    Interview

    Called within 5 minutes of submitting the application. Sent email confirming the appt with interviewers names missing. Asked to provide relevant documents and fill in extra information. Interview email stated to leave at least 3 hrs for interview. Attended interview, 2 interviewers. Asked standard competency based questions. Interview lasted 30 minutes. Told they were still interviewing and that I would hear from them by early next week and that feedback would be given which I requested. Emailed within 3 hrs of the interview to say i had been unsuccessful and that NAME??? would be happy to provide feedback should i want it. Very personal! Looks like administration is not their strongest point.

    Interview

    Interview went fine. Offered job same day. Put notice in for my other job and spent £500 on childcare fees for the next month as thought it should be completed by then. Sent everything for DBS promptly as required. Weeks went by with little communucation but enough to keep me holding on. Rang head office 7 weeks later to find they had not sent my documents for DBS. Rang up several times. Excuses made and they would ring me back. I was then offered another job and they finally rang me saying sorry they hadn't been in touch and was I still available. Totally messed up my finances last month leaving me paying out for childcare and no income. Unbelievable!

    Healthcare Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cheadle, North West England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Priory Group (Cheadle, North West England, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I initially applied through the priory website which is not the best website as it would often not let me sign in. However after initial submission, I was very quickly emailed an offer of a phone interview. The phone interview was relatively straightforward, asked about my reasons for applying for the role and my understanding of the role/ what qualities I believe a HCA requires (e.g. empathetic, caring, good communicator, consistent, organised, respectful etc)

    I was immediately offered an in person interview for the following week after the 10 minute phone interview. I was told by the phone interviewer to research the hospital I was interviewing at and to have good knowledge of their services.

    At the interview I was say across from 2 panel members (a nurse and ward manager) who were very accommodating and put me at ease. To start off they asked some general questions like the ones mentioned in the phone interview (what do I know about the hospital, why did I apply for the role, what are the duties of the role, what are my strengths and skills that I can bring to the role, my experience in care). Then I was asked a progression of situational questions about a patient (i.e. what would I do if the patient self-harmed or asked me to stay after my shift or told me something confidential or something about another member of staff). I was also asked about what I think makes a good team and what role I play within a team. I was offered the job immediately after interview and the time flew by!! İt was a great interview experience
