    I worked at Carillion as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Good team spirit, senior management took an interest in understanding the issues impacting day to day deliver

    Cons

    Work-life balance wasn't always great although recognition was given for the extra hours and effort put in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tine-off policies were very good in the subsidiary I worked for,. Career opportunities across the group weren't easy to find (although this was 2010 so might have changed)

    Graduate Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Carillion.

    Interview Details

    There was an initial phone call asking some basic questions about my CV, not like a phone interview but more like a confirmation of what I've send them. This was followed by an assessment centre where there was an exercise of listing things in order of importance after an airplane crash, an in-tray exercise, an exercise where we were given in teams of 4 a pack of A4 paper/paper clips and were asked to build a bridge with the available materials.

    Interview Questions
    • In the beginning of the assessement center, everybody had to say out loud one truth and one lie about himself. Everybody would try to guess which statement was true or false.   Answer Question
