    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NHS (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Process took just under 2 weeks. I applied online, had an interview 1 week after the closing date. Negative interview experience, they were not friendly or encouraging. Asked a total of 10 questions, 5 from each panel member.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were scenarios. I.e. What would you do if a consultant called in sick 30 minutes before the first appointment.

      How would you handle working at no permanent desk?

      How would you deal with an angry patient.   Answer Question
