Difficult Interview

Graduate Safety and Risk Engineer Interview

Graduate Safety and Risk Engineer
Loughborough, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at GL Noble Denton in February 2014.

Interview Details – Initial online application including essay questions, CV, and cover letter.

Telephone interview 5-6 weeks after sending off application form. It began with an introduction and a bit about the company, and then asked the usual HR style questions (why DNV GL, why safety, what do you know about the company, etc), a lot on my degree and modules, a lot of emphasis on extracurriculars, and finally the scenario that has been described by others.

After receiving my invite to the assessment centre I had to complete psychometric tests, they were incredibly difficult (bear in mind I found most psychometrics for other companies reasonably easy), but everyone scores badly on them.

The assessment centre was a great experience, very well run and enjoyable. The HR interview was standard and the technical interview was just basic fire & explosion engineering as well as common sense. You also have to give a presentation, do a surprisingly fun group exercise, and an individual business case study.

I received an offer within a few days of the assessment centre.

Interview Question – What is the one thing your previous jobs have taught you?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I absolutely loved the look of the work that was being done and the company from a professional/technical side, and the older staff were very friendly and agreeable, but I felt like the graduate culture was far from what I was looking for in a graduate job as they seemed more focused on telling us about the constant opportunities to drink mid-week rather than talking more about their work.

Graduate Engineering Program Interview

Graduate Engineering Program
Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at GL Noble Denton in February 2013.

Interview Details – Online application, 45 min telephone interview, online psychometric tests, assessment centre (general and tech interview, group discussion, written exercise), results 2 days later.

Interview Questions

  • Some tricky engineering questions in technical interview   View Answer
  • You are waiting for a piece of information from a colleague to complete your work but he is no where to be seen and the deadline in imminent. Your boss asks for the work, what do you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Phone call 2 days later from the European recruitment manager detailing the contract and conditions verbally, very much a two way thing and very informal. Good chance to ask questions you didn't get a chance to at assessment centre. Formal welcome 2 weeks later by a supervisor in your future department.
