Thames Water Head Office Vastern Road Get Directions
I have been working at Thames Water as a contractor (More than 3 years)
Business processes are all very well defined.
The working environment is too noisy
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thames Water (Reading, England (UK)).
I was interviewed online by two members staff, one who headed up this team (hiring manager) and another who was involved in the creation of the new ‘event management’ strategy.
I had a two hour teams interview, which included three key stages. The first stage involved me presenting “what incident management meant to me”. The second stage had competency based questions and the third involved completing a meeting agenda for managing a crisis scenario- designed, I believe, for the candidate to demonstrate their experience of managing an operational incident.
After completing the interview process, the hiring manager informed me that I would hear within a week. This was well over two months ago. Three chase emails have been sent to Thames’ HR and no answers given. In the end- I withdrew my application and accepted a job elsewhere. Disappointing that even a courtesy “no” wasn’t given- rather, they just re-advertised the role.
