    Human Resources Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fáilte Ireland (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Possibly the most atrocious interview I've ever had to endure. Three person panel of quite senior staff who could not have been less interested in listening to my well prepared STAR format answers. I got a distinct impression they wanted the interview over with (despite stating that it would be about 45 minutes, and I was sticking to a reasonable answer length) so maybe they had a person in mind for the role already. Or maybe they just wanted their lunch. Some of the best prep I have ever done and just felt completely belittled. I got cut off mid-sentence and had four years of experience in a reputable organisation picked apart as irrelevant (no consideration at all of the HR duties that matched the job description word for word). Left feeling as though it was not a place I wanted to work, if they were to be my colleagues. In the end, not only did I not get an offer, but they never even contacted me with an outcome of the interview. This was particularly ironic considering the role they were recruiting for. Such a shame because the Admin who booked my interview was lovely. As were the reception staff. Had looked at glassdoor before and seen miserable reviews. Thought I'd chance it, but nope. It is as miserable as other reviewers have stated. Do yourself a favour, find someone else to work.
