Graduate Mechanical Engineering Interview

Graduate Mechanical Engineering

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at GSK Consumer Healthcare in March 2014.

Interview Details – 2 days of assessment centre. before that, a lot of online test/ online video interview etc leading to an AC offer. 1st day AC was introduction, presentation and a written test (by surprise - wasn't told about it); we got to live in a 4 star hotel overnight, dinner with current grads and staffs. 2nd day was very intense, competency interview, technical interview, role play, group exercise and ur presentation prepared beforehand. GSK house in london is a very nice glass building, professional but with a relax atmosphere, fountains and high street style corridor.

Internal Communication Interview

Internal Communication
Brentford, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at GSK Consumer Healthcare in September 2013.

Interview Details – The process was badly managed from start and had no finish. Emails were never sent to arrange interviews, rooms were not booked when I turned up for second interview, I received a rejection in error then was told interviews were still taking place and I would hear the following week latest. Two month later I have still heard nothing despite chasing. Creates a terrible impression of the culture and organisation, which is a real shame. Recruitment process needs totally professionalising. I'm still waiting for the outcome...

Interview Question – Use competency based questions - not just experience but behavioural so no right answer. Just check out their values and prepare.   View Answer

Interview Details – Applied online and received an email within a week to schedule an online interview with Sonru. The interview was recorded and assessed remotely. There were 5 questions and about 3.5min each to answer the questions. Most everything was behavioral; the only question that dealt with the programme was "Why are health outcomes important for GSK and the NHS?"
