The Job Interview: Viewers fell in love with the candidates, but weren't keen on the interviewers


Tuesday night saw a group of people got through one of life's most excruciating experiences - interviewing for a new job.

Channel 4 filmed a total of eight candidates interviewing for two different jobs, one for an administration position at Low Cost Vans in South Wales, another for a assistant manager role at fancy Wickham House.

After a series of good and not-so-great interviews at the van firm, the candidates were whittled down to Ian, who was unemployed after being made redundant from his job at a wire brush company, and Jody, a 34-year-old single mum who was trying to make it back into the world of work after taking a break to focus on looking after her kids.

Both candidates were very popular with viewers, who admired how well they coped under pressure.

However, viewers didn't warm quite so well to the interviewers at Low Cost Vans, Rod and Lorraine.

But in the end the company redeemed itself by hiring Jody and offering Ian a job in another area of the company. Phew!

Next up was Wickham House in Berkshire, a luxury venue for weddings and special occasions, run by 58-year-old Philippa and her family. The budding hopefuls were whittled down to Isabel, a charity worker with a great eye for detail, and Amy, who was returning to work after concentrating on raising her son.

Both candidates proved popular on Twitter, although people couldn't help but want Amy to score a job to provide for her family.

But life just ain't fair sometimes, and Amy was overlooked for Isabel. Twitter was NOT happy.

We hope she finds the perfect position soon!
