    Clinical Trial Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University College London (London, England) in January 2019.

    Interview

    30 minute test (2 questions) and 45 minute interview.

     The team were lovely, and I got the opportunity to meet everyone and ask lots of questions. The only downfall is that I didn’t receive any feedback from my interview, despite several emails asking. I think this is a shame since they were very quick to give me a decision, but not quick to give me feedback or any kind of response to my emails after they have declined me the job offer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at University College London.

    Interview

    Invited for a face to face interview with a panel of 3 interviewers. Very serious, not relaxed atmosphere. First 30 mins of the interview was a written skill assessment. Candidates were given two scenarios and asked how they would deal with each. The scenario I remember is listed below.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University College London (London, England) in May 2011.

    Interview

    The intervieww process consisted of three stages: video assessment, personality test and online assessment. The video assessment was a little bit awkward but you just need to make you do not seem like you are reading any notes and make sure you look at the camera otherwise they will reject you; you do not need any preparation for the personality test as it is quite straightforward and the online assessment simply consists of easy competency questions

    Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University College London.

    Interview

    A panel of 4 interviewers. Told at the end of the interview that this was the 1st stage of a two stage process. I thought this was very unprofessional! This information should have been given when the job was advertised or at the offer of an interview. The next informal stage required another panel of people who had no idea what my job would entail or how their work would impact my role. Then a test and a third stage interview. All this for a £27K job!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University College London (London, England) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. I was invited via email to an interview. I took a practical test, and I was then interviewed by a panel of 5 people. Standard interview questions to evaluate competencies. However, a few hours later this turned out to be the most bizarre interview I've ever attended.

    I'm a good judge of interview performance as I had worked in recruiting teams in the past. I knew for a fact that I had been confident, articulate, and well prepared. One person in the panel, who had a very high position in the department, gave me clear signs that she wanted me for this role. To my astonishment, this high ranking person called me herself a few hours later to tell me that they didn't want me for the job because I was not confident and articulate enough. I have never heard such an illogical evaluation before, especially for points that I know I'm good at. I'm glad they didn't hire me and I won't be applying there anymore.
