    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NHS (DuBois, PA (US)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked me 9-10 fairly standard interview questions, and then the interview was over. The whole process was less than an hour; and he was very nice. He told me he was impressed with my interview, however, I have experience in this field. And they would call me when they had a client that matched the hours I desired.

    Research Assistant Practitioner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunderland, North East England, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at NHS (Sunderland, North East England, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    I arrived early, the person before me didn’t show up so I went in during their slot. There was three making up the panel, less questions than I expected, but none of them where the top 10 NHS questions, or even top 10 regular questions, so the questions they asked I wasn’t totally prepared for. One interviewer seemed very nice, polite and interested in me, the other two seemed slightly disinterested.

    Got a phone call at 4pm the same day to say I had been unsuccessful, and that they thought the interview went very well but the candidate chosen had more NHS experience, but nothing was mentioned about research experience.
    This leads me to believe, like many others have mentioned, that it was an internal candidate that was promised the role and they advertised externally for legalities.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS (Cardiff, Wales) in January 2020.

    Interview

    30 minute interview with 2 NHS staff members. They didn't seem happy or friendly. The interview room was like a sauna and no windows were open. Thankfully the interview on lasted 30 mins or I would have passed out. The usual questions, why did I apply for this role? What's your best accomplishment? Give an example where you had to handle a difficult situation and how did you deal with it?

    Didn't get the interview. Got the feeling that they already had someone in mind before any interviews took place.
