    Finance Summer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Transport for London.

    Interview Details

    Stage 1 - Online application, Stage 2 -The Situational Strengths Test, Stage 3 - Online testing, Stage 4 - Telephone interview, Stage 5 - Assessment Centre

    Telephone interview questions were competency based as you have seen on different sources about the company's values, no difference, final one was a customer based one, if the train delays etc. It was the best and kindest interviewer I have ever talked to.

    However, face to face interview started with some competency based questions again, and some technical questions, interviewers were quite bad, I explain the situations, answer the questions, they say cannot understand or trying only to catch certain words in my answer to make sure that they note down them. I have used these examples many times, never got any problem like this. Furthermore, when I was asking some questions at the end of the interview to one of interviewers, the other guy was acting like he felt bored, wanted to finish it ASAP. Not motivating the candidate to think a bit more and describe better, but claiming and waiting for the answer. That was an attitude. That was a last part of the day, everyone was tired, in short, did not satisfy them and myself as well.
