I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Skipton, England, England) in Feb 2021

Interview

First had a telephone interview which lasted about 15 minutes, just going through what I knew about the company, previous work experience and why I’d be a good fit for the role. Was accepted onto the next stage which was a Microsoft teams interview. First part was a sort of ‘tour’ and description of what we’d be doing, and then a role play exercise which was relevant and straightforward. Pretending to sell a phone contract to a customer. Next there was a strength-based interview which I enjoyed. Got a call the next day saying I’d been successful.

Interview

Telephone interview. Asked basic questions about the company and the role. Asked for a 5 year employment history. Woman seemed professional and friendly. However when it came to talking about 2 years unemployed due to ill health, that’s when her demeanour changed. They don’t employ disabled people so don’t apply if you are.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Skipton, England, England)

Interview

Filled out an application, had a maths and English online test, then had a phone test, then had a full interview day with 7 other people including a group task and more maths tests. Was annoyed as I'd been put in for a role I didn't apply for which included heavy maths application, I applied for the creative role. Traveled very far and spend a lot of money, other candidates were also frustrated as they had to do tests for a role they didn't want. Staff were lovely.
