    Graduate Engineer (DESG) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at UK Ministry of Defence (Bristol, England (UK)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I filled in an application form and it took them a while to get back to me. After a month or so I received an email saying I had made it through to the next round which was a scenario based telephone interview and that I would receive a brief the day before describing the situation and then I would have a half hour long role play style interview the next morning. The interview was relatively easy and everything asked was in the brief so it was really easy to prepare for.
