    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days - interviewed at deVere Group.

    Interview Details

    I had only one phone interview, and discussed my resume and had to tell the employer a little about myself. I was asked if I knew what the company does and made some small talk.

    Interview Questions
    • Not many difficult questions. Mostly asking why you think you would fit in, what they do, and what you want to get out of the internship. Pretty basic stuff, nothing too difficult.   Answer Question

    Graduate Program Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at deVere Group in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was invited to a conference call where someone from HR explained the interview process and answered questions. Then there was a telephone interview with basic questions such as when have you shown leadership skills. Then there was an assessment centre and I was in a group of about 20 people. There was an English and maths test, group exercises and a one on one interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions in the telephone interview and in person were very basic, generic questions you will have been asked a hundred times before. The most unexpected task was role play: I had to stand up in front of the whole group and explain why, as a plumber, the group should vote for me to stay as we were stranded on an exotic island. This is where you have to make some sort of joke or interesting comment, and this is where I failed. I had 2 minutes to think and tried to explain a made up way of distilling sea water. Complete flop.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at deVere Group in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the job using an add posted on caterer.com, got contacted for an interview which i attended but very unprofessional management with lots of messing me about with times and days where twice i showed up for interviews the person i was having the interview with wasn't actually in the building.

    was given very little information before starting, just told where to be on what date and what to wear and that was about it. bit of a shambles from the start basically but the staff were trying their best with bad management.

    Interview Questions
    • interview didnt really pose any difficult questions but i was interviews by 3 different people and never with each other so a bit of a shambles and they didnt know what the previous interviewer had or hadnt covered but didnt ask either as if they didnt care.   Answer Question
