    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Appalling, frustrating and chaotic.

    I applied online and recieved an email asking me to go to their website to select an interview slot.

    When I went to the site it required me to fill in a number of additional forms before allowing me to proceed to select a slot (not a big deal but would have been good to mention).

    When I got to the select a slot part of the site there were no interview times uploaded. I emailed to tell them that there were no slots for me to select from.

    About 10 days passed before I recieved a reply saying that the interview panel were not available on alternative days to those listed and therefore they would not be proceeding with my application.

    Awful recruitment process.

    Don't waste your time.
