Literally, if you have a brain and just be nice its a piece of cake, most likely the easiest interview you will ever have in your life.
stage 1: The entry
All you do here is just literally sign in to say I'm here, you then fill in some forms (you don't need them completed before the interview itself so you can fill it up as the day progresses
Stage 2: The ID stage
They make you wait in a room with your passport and other ID, they photocopy it etc.
Oh, btw...make sure you do't bring in a fake passport...some wise guy had that bright idea...that didn't turn out too well for him
Stage 3: The interview
This is the actual interview. A person just asks you questions that have been mentioned in this thread so I won't bother repeating them. The most noticable ones however I will just to reinforce it.
"Take those glasses under your chair and tell me what you smell"
Mine was plain water and mint....literially...believe me you can see **** floating around...theres no way your gnna mistake it for anything even with a blocked nose. Don't worry about this unless you have no sense of smell. Then there's a sight test, thsi is your normal eye test and then a colour blind test, in which you just read the numbers off the sheet.
The most noticable question i was asked was, "how would you deal with an angry person"..just chat a load of **** on how you would calm them down and explain how they need to STFU...naah lol i kid abt that last part XD, the calm down and listening to their problem should suffice.
Stage 4: Post interview
Congratz the interview is now officially over, but there's more **** for you to do.
If you were lucky enough (like me) to have been a candidate for the x-ray position you'll have to go through a lil test of IDing bombs (don't worry they're on the computer, you won't have to diffuse anything). The pass rate is 70% and that's 40/56....I got 40/56 on the dot lol. This is a little tricky i have to say but if you don't pass this don't worry hey'll just put you in another position.
Stage 5: The finalization
Last one, here they make sure your application online has been filled in correctly and actually includes the 5 year history they asked for and have 2 references of which are also 5 years or more...After this your done and all you do is wait for the CRB /CBR (don't care which way round it is) to be done and volla.
The X-Ray pay is around £10/h and everything else was £8.50 I was told.
Mine literially wen't just like that...Quicker than going to your GP...certianly more interesting espicially when someone forgets to bring their ID and brings a fake passport along.
lasts around 2 hours i'd say.
