    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Nissan (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Group Exercise Day
    The day began at 8am with two presentations about Nissan overall and then the engineering side of the company and the plant we would be working on.
    This was followed by three group exercises in groups of 5. Two required us to rank the importance of people in a situation and the third was a layout design.
    They were quite fun and I didn't feel too heavily scrutinised by those supervising us.

      Who would you save in the shipwreck?

    Placement 2016 Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nissan.

    Interview

    Applied with typical cover letter, resume and application online.
    Received email in regards to the assessment centre and a brief outline of hotel/travel expenses that they would pay.
    No preparation was needed for the assessment centre, it was all group based tasks. Approximately 8-12people split into 2 or 3 groups.. tasks where simple enough; your stuck on a ship label items 1-15 most needed first, 8 people or stuck in a cave choose what order to save them, a company is building a new store choose which area best fits the criteria... you are given time by yourself to do each task, and then time to confer with the rest of the group.
    They are not looking for the correct answers at this stage, they want to see the logic behind your choice, how you work in a team and if you can persuade/influence others.
    I would attend this with a few questions in regards to the role just to stand out.

    Stage after this was a presentation and interview.
    Very relaxed atmosphere, presentation is on a new topic of your choice and is only 5 minutes long. No questions where asked in regards to it. Followed by a typical interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nissan.

    Interview

    It felt really rushed. The person did not care what you are saying, will not give any pointers. Usual interview questions: Why do you want to work here, What do you know about us, talk about past work experiences, describe a time when you were criticised and what did you do etc.
