    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society.

    Interview

    Applied for role by emailing the interviewer director.Heard back within a couple of days that they would be in touch with an interview date, then 2 weeks later had the date set for a further week later. Initial interview with two people, but had not been told this would be the case before attending.

    Interview Questions

    • None, very basic questions with the last question being what was my current salary. Excellent interview until this point and then current salary appeared to out price me for the role. a   Answer Question
