Graduate Structural Engineer Interview

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

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at WSP (London, England (UK)) in March 2016.

Interview

Online application (CV and cover letter), followed by online testing and video interview questions. The video interview consisted of recording answers, with no practice allowed for the final question. I then went for a interview at the London offices, consisting of a technical test and a fairly informal talk over my CV.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at WSP (Birmingham, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Started with online application which was standard, followed by a video interview with quite a few questions. Then got invited to interview centre. They put me up in a hotel for the night and sorted travel which was good. All the HR staff were really nice. The assessment centre was pretty chilled. A long introduction without assessment to begin, then a short group exercise before lunch. The afternoon was interviews and a technical task. The technical task was kind of architecture rather than engineering but pretty fun. The interviews were standard 'tell us about a time...'. Heard back within about a week.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WSP (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    I applied for Assistant Engineer (CVL) via a third party job site, and was sent an email asking me to apply via the company website. After applying via the company website I was invited for an interview about 1 week later. When I arrived at the interview I met with the Hiring Manager of the Buildings department, as my postgraduate degree was in Structural Engineering.

    The interview was straightforward, we discussed my past experience, education and skills and also discussed my career plan in detail. I was asked to write a short test (30 min) which was aimed at Graduate level and was quite easy.

    The Hiring Manager was open and honest, and discussed some issues within the department (such as living up to the company's name on an international level and quality), and what can be done to improve.
