    Administrative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Watford, East of England, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NHS Professionals (Watford, East of England, England) in November 2018.

    Interview

    The job spec was changed between application and notification of interview.

    This may have been to aid an internal or "known" candidate - one of the questions involved their "corporate image", which as an outsider I'm less likely to know.

    Two other questions related strongly to the revised job specification and had no relevance to the specification I applied for.

    One of the interviewers gave me the impression I was just there to make up the numbers.

    No rejection email after the interview, just silence.

    They're not the NHS, and as for "Professionals", read the reviews here and decide for yourself!

    Nursery Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Stockton-on-Tees, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at NHS Professionals (Stockton-on-Tees, England) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online and didn't hear anything for around 3 months. I was invited to an interview via email, and whilst at the interview was offered the job. I was asked questions around the Early Years Foundation Stage and how to put this into place, they also asked me about things which didn't relate remotely to my job role, such as working with patients etc. as they just had a generic interview rather than one for a nursery assistant. They booked me onto a two day induction course which was two months later. When I attended this course, it didn't relate to working with children, only patients, I was taught how to lift patients etc. and did a first aid course (without pediatrics) After that, I was waiting for my uniform and ID to arrive so that I could start and out of the blue got an email telling me that I was no longer needed.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NHS Professionals (Plymouth, England) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick and simple, I found out on the same day that I was successful for the role. I arrived and was asked to submit the documents that they required (Passport, bank statement, utility bill etc). Then asked a few questions which were pretty straightforward. I filled out some paperwork (Health questionnaire, HMRC). Lastly, they took my photograph Foy ID card after telling me I had been successful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NHS Professionals in December 2014.

    Interview

    I had to go somewhere outside London. The interview was short and the questions were quite basic. After the interview I had to do a 6 hours online training and one day at a London University, all of it unpaid! The process to register was very long and they were very inefficient. After over a month I found out that working isn't that easy unless you worked for the NSH before. It was a nightmare and they require far too much for a temp job. So far between training, documents and calls I have spent over £100 and I have not worked yet!
