    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    All done via email, nice and organised. Got an interview, and they are very honest up front about the structure of the interview, advising you to answer in the SOAR/STAR format and that they will challenge you if you do not. No feedback initially until I asked, but then got a call from the interviewer who gave really clear and proper feedback.
    Interview

    Standard competency questions that require a structured SOAR/STAR style answer. You must prepare these examples!
