    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertfordshire County Council (United Kingdom) in Oct 2021

    Interview

    Dreadful experience. Had an interview with the adult care services team for which they said I did "really well" ,but, I didn't get the job. Few days later they contact me and recommended me to their debt collection team for yet ANOTHER interview, and same story once more but this time they said I didn't show enough customer service experience haha An absolute joke!!!
    Interview
