    Dwp Work Coach Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Department for Work And Pensions (London, England) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and completed the tasks. Invited to interview, which was a pre recorded video interview. I found this really stressful and difficult as I am generally rubbish at civil service style interviews (I'm from a careers adviser background and I love to talk) but for these interviews, you need to follow a strict STAR structure and make sure you hit all the key points of the civil service behaviours. I find this tedious and here's why. They are so strictly structured and only score for hitting all the points they need. If you get the points, you're in. This means they are hiring robots who can memorise and churn out unnatural content. A lot of work coaches are useless and have no idea how to deal with real people. Surely a good hire for a work coach is someone with experience in welfare, someone who knows about challenges faced by people and who can show empathy. Anyway I was offered a role but I was offered an alternative job and I took it as I couldn't in all honesty do this job and sanction vulnerable people during global pandemic to save the government a few quid. I would have to refer people to food banks in 2020. Welcome to Britain
