Hi guys I've got my virtual interview next Thursday has anyone done one yet? I've done online research at some possible questions all basic stuff why do you want to you, what do you want from the job, tell me about yourself etc.

Has anyone done one yet? Be interesting to see what they actually ask, I'm sure all getting these virtual interviews are wondering. So any actual questions would be amazing.

I'm also going to have to use my phone to do the video call, this will be ok right? The SCC said using a phone is fine.

Thanks

Sorry if I've missed a thread answering this
I have my virtual interview in the coming weeks. It would be nice to hear how you get on pal.

Hi guys,
Thank you again for all your replies. Unfortunately my interview didn't took place as the server was not working on the other end. I called recruitment
and was advised to send an email. They replied back and said they will rearrange another meeting and confirmed that their servers went down last week.

But today i received another email saying that I did not attend the meeting and therefore will not process my application any further. I'm confused.
I applied to work on the Isle of Sheppey.

Thanks, I called them and the person on the phone said she will make a note and look into it, nothing else. I guess I just have to wait and see.

Has anybody done the virtual interview yet? Mine is tomorrow so any questions they asked would be a help. I've done plenty of revision on line for questions such as . What is typical type of prisoner, how do you deal with pressure, what you want from the job. All I have good answers for.

Just be good if anyone has done there's yet to she's some light on it in more detail.

@jambogmail1 - I think your first up looking on here there hasn’t been many people offered this.

I would be very grateful to know how you get on and what the interview entails.

Thanks
