    Volunteer Community Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Victim Support (London, England).

    Interview

    I applied and they got back to me quickly. They do their interviews through another company and had the wrong time listed for me. I felt the questions were weirdly worded and I found it difficult to express my skills. I also asked for feedback, twice, after I found out I didn't get the job but never received it. There was a task to do before the interview started which you were given ten minutes to complete.
