    I have been working at E.ON UK

    Pros

    supportive attitudes, good commission, decent promotion prospects, approachable management, ethical policies, good communication

    Cons

    High pressure, a lack of ground up understanding, some bullying, poor systems

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take more time to understand why some people react and perform differently from others. Talk, but listen more. Use less buzzword in interviews and take into account skills and experience over people who have been coached in the right words to say

    Finance Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at E.ON UK in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    1) Online application form with SJT.
    2) Online tests: standard stuff; do lots of practice online.
    3) Phone interview: competency based; research the competencies, predict their questions, have concise examples demonstrating achievement organised in STAR format.
    4) Assessment Centre:
    -Presentation introducing self + interview: competency based + test of company/sector knowledge and motivations
    -Role play: mock meeting with a colleague in which you have to negotiate through an issue.
    -Case study: presentation and discussion on a booklet of information outlining several issues and opportunities faced by a fictional company.
    -Mini-case: 10 mins to discuss your thoughts related to a potential investment opportunity for the company based on 2-3 pages of very incomplete information.
    You have prep time for all activities except the mini-case, which is a test of your ability to think on your feet.

    E.ON seem to prefer contacting candidates by phone when inviting them to the next stage. There didn't seem to be a website I could log into to check my progress but I found the process to be efficient and quite fast. If you're interested in Finance positions, definitely apply early: these schemes closed earlier than many others for all the companies I applied to in Autumn 2014.

    You go down to Nottingham the day before the Assessment Centre. They put you in a hotel a short walk from their office and send a graduate trainee to have dinner with you. Have some questions ready for them and spend the evening making friends with the other candidates.
