    Bike Mechanic Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belfast, Northern Ireland
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Halfords (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone interview, very odd, seems to have been conducted from someones house as I could hear a child crying in the background, got through to the next "road test" and booked this online, only to receive an email saying the position was filled by the store manager and the road test was cancelled. The same position was nearly immediately readvertised.
