    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Water (Durrington, England (UK)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Really useful, lots of great activities really pushed the boundaries and got the most out of everyone who attended. The face to face interview however was by a really blunt Scottish lady who was very scary and not a friendly person I think she did not fit the face of the company I applied for when going through the assessment centre.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Southern Water (Durrington, England (UK)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A task based on selling chocolate bars through an assessment centre. The 1:1 interview was uncomfortable. Maybe some training is required for the 2 women who clearly were not interested in me. I got the feeling they were just going through the motions for the sake of it. One was very rude and the other just following the rude ones lead. Needless to say i rejected the job offer!

    Competency based interview with about 6 questions. Interview was ok but questions seemed to go off track and not always to do with the job I was applying for. Interviewer was good at drawing out my skills and was able to answer all my questions back about the role.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Southern Water (Durrington, England (UK)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Apply with CV and personal statement to a third part recruitment agency (when I applied the agency was Pertemps but now I think it is Matchtech). The recruitment agency then invites you for an interview and asks a few basic questions such as what do you know about the comany, please provide an example of teamwork / customer service etc.
