I interviewed at London Borough of Hackney

Interview

Straightforward. The panel was revealed before the interview. Slightly unorganized. Feedback took two and a half weeks to get to me and most of it was not relevant to the interview.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at London Borough of Hackney (London, England) in May 2022

Interview

An application with basic questions on experiences. An invitation for an intreview was followed requesting a presentation for a panel. I thought the intreview would be professional and I will be challenged against my experience but unfortunately one of the panel seemed racist and aggressive. He only liked, on the presentation, how we measure project progress as if he would like to learn it rather than intreviewing me. I think the council's culture is awkward and non- professional. The first time in my life I see a submitted format of application, in which they hide your name and background to the panel as it was clear later why, as one of the seniors explicitly was aggitated, irritated, and fidgeting after presenting.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at London Borough of Hackney (London, England) in May 2022

Interview

A form-based questionnaire with some scenarios, lightly technical, freeform answers. A second stage technical where you are given a task in advance but then run through it live via screen sharing, writing code as you go. A bit clumsily done. Immediately following, a mixed panel interview with soft skills questions and pseudo technical questions. Many questions here were basically how well you know the AWS product line up. Some technical questions were so simple that it felt like trick questions. Was told a decision due within a day but never heard back. I didn't perform very well in the interview, but the lack of follow-up was disappointing. The post has since been readvertised for the third time.

Interview Questions
  • Write Terraform to do X A "what could be the cause?" type question that I can't remember too well, but the answer was DNS.

Interview

the process is very very slow and the online form far too time consuming considering the job isn't a very difficult. I feel that the interview was a rehash of the same thing as the questions asked at the application stage

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at London Borough of Hackney in Aug 2021

Interview

It was on Google Meet. Firstly, there were technical issues. It was not possible to share attachments into the message chat so delayed start of interview. Questions were shouted in a rather condescending way with one of the interviewers being extremely pushy and borderline rude. It was obvious they had little interest in my lesson which I had spent time and energy preparing. I was told at the end of the interview that this was not a permanent job despite the original advertisement stating so. I felt like I wasted my time doing this interview.

Interview Questions
  • A lot of questions on Ofsted. Some questions were so long you needed a pen and paper to remember what was actually being asked.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at London Borough of Hackney

Interview

Standard online application and at least 1 week notice on interview. HR recruitment team are very good at making contact/personable. However officers conducting interview were brisk and badgering for answers. They failed at shortlisting as I said on my form I didnt have ALL the experience req. Wasted my time - don't shortlist people and then ask Qs they wont be able to answer!
