Midland Heart Interviews
- Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, EnglandNo OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult InterviewApplication
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Midland Heart (Birmingham, England) in Mar 2023
InterviewFirst interview was a role play including performance management with a member of staff and then advice from a phone call. Great experience, warm environment. Second interview (final stage) was a panel of three people, one of which was incredibly stand-offish, uninterested and rude. I'm not one for delving into energy, but the room felt toxic and the temperature raised. No guidance or clarification was given on the questions, of which there were four for the hour. After the second question I knew the job was not mine for the taking as they repeatedly mentioned they have a specific 'picture' in mind of who they want for this job. Never been in an interview that I felt the interviewers piercing negativity. Have been told by past employees that it is one of the most negative places to work, and they couldn't be paid enough to go back. But after my first interview I felt so positively, shame! Wish I would've called it quits after the second question as it was a waste of time. Application process good otherwise and the other staff members are friendly. Email sent as soon as I walked out of the building letting them know I have no intention of continuing with the process.Interview
