    very quick and to the point, the interview was quite casual and completed in succession with a tour. The interview was more about personality and quality characteristics as opposed to technical knowledge.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Severn Trent Water (Birmingham, England (UK)) in April 2014.

    Fairly relaxed and friendly but challenging interview. Started with introductions and a chat about the CV, then a chance to talk about myself a bit. Main part of the interview was about 5-6 general questions...'give an example of a time when you did... etc', followed by one or two technical questions pertaining to the job. Overall it lasted about an hour. Make sure your answers are detailed they want to know how you think.
