    I worked at ESBI part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    |Interview was very professional and evidence based. They focus on 'Competencies' and when you say you have competency in an area e.g. Leadership, then you must be able to cite specific examples showing this competency. The examples should state a problem, describe how it was dealt with and then say what the end result was. Interviewers were all very fair and pleasant - interested in whether I would fit into the job, not interested ion showing me how superior they were etc..

    Cons

    Need to have specific examples worked out in advance rather than try to think of them on the spot. Examples will be probed into minutely to see if they are genuine so hard to spoof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some competencies are bull**it, and tracking them in an interview can be wasteful - could be easier to track a bunch of competencies together e.g. example of a project you managed would show all competencies.

    Summer Production Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8+ weeks - interviewed at ESBI in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring done through external recruitment agency, initially applied with a CV, then got a call back for a phone interview - and after the phone interview there was a face-face interview up in Dublin, with 1 week in between these interviews, it then took 3 weeks after the interview to get a call back to say I was given the position, with only a weeks notice before I was due to start, which was a little short notice. Phone interview and face to face questions were exactly the same, asked for real life scenarios of where we had been in certain situations, and were asked to use the STAR approach to answer these questions, we knew this going into the interviews
