    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at University of Leeds (Leeds, England) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Application, interview. Interview involved 30 min test of 3 tasks and 20 minute interview.
    Was a slightly strange interview. Noone interviewing me stood up to shake my hand when I entered, and there were no questions asked which suggested they had even read my cover letter or cv. Only the set questions were asked and no sub questions or follow on questions were asked. Very much question/ answer situation, which is often more uncomfortable in an interview setting as it gives you no time to get relaxed.

    Test consisted of proof reading text & creating a news article
