I have been working at LSE full-time
Quality of teaching and career support
Library is always full, campus is full
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LSE in October 2017.
I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at LSE.
All via the job portal, but at the email I received it was stated that I was replacing somebody. I didn't quite understand why they should include this info. Interview was competency based. The interview was a three person panel with a test beforehand. However at the email inviting me for the interview it was stated that there would be two persons and at the end only one of them attended and I learned about the other two on the spot. The head of the panel was very snobbish, laughing most of the time which kept me wondering what's going wrong and with an attitude as if she was conducting the research for the whole department (while she was the team leader of the research administrators). The second member of the panel on the other hand was as if she has lost her smile. They looked so prejudiced- they could as well not invite me for interview if they thought it would be a waste of time! The third poor guy was trying to compensate the situation.
Questions were standard interview questions, and completed an excel and word test (related to job). They also asked me about customer service and I was a little bit surprised since the interview wasn't for a sales assistance role!
