    Assistant Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Atkins (Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England (UK)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    I was referred, so there was little "interview process" preceding the interview itself. The interview itself was relatively informal. I had two interviewers, both technical staff (no HR) who mostly quizzed me a fair amount on past work that I did, and occasionally threw in a "soft skills" question like "how did you manage disagreements in the team?".

    They were quite friendly, and the process was even enjoyable.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Atkins (Bristol, England (UK)) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Having completed a graduate scheme with a different company I interviewed at Atkins. I was asked to talk through my CV, fairly casual discussion about the work I enjoyed. Talked about why I thought Atkins would be a good fit and what I'd hope to get from working here. Very relaxed experience, with no technical questions (which I believe is unusual for Atkins...)
