Ricardo Head of Rail Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Head of Rail Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Ricardo in April 2009.
Interview Details – Initial communication was via an agency, though there was direct communication with the organisation. The position on offer and its corresponding role was not thoroughly thought out. The implications of what the organisation was trying to achive in the timescales declared was not fully understood. The interview was vey informal and easy going with both of the interviewers being both friendly and hospitable. Though they were not asking for candidates with powertrain experience, they clearly were looking for that technical capability. The organisation was suffering as part of the economic downturn in the auto industry and seeking to expand into the rail industry.
