Assistant Graduate Process Engineer
Difficulty rating 100.0 / 100
Interview processThe initial telephone interview was conducted by a Recruiter which lasted approximately 20 minutes. He first asked me questions regarding my current status in my degree course and I was asked general questions relating to my engineering experiences in my degree course.
I was then asked a few basic competency questions and he was happy with my answers so forwarded my CV to the company. The company were also pleased so I was invited to an onsite interview; the interview was surprisingly really friendly and more towards being informal - nothing seriously difficult to catch you out. I was then given a tour of the site which lasted approximately 1hr30mins!!
The day after I got a call from the recruiter through which the company do all the correspondence saying I passed the interview; the next stage was a few questions which I have been email by the company, which I am complete correctly then the job would be secured.
Most difficult questionIt was just really simple and basic questions they asked so there was nothing difficult in all honesty. But just to choose 1, maybe 'Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?' is one which can maybe hit some people.
Interview tipsFor an interview at CPL Industries, the best advice I would give would be to just be yourself and not feel nervous about anything. They treat the interview more as a basic friendly chat and I feel are more interested in how you feel when you are at the site and if you look interested to actually work at CPL.
Also feel free to ask whatever questions you want, even as much as if you have slight problems with the start date - as although I haven't been offered the job yet (since I need to complete the questions I have been sent, and send them back), I made them aware of slight problems with the start date and they are really flexible in trying to adjust to what you say as they have done with myself - they were wishing for the role to begin in July and as I am not free until after mid-August they are more than happy for me to start then if I am offered the job subject to me answering the engineering questions I have been sent.
