    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an invitation for an online test a couple of days later, the topics given were much more difficult than the job requirements, but I still made it passed and received an on-site interview invitation. The on-site experience was not so good. I just found the people I met were not passionate about their work at all. I could felt the interviewers were quite fake when giving their answers. I didn't think they were willing to work at cancer research.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed by two young employees who had never interviewed anyone before. Despite this, they were very professional and easy to talk to. I was also provided feedback about why I didn't get the role- didn't have as much experience as another candidate. However, I was offered a place in a clearing pool to be contacted by other departments.
