    Human Resources Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Birmingham City University (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Once I filled and submitted an online application, I was called in for a 30 minute interview. The interview was conducted by two individuals who could be considered as peers only, because the 'supervisor' was called away on another meeting (unprofessional)! The entire interview process was uncomfortable and uninviting. I would consider holding an interview with an HR department would be an exceptional experience, considering they are aware of the processes.

    Not once, did I meet a supervisor or a manager. A very strange process indeed. Poor representation of the University.
