    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Coventry University.

    Interview

    Process took around 3-4 weeks, filled out application online then received email a few weeks later asking to come to interview.
    Went for the interview (including test) and was told at the end I would receive a notification earlier the following week. 2 weeks went by, no notification, so i decided to call the 'helpline', answer from the receptionist was that 'as there were many new applications, this was the reason for a slow response, you will hear back'.
    So again waited and then decided to go onto LinkedIn to search for the role I applied for, low and behold the position was filled by another professional! Still to this day I have not received anything since attending the interview.
    I would not be writing this review if I had at least received an email confirmation of being unsuccessful in the application, this is the least the university should do haven taken the time to attend the interview...
