    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cancer Research UK (London, England (UK)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    Informal but intimidating. Left feeling like applicants are ten a penny and it wouldn’t matter if you had issues as there’s always someone else.
    Ended up declined the job offer. A very confusing and unsettling experience
