Most difficult question
Other than the example already used in your application form, describe a time when you failed at something. What happened and why did you fail?
Experiences at the assessment centre
I then had a panel interview with three members of staff that lasted about an hour; and was then given 30 minutes to prepare a presentation on health warnings on alcoholic products.
I then had a 1-on-1 interview with the recruiting manager which was very informal and lasted about 45 minutes before spending 30 minutes delivering the presentation I prepared early.
The assessment centre lasted half a day. I was told that they would contact me within 14 days with a decision. I still hadn't heard anything after a month so called them and I was informed I was unsuccessful via email shortly after my telephone call ended. I later found out the position I applied for was filled internally. They also did not cover travel expenses.
