    No Offer
    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.

    Information Officer - Band IV Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at NHS.

    Interview

    Applied a few weeks ago, got the interview date 2 weeks in advance. Waited 5 minutes when I got there before the interview. Interview took less than an hour. Was interviewed by two employees who were incredibly friendly, one with questions from the supporting statement I had given, the other with more structured questions. They said they would let me know by tomorrow if I had the job or not.
     One of the interviewers called me at 1pm the next day to tell me I didn't have the job but suggested other areas within the organisation I should look into from the areas of interest I mentioned in the interview.

    All in all, I am very impressed by how friendly and smooth the process was.

    It was an easy and pleasant interview with three members from Communications. No Hr specialist joined.
