Speed Interview?

The couple of times I've used it, it's sent a passcode to my phone. Perhaps it's been updated since, or perhaps I'm a bit of an IT Biff.
The desktop/laptop app has to be authenticated with a passcode if you haven’t used it for a while, otherwise you’re straight in as @NSP says. It’s been like that as long as I’ve used WhatsApp on a desktop, which must be 5 years or so.
 
I see a pattern forming here wrt inapporiate dress for a given situation...


I won't be mentioning "the incident" at rinteln (specs ward, early 90s)

I would like 47 other incidents to be taken into consideration or forgotten about as well

North Yorks Police would like closure of a unicorn seen w@nking on the hard shoulder of the M1 Southbound last November.

I am having a speed interview on Thursday afternoon.
Basically I applied for a job last week with a major company just on the off chance, anyway they got back to me pronto and yesterday I had a telephone interview which went well and then I had to do an online test which I'm pretty sure I got 100% on.
So, they have phoned me this morning and said I have a speed interview tomorrow on whatsapp .

Basically has anyone experience/advice of this? Bear in mind I'm in my 50s so not a dynamo on stuff like this.

If you need the money then you need the money, but nothing reputable recruits anything substantial this way.

Well, it turns out I got duff info, it was a normal interview with head of HR.
Tbf, he was ok and we got on well, ended up talking about football .
it went really well, approximately 45 mins.
will find out tomorrow or monday. I'm employed anyway, so if they make me an offer I can take it or leave it.

Best meetings like that - you spend minimal time checking out the bona fides then the rest of it working out if you 'fit'.

I swaer on mi horses life this is pukka gen. Back in the day I went to a recruitment firm in Holbourn to register for work with them, a little girl for it WAS she got my CV ,references and completed application form and then we generally discussed the vacancy for which I had an Interest , my paperwork was impeccable and on paper I was a good candidate for interview . Then she said oops I've missed something off and popped out to the back office for a second and came back with a pot of colored cardboard sticks , she slung them on the table and siad please pick these up in order of colour preference . Why? was my lively response because I'm nothing if not an inquiring wee soul. She said it's a psychometric test we now do . Oh yus said I , how does it work then ?
I'm not allowed to tell you , ok, what does it prove then . Oh it measures if you are a right person for the job ...

Aha , So my Fellowship certificate of my professional body ,my top class references and experience plus the copy of my Hayes and Meyers psychometric test could be wrong and I'm not a person who should be working in accounts then but your little sticks will confirm this or tell you that I realy should be an Astronaut then ?

Look I said , if you place me your company stands to obtains at least five k finders fee plus the chance to make a relationship which ensures that I look to you first when I need temps , and I will, but all this hinges on how I pick up colourd sticks ? yes said she firmly . Well that's sad because you are not an agency that I would be conformable using in any shape or form.

Duly placed in a similar post by another agency who then reaped the rewards. This was in The 1990s when consultants selling black magic options were rife in the City.

Yes I did get a chance to remind them of this lash up at a business convention later that year year when they were trying to sell their wares .
Forget the coloured sticks the ability to write coherently is always a prerequisite I find, cant think why you failed.
