I actually think they forgot to interview me. Just a couple of quick calls and I was in.


#5

I’ve had a five person interview panel before. Luckily it was four Oxford graduates and a Cambridge graduate and they were all basically the same person, so it was easy enough to get a rapport going.


#6

I did once get a job via an informal chat with the managing director and production manager in a pub one lunch time. They knew I was capable. My CV and recommendation made that obvious. That just had to decide whether or not they could put up with seeing me every day.


#7

Which Cabinet position do you currently hold?


#8

This is pretty much every interview panel I’ve had to deal with for the last 15 years.


#9

Two, but the second was very informal and I’m 99% sure I was the only person they had back for a 2nd interview.

trying to figure out who the two people who’ve applied are. i know who one of them is coz i told her to apply, but not the other one (its an internal role). hmmmmm

As a contractor, rarely have to jump through many hoops. For current role, I turned up for an interview on the Wednesday and they said at the interview that I could have the job so long as I could start on the Friday as that was the incumbent’s last day and they wanted to ensure there was a handover. Said handover was 3 hours so I’m not sure how much value I got from it tbh tbf. Was supposed to be going to see Alien Covenant that Friday too - not sure if missing that was actually a blessing or not :thinking:

For a previous role, turned up to what I though was an interview and they photographed me for a proper lanyard pass which seemed a but excessive and then showed me to a desk. Turns out they just decided from my CV that I was fine for the role and they just wanted me to start that day. Was a bit weird tbh tbf…


#17

I wrote my name and address on a scrap of paper and handed it to the admin person. I was expecting an application form in the post. Instead, I got a letter telling me to start on this day at this location.

This was for a school caretaker over uni summer hols. No checks. No interviews. Different now.


#18

The last bit to your post is chilling :smiley:


#19

I had an interview a few months ago that had a five person panel. We were all sat around a massive round table and they all clustered on one side and I was on the other. It was for a political party and three of them were elected officials.

I generally feel uncomfortable in interviews but this was next level. I didn’t get it.
