel interview, they were surprised no one had mentioned anything. The panel interview was a mix of staff and ex-service users. When I wasn´t offered the job, I was provided with zero feedback after having asked several times
