    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nationwide Building Society.

    Interview

    Waste of time!

    I turned up and the reception staff were friendly but robotic.

    The interview lasted less than 10 mins.

    The interviewer did not stand up when I entered the room, did not great and seemed unprofessional.

    There was no warm up, such as "Did you get here ok" or how are you. Not even an introduction to who they were.

    I asked them more questions.

    I did not get an offer due to being over experienced. YOU HAD MY CV SO WHY WASTE MY TIME!
