    Marketing and Sales Management Graduate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FirstGroup (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process like many graduate programmes includes: application, online test, video interview and assessment centre. I found the assessment was fun, enjoyable and the company seemed great. My advice is to relax and be yourself.

    However I am disappointed that I have yet to receive feedback from FirstGroup regarding my assessment centre, 6 weeks ago, perhaps its a blessing I didn't get an offer as say a lot about a company!

    Graduate Rail Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FirstGroup (Birmingham, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After the initial online application, you are required to complete online tests. One of the easiest I have completed out of any graduate application. Next you have to do a video interview before you are invited to attend the assessment centre. The assessment centre started the evening before - FirstGroup pay for your dinner and stay as well as giving you drink vouchers so you can socialise with staff and ask any questions you wish. The next morning is the start of the assessment centre which involves group tasks, individual tasks as well as an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FirstGroup in June 2015.

    Interview

    Apply online via company website. Wait for a reply and follow the instructions sent by them. You should do a bit of background searching reguarding the position your applying for and anything else that you my think of doing for the Position. During your telephone interview you may need a glass of water at hand just in case. Answer the questions truthfully and always listen very carefully. You will be asked a final question and this is the one that sells yourself. Good luck.

    interview did not go well. One of the company representatives fell asleep when I was answering his questions which made the interview very difficult to do. The lack of respect for an interviewee made it extremely difficult for me to care about the company or the role.
