I applied in-person. I interviewed at Royal Mail

Interview

They refused to interview me because my passport was in my maiden name. They said they would be unable to take me further due to name discrepancy despite me providing my marriage certificate. Pretty bizarre if you ask me.

Very straight forward- I just took my CV in to the "open day" and was offered a job that day. Take note though that the jobs are "first come first served" so get there early if you would prefer pick of the hours/days.

I applied online. I interviewed at Royal Mail (Luton, East of England, England, England)

Interview

I applied online then was invited for an interview. (One to one). The job timings mentioned in the interview were different than the advertised (mainly as it was to cover absence at different locations). The advertisement was misleading. Anyhow, I was not offered the job. Maybe I could try next time at another site.

Interview Questions
  • Can you be flexible in time (early morning start or late finish than what was advertised)?
