    Finance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Luton, South West England, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Whitbread (Luton, South West England, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The first stage consisted of submitting your CV and completing a short situational judgement test.

    I then got invited for a short, informal telephone interview, questions were straightforward (why finance/internship? Why Whitbread), but was already given the impression at this point that I had made it through to the assessment centre -I don't think many people had applied.

    They had invited four candidates to my assessment day, and four to a second one. They were hiring four interns, so your chances are quite good. The night before they put us in a Premier Inn hotel and there was a dinner with some members of the recruitment team. It was very informal and quite relaxed.

    The assessment centre itself consisted of one individual interview, a group assignment and two individual assignments. The individual interview was relatively easy, the individual assignments are quite difficult.

    I got a call one week later telling me they were not offering me an internship. I was promised feedback, but never received anything.

    Applied for position advertised on Whitbreed Careers website. They called me the next day and the interview was arranged for a few days after. Interview was informative, first they spoke a lot about the company and explained the role in detail. This was followed by a combination of thorough discussion of my CV and standard interview questions (including weakness and strength, where do you see yourself in 5 years time, etc). Took about an hour in total.

    Information Systems Management Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dunstable, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Whitbread (Dunstable, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Initial telephone conversation with the recruitment team, followed by an hour long Skype interview. Extremely friendly people who interview you at this stage and feels more like a long chat. Was asked about my background and interests, alongside my knowledge of technology in a general sense.

    I was then invited to an assessment center, the only one they were running for this one position. Chatted with a few senior staff and a couple of the new graduates, all very friendly people who enjoyed working there. The day for me first involved a 2 - 1 interview, highly competency based. They really drilled into my psyche wanting to know what deep down motivates me etc. Then was a case study that we had 20 minutes to prepare in the morning, and then take part in a mock meeting to talk through your findings and recommendations. Lastly was a group exercise involving a lego model we had to recreate that only one person could view.

    Overall a very positive experience!
