    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Galliford Try (Shilton, West Midlands, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process was 3 stages, a telephone interview (15 mins) followed by a face to face interview at the Galliford Try offices with a recruitment partner (90 minutes). Then a face to face interview with 2 technical senior management from Galliford Try (90 minutes), including a short 20 question technical written test at the end.

    All stages were conducted in a relaxed conversational style rather than an interrogation. It took a little longer than expected to get a decision, and I had to chase for feedback, though overall It was a very positive experience.
