    Interview process

    First there was an interview with the Coding and Tenders Manager and the Corporate Procurement Controller. It was a fairly intense interview involving lots of competency questions, which lasted for about 45 minutes.
    Then I was invited back for a second interview which began with three tests.
    This interview was with the original panel of two, plus another member of the department. More competency questions were asked, and a lot of general ones to see how good a fit I would be for the department on a social level. Altogether I was in the final stage interview including the tests for nearly 2 hours.

    On a scale of 'intense to laid back', where would you put yourself?

    Interview tips

    Research the company fully. Not just the organisation you are applying for but the parent company as well.

    Make sure you know yourself well, have lots of examples for competency question answers, and be ready to spin any challenges on potential weaknesses into positive attributes.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    The calculation and 'checking' (matching codes) tests were the only non-interview assessments, performed at the 3663 site. There was a basic mathematics test under a strict time constraint (17 seconds per question down to 14 seconds as it progressed if I recall correctly). Secondly, a test designed to specifically test the speed at which you recognise codes- you had from 7 down to 4 seconds to recognise and match each one from a list. And finally an Excel test, including general formatting of cells, SUM, and IF functions.
