    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Transport for London (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Hiring manager and HR asking competency questions very similar to the telephone interview. Then goes on to technical interview which wasn't difficult. There is also a test called Fast Track which is tricky. Overall, it wasn't too bad but preparation regarding values and projects is very important if you want an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Competency: Why are you interested in TfL and why have you chosen this specific role? (Other questions on client focus, team work etc.) Technical: What factors affect the stability of an embankment and how do you mitigate these factors? Describe the process in building a bridge over a railway   Answer Question
