    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Weightmans (Birmingham, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    I had two interviews. The first one was with 2 members of the team and the second one was with another 2. So in total I met with 4 different people.

    It was quite relaxed, which is good but I felt like it was far too relaxed and I got the impression that the people who interviewed the second time didn’t really want to be there. Quite poorly organised too, they weren’t prepared and by the impression I got they had forgotten about the interview. The first interview however was the opposite, much better.

    Both of the interviews were pretty much exactly the same though, so wasn’t really sure what the point was in having 2 apart from wasting time. Could have just had the one with the main people. I think even if I did get offered the position I would be very hesitant to take it due to the negative vibes I received in the interview.
