    Graduate Scheme Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 months - interviewed at EDF Energy in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewer was a single phase interview due to previously working for them. Phoned the human resources team and organised an interview, they took approximately 2 months to get back to me, and I had my interview that week when they finally did. After the interview it took a further 3 months for them to get back to me about whether or not I had the job.

    Interview Questions

The question was about civil design, of a power plant, and what are the defences that you would consider, then pushed it towards flooding issues.   View Answer
