    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mace Limited (London, England (UK)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    An online application which focuses on your personal details, knowledge of the company and your aspirations. Moreover, there are a few competency questions which in my opinion are the most important. Make sure you spend enough time editing it and proofreading it.

    Undergraduate Construction Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mace Limited (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    After completing the first part of the application - competency questions - I was invited for an interview at the headoffice in London. I had prepared for additional questions to the written questions, but once I got there, I felt like they were just repeating the previous competency questions. I tried to give different answers to what I had already written, but I realised the interviewers were totally unaware of my previous answers to those. It was a mess; I'm not a broken record. They also said I had a wide range of experience on my CV, I must admit as an undergraduate civil engineer it is tough to get a lot of exposure in the engineering world (I was a second yr student).

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mace Limited (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I had to complete an application form, and do Numerical and Verbal Reasoning Tests. Then I went to the final Interview.

    I thought the interview went very well, they were nice people- however, I had the feeling that they were interviewing me because to fill a quota, and that they were not really interested in me as a potential worker. I believe one has to look a certain way to work here.
