    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Imperial Tobacco (Bristol, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview standard. Nice approach and didn't take long.
    Interview was relatively ok, competency based, had an exercise to complete, interview went slightly odd at the end...see question asked. Then invited for 2nd interview, but only one of the previous interviewers attended which didn't fill me with confidence.

    Graduate Global Finance Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Imperial Tobacco (Bristol, England (UK)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The first stage of the process was a telephone interview, which was a pretty standard competency (relaxed too). A few weeks later, I was invited to the assessment centre. This began at 9 and finished around 5, and, unlike the telephone interview, was quite tense. We were given 1 group case study, 1 individual case study (role play) and one hour long one-to-one interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Imperial Tobacco (Bristol, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    nice people and relaxed interview - I felt comfortable answering all questions and the line manager made sure the atmosphere was pleasant. It took two - three days to hear back, but the waiting time to start working was about 4 weeks and I felt that was too long.
