    Thanks in advance!
    the questions on the technical side were just about what my roles were, what duties, etc. what software id worked with regards imaging, any experience of online testing. experience with MIS software. also how you deal with very annoying staff, and what areas of my job i feel i specialise in (support, networking, repair etc).
    this was done by the head of IT and by a support manager from RM.
    the other interview by the head was more based around how i deal with people, what if i didnt like the job, why i want to leave where i am and stuff like that.

    one of the questions to me was what if somebody asked you a problem and you didn't know the answer to it. i said that being honest is key, tell them you dont know, and that you will research the problem/solution. also never to give exact times on repairs/fixes and make sure staff are aware so you dont get in a trap of 'you said it would be ready'.

    if theres anything else, feel free to PM me or ask here, and good luck

    Bit of a step up but I'm sure I'll cope

    Thanks to Russ for the help he gave me pre-interview

    I'll still be around here though!
    No probs at all glad it went well..

    Welcome to the dark side now that you are an RM card carrying member...

    I’m willing to concede that they appear to of improved with age, my dealings with them 8 ish years ago left me less than impressed, the support was awfull.
