    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at RWE npower (Sunderland, North East England, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    An online application was followed by a verbal and situational online test. Passing these two stages then led to a telephone interview and finally an assessment centre. The assessment day involved a strengths based presentation, 1-2-1 interview, in-tray exercise and a group activity. This lasts a whole day and it's quite intense but the time does fly.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at RWE npower in March 2012.

    Interview

    My phone interview was for the 2012 graduate scheme. Two weeks after i submited my application i got an email saying they would like to have a phone interview in order to process my application. I booked tha date on their site and i got the call exactly the time i had booked. The interviewer was a young guy part of the recruitment team. He took notes of my answers in order to forwrd them to the recruiting manager. The questions were 8 in total and they were separated in two parts. The first was about my reasons to have chosen Npower. Why choose engineering, the energy sector, why Npower in particular and what set of skills would i need for the particular position. The second part were competency based questions about 1. Focus 2. Driving performance, timeline 3. Organisational skills 4. Sharing ideas Overall, i felt really relaxed during the interview and the interviewer was really polite and friendly.

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at RWE npower in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was a bit confused by the last questions. What skills do you need for the chosen position? (marketing) I started talking and giving examples but the interviewer stopped me and said she will ask for examples in the next question. By the time I finished my answer I forgot what skills I was talking about and got lost :( Then she asked for examples of the mentioned skills. And the last question was about skills I wanted to develop (or weaknesses).

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at RWE npower in December 2011.

    Interview

    Very pleasant interview experience. Seems like it would be a nice learning environment. I was asked a mix of competency (when did you explain to someone something complicated in a simple way, how did you go out of your way to help a colleague...) and technical questions (financial instruments, asset valuation...). Even during the interview I felt as though the interviewer at one point was taking on the role of a mentor when trying to get me to give the correct answer. Had to do a presentation. Got positive feedback however they went with someone who they found to match their skills more closely.
