    Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Jaguar Land Rover.

    Interview Details

    First, a pre-screen phone call with the HM, then passed a timed aptitude exam, then finally a four person at once interview. I'm not sure what that exam proves as far as work performance; it was excessive and not easy, but I passed it. The interview was fairly friendly, however it had canned thorough questions that are nearly difficult to answer on the spot, but I was able to answer them. I thought I did quite well through out the whole process. Then a week later I got a follow up call, right before the HM was going into a meeting, so when I called back I was not able to reach them, but they said to give a time they could call the next day, which I did. They then did not call back during that time, but at a much later time. So after over 24 hours of false hope, they finally called me to tell me I didn't get the position. Probably one of the worst callback experiences I've ever had, an email would have been fine.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Jaguar Land Rover.

    Interview Details

    There were multiple rounds of interviews. Final round was a skype interview with about 6 people. Questions weren't impossible, just long. They were impressed with my skills with MS office, didn't seem to get that everyone in college now can do it. Seemed a little old school but in a charming way. They had me pick between 2 different positions, each one had very specific and lengthy job descriptions.

    First phone call for 30 mins and then in-person interview. Interview is not so tough. Mostly behavioral questions and strategic questions. Make sure you know about company and project management. The person who took my interview and the HR were quite friendly and helpful. Confidence is what you need to show.

    Procurement Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Coventry, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in Coventry, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Jaguar Land Rover in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    From my initial online application to getting to the interview took 5 months with some testing in between - communication prior and during the interview was good but then i waited 6 weeks for any feedback with me having to call them to ask. I eventually got told I hadn't been selected but 8 weeks later I still don't have the feedback I requested so quite disappointing in the end.

    Maintenance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Coventry, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in Coventry, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Jaguar Land Rover in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied via agency and was sent the online tests ( numeracy and verbal ) within a week. After completion took about 2 weeks for a reply that i was sucessful and that i was invited to attend the assessment centre. Had about three weeks prep for this, i was sent an email telling me what to expect of the day. It was only about 3 hours long and it included a behavioural interview and a technical interview ( did not have to repeat the tests ). Behavioural interview was just to find out about your self, also a few competancy questions like about team work and pressure etc. nothing to stressful. The technical interview was more around your current role, experience, health and safety and some circuit diagrams where you have to identify symbols etc. I was told within three hours that i had passed the assessment centre and that i was invited to a trade test stage which was in coventry and a full day of tests. This is a challange to find out what you know and dont. ( There isn't much info on this stage and i think its role specific but there is practical and written tests). I have now been waiting for two weeks for an answer. I was told it would be a few weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult about the interviews. Just prepare well some real life situations that you have been in and demonstrated the skills they are looking for. ( There 8 key business behaviours).   Answer Question
