    Assistant Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BBC (London, England).

    Interview

    The process involves filling in an online application which was successful and led to an interview. I was extremely prepared for the interview. From the moment I walked into the room the atmosphere was negative. I understand this can be an interview technique but I understood it more to be the norm for this organisation. Overall the experience was very disappointing and disheartening.
