    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Électricité de France (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    It was a telephone interview that lasted for 30 minutes. The questions were competency-based. The interviewer initially made small talks to ease any nerves unfortunately that didn't help as it was my 1st ever interview. I was given the platform to change any answer(s) at the end of the interview but I passed off the offer. I got a rejection email 10 mins after.

    Interview

    Interview was with hiring manager and senior HR manager and was relatively relaxed. Hiring manager provided some upfront details about the company and then proceeded to questions based partly on my CV experience and partly on my personal attributes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Électricité de France (Gloucester, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Brief telephone interview by HR before being called for formal interview. Formal interview with 3x interviewers. Was given notice to prepare a ten minute presentation on a topic given by them relevant to the job. Was told by HR that I would receive verbal feedback-was told again at interview that all candidates would receive verbal feedback. Was told that although they were supposed to say I would hear from them within 3-5 days, HR were always useless and never delivered so the interviewing team said allow two weeks and we will over deliver. 4 weeks and an ignored email requesting feedback later, I received a generic email saying that I had not been successful and If I wanted individual feedback that I should respond to the email. I have, It's now 5.5 weeks post interview and I have still heard nothing.........
