    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Glasgow (Glasgow, Scotland) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First, i completed an online application that requires answering Essential and Desired criteria questions.
    After a week of the closing date of application, I received an interview invitation.
    The interview had a panel of 3 Female staff members from different departments. They asked all the competency-based questions, very similar to the online application ones.
    The interview lasted for about 20 minutes.

    2 of the females never even smiled during the interview and were asking questions like robots. I was surprised they didn't even know what my qualification stands for and was recruiting for the position.
    It was a very bad experience.
