    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ford Motor Company (Rainham, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Standard online application, followed by telephone interview which went over my CV and asked questions relating to prior experience. Soon invited to the assessment centre which included a 1:1 interview, group exercise, individual role play exercise and a written exercise. They made you feel really comfortable throughout and very accommodating but ultimately i was ill-prepared and unmotivated.
