Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Stagecoach in February 2012.
Interview Details – Applied by post after missing an open day. Got the interview appointment sent next day.
Took about 3 hours. Started with a written arithmetic test (really easy - all addition and subtraction) and Highway code/ PCV perceprion test. I started these then got taken away from them to do a driving assessment.
Assessment was accompanied by two trainers. Pretty straightforward and had no problems with that.
Back to depot to finish what I had started then taken in for a panel interview.
Felt pretty confident, answered what they wanted, was complimented the whole way through - and in the end still didnt get it.
No idea why though have written to find out. Probably because I have long hair (male), even though they can't say that. Only reason I can think of.
Anyhoo, its a dawdle. Advice. Wear a suit (I had dress trousers and open kneck shirt on and much was made about my lack of tie - I had already searched on line and everyone commented on the cleanliness of their assessment vehicles, that was my reason for not going full bhuna with a suit), if you have long hair and are male I wouldn't bother.
They also asked my marital status and if I had kids, this may also have had a negative impact as I know it does in the trucking industry. Up to you how you answer that one.
I was asked basic geography of my region, customer service questions, collision management questions and the usual "why should we employ you" type questions.
