    Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Neots, England

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oxfam (Saint Neots, England).

    Interview

    The job advertisement stated it was a very flexible role, I was contacted for an interview. I thought this would be ideal, so I could give my skills & time based around other commitments.

    The interview was not arranged locally- I would of assumed that due to it being a voluntary role the interviewees costs would of been kept minimal with paying for fuel & parking also.

    The interviewers was friendly, chilled & they seemed keen, until I discovered the hours are not flexible.

    It was suggested that I move my full time job hours around, to fit within this role.
    There has been no communication since, I’m more disappointed with a voluntary brand of treating people this way. No even a ‘ thank you for your time’
