    Mental Healthcare Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Darlington, North East England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Priory Group (Darlington, North East England, England) in August 2019.


    Applied online, received a call a couple of weeks later asking why I was interested in the job and if i could come in for an interview. The interview involved a quick introduction about Priory Group and the hospital and a talk about the main responsibilities of a Mental Healthcare Assistant. There was then a group task followed by an individual interview. There also involved a short literacy test.
