    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RWE npower (Leeds, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    At the interview received a brief to produce a 10 minute presentation on business change impacts. 30 minute preparation using flip chart and pens. Presented to a 2 member panel followed by questions for 20 minutes. Brief lacked detail but did allow you to get across key messages rather than focussing on process. Panel sought additional information following the presentation and then reviewed CV. Questions were fair and panel members were open and friendly.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RWE npower (Leeds, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was fairly standard. The panel was made up of two people. One of the women who interviewed me was somewhat helpful in making me feel at ease. But the other one was not. When I was answering the competency questions, she challenged me at one point by pointing out that my answers were not matching my experiences on my CV. I politely answered that my experiences were varied, and that there was no way I could have condensed all my experiences in my CV. I seriously wanted to tell her that the questions didn't specifically ask me to narrow my answers to experiences on CV as the questions were: Tell me a time when...
    She just made me feel unease from then on.

    Project Manager/Business Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at RWE npower (Solihull, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online; received an invite for half-an-hour telephone interview with the recruiting managers; after the successful telephone interview, was invited for a 2 hour face-to-face interview. The f2f interview had about 45mins dedicated to a case scenario presentation followed by generic questions and then competency questions. The interviewers didn't seem to be interested in my answers as I noticed them looking around or lost in their own thoughts. The questions themselves were confusing and weren't in your normal competency format where one could apply the STAR method - something that was advertised beforehand. The moment I left the building, I knew it was a wastage of time.
