They first asked me to give an example where I contributed as part of a team and delivered results to a task. This was a straightforward question, although the time was very limited to answer.
The next question was very simple, and asked about the tools and resources I used to research the company, again very short time to answer.
The most challenging question was about my problem solving skills. "Describe a situation where I had to change my approach about completing a task due to a change in information." I felt appropriate time was given to think about the answer although it was hard to tell whether my answer was as crispy as they would like it to be.
In overall, the interview lasted about 25 minutes. The telephone interviewer was a third party recruitment agency which was a huge disappointment as there was no room to ask questions about the role.
Most difficult question
Verbal reasoning and numerical test were challenging enough so do recommend practising them. The process has numerous stages and does not allow your personality to come through as it is all done online.
