    Assistant District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Springs, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Coral Springs, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Severn Trent Services in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a panel interview consisting of four people. Two peers and immediate supervisor and his supervisor. Mostly the usual questions concerning my background and experience. They were particularly interested in my prior experience in the insurance industry and how that might be applicable to the position. I found this very interesting as there had been no mention of this insurance experience need in the job posting to which I replied. It struck me that there were additional aspects to the position that I needed to inquire about. This opened several lines of thinking and the potential interaction between the position and the other members of the District's support personnel.

    Interview Questions
    • Since a significant part of the position would be working with Boards of Supervisors and many of these people would have strong opinions how would I handle a board meeting if / when a Board member disagreed with my opinion or challenged my position?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The only item needed to be negotiated was the starting date.

    Administrative Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colmar, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Colmar, PA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Severn Trent Services in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I first met with the hiring manager. Since he knew people from my previous employer I felt like he didn't do his homework beforehand to see I worked there. He passed me off to the woman who currently had the job feeling as though he was going to call his old buddies to get the scoop on me. Then I was sent to HR to meet with a newly hired HR person. She was very nice just not a seasoned interviewer. The company is clearly old school. The woman referred to her manager as "Mr. xxx" If offered this position I would have turned it down. The building inside was beautiful. Just not a position for a modern forward thinking person.

    Water Operator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carmel, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carmel, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Severn Trent Services in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was easy and not difficult at all. Have to come to the plant, interview, take a tour of it and pass a drug test. It was not a problem at all and not anything to be nervous about at all. It isn't the most sought after job in the world so it isn't like you have a one hundred other applicants you need to beat out.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficult questions asked. There was only a few questions that were like "If this happens.......what would you do?" and things of that nature. Not hard at all.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation for me at all but I didn't come in with experience. I bet if you come in with certain water operator licenses you can negotiate more and get more money.
