My preparation for the phone interview was slightly wrong as I ad prepared alot on the company but I was only asked on the graduate scheme specifically.
I was asked 6 questions which I was told would be given a score.
Questions were along the lines of:
-Why did you chose to apply to a graduate scheme?
-Why did you decide to apply to Veolia specifically?
-Why are you successful? Draw upon past experiences
-Why do you think you will be successful on the graduate scheme?
-As a graduate on this scheme, who do you think your main competitors will be?
-What are you passionate about?
The interview lasted approximately 20 minutes.
Most difficult question
I was unable to answer the question about the customers I would experience on the scheme as I didn't know the job description and so wasn't sure of the things I would be doing with the scheme.
If I was to do it again, I would have gained more detailed information on the scheme to guarantee that I got through the phone interview. I would have maybe rang up the company and asked them questions on the scheme and the tasks I would be doing as the advertisement offered very little information.
