    Human Resources Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Bupa International in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I couldn't see the department, because they were interviewing for a position for someone they were firing. That was a mistake, because the office space was very small and crowded. Had I gone through the normal interview process, I probably would have not accepted the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bupa International in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview ('Why do you want to work for BUPA?, 'What do you know about BUPA and it's products?', a role play followed by a competency style question), once passed I was invited to an face to face interview which included an introduction to BUPA then a competency based interview with around 5/6 questions. I was then given a 15min letter writing task, replying to a complaint from a client who had not been contacted when he was told he would be.
    I was also asked about which role I would prefer and which hours want to go for (there are night, day and twilight shifts and 2 separate roles but they ultimately decide which role you are best for)

    Interview Questions
    • Most of the questions were the standard competency questions used including questions about a time I've shown great team work, a time when I've had a difficult decision/ had to give a difficult message, a time when I've shown exellant customer service.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not attempt a negotiation and it would be my feeling that it would not be a negotionable salary or hours.

    Housekeeping Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bearsden, Scotland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Bupa International in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    A 1:1 interview with Housekeeping Manager followed by a PVG background check which took around 4 weeks. Interview was very easygoing and enjoyable, felt more like a chat than an interview but I was asked all the right questions as you would expect at an interview. Quite a few personality question like "what are your stregths/weeknesses ?" e.t.c. No trick questions, pretty standard, straight forward interview.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a mail from HR Dept to come for the interview. There are basically 3 technical rounds one taken up by senior manager and 2 rounds by Head of the Department.
    After that there is a conversation with Assistant HR Manager regarding work culture and office timings.

    Negotiation Details
    There are very few CA students who opt for industrial training. So, one can negotiate on stipend confidently. Don't be afraid of loosing the offer.

    Financial Systems Support & Development Junior Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bupa International in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Communication from the manager/interviewer was frequent and informal before the interview.

    My single interview with the company was very relaxed, which I wasn't quite expecting (though it was for a industrial placement role).

    Questions were the standard "can you demonstrate this skill" type. After that was covered, a significant amount of time was spent talking about each other's hobbies and interests etc.

    As it was for a fixed-term, 12-15 month position I guess it was more about finding somebody that would fit in with that particular team rather than the organisation as a whole.

    Interview Questions
    • I did not expect the interviewer (who is now my team leader) to spend so much of the interview talking about hobbies and interests.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Very simple. I received a call, was offered the job and accepted.
