    Application Details

    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.

    Maintenance Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coventry, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate 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

    Manufacturing Labour Analyst Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Jaguar Land Rover in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    - online application (it took 5 months to hear back from them)

    - Online testing (e.g. verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, diagrammatical reasoning). Not very hard but it is better to practice the tests online before.

    - Assessment event in Coventry which included a 10min presentation, a technical interview and a behavioural interview ...

    Step 1: presentation (duration : 30 minutes)
    The presentation is about a complex project you have been involved in which is relevant to the position you have applied to - you get this when you confirm your attendance to the assessment day, meaning you have a few weeks to prepare the presentation. The presentation is followed by 20 min of questions. Nothing too complicated about this, the questions are related to your project / what you have presented.

    Step 2: Technical interview (duration : 1 hour)
    The technical interview is in relation with the position you have applied for, mine was based mainly on data and data analysis. The assessor had approx. 10 specific questions (with sub-questions) you need to answer with specific examples (ideally using the CAR approach - Context/Actions/Results).

    Step 3: Behavioural interview (duration : 1 hour)
    I was asked specific questions based on every individual High Performance Behaviours (which can be found on their website). The assessor has specific questions (and sub questions) for each behaviour. Here again, you need to give specific example(s) from previous experience to answer each question.

    I received an answer within 2 days after the assessment event (but I was told within 3 weeks).

    The assessors are very nice, the event very well organised. The assessors are super friendly and are here to get as much as they can from you. If you can't thing about any specific example during the interviews, they will try and help you with further questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical interview:
      - How do you organise data ?
      - Tell me a time when you had to deal with cross functional team ? What was your approach ?

      - Behavioural interview
      - Tell me a time when you had to challenge someone's idea. What was the reaction, who did you challenge ?
      - Why do you want to work for JLR ?
      - Where do you think the company will be in 5 years time ?
      - Why do you think it is important to have good relationship at work ?
      - What are the different type of customers you could be facing ? (e.g. could be for instance the financial department, the final customer, the suppliers, ?....)
      - How do you recognise every single customer you may have to deal with ?
      - How would you face a situation where you have opposite / distinct objectives to achieve (which are not compatible) ?
