    Interview process

    The entire process was well communicated to all of the candidates from beginning to the end. I was very aware of where I stand, what was expected of me and details information about the company.

    The telephone interview was simply competency questions and very informal. Once you passed this stage, you had a day spent at your local branch shadowing the staff to see first hand what the role involved which was very interesting. You then had a one to one informal chat with the branch manager.

    Most difficult question

    The most difficult question was adapting yourself into the company's core values and explaining how as an individual you had some of these core values.

    Interview tips

    Be yourself, they want people who are genuine, leaders and team players. Being a leader is what the role involves but being a team player also plays a big role in the type of candidate they are looking for.

    At the assessment day, ensure to make yourself noticeable and be vocial enough and take part in all of the activities.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    A variety of different tasks both group and indivdual based all of which included what the role would involve day to day. This was slightly more difficult than expected but it was fun and very different from other companies as you are more engaged with everyone.

    Furthermore, an interview with the general managers with a variety of different competency based questions.

    Interview process

    After applying online, I shortly received a phone call (which turned out to be a phone interview) of which involved some questions about my background, what I know about enterprise, what I do and have done etc. The phone call ended with an invitation to a face-to-face interview.
    The face-to-face interview involved plenty of competency based questions. Additionally, this stage talked briefly a bit more about the specifics of the role. At the end of the interview, I was invited to attend a branch visit to the branch I had applied for.
    The branch visit involved meeting all the employees at the branch, and shadowing several employees for an hour or two before a interview with the branch manager at the end of the visit. This was the most informative stage of recruitment, as I was able to witness the specifics of the role I was applying for. After the branch visit had ended, I was informed a week later by phone call that I had been invited to attend an assessment centre.
    Upon attending the assessment centre, I met 11 other candidates, of which 2 were applying for the same branch as me, I was briefed about the structure of the day. The day started with a group discussion, of which each candidate had to persuade the group to pursue their initiative (of which the group had to consider the associated costs and then come to a collective decision). The second task was a day in the life of a manager, whereby candidates were given several pieces of information, and were asked to plan the morning based on said information. The third task involved role play; where candidates had to convince customers (acted by Area Managers) to both upgrade their vehicle and ask them to pay for damage to a vehicle (two different scenarios). After these tasks, candidates were provided with free lunch, and were then invited to ask any questions (essentially a Q & A session). This concluded the assessment centre.
    The next day I received a phone call from the area manager of the branch I had applied for offering me the position.

    Most difficult question

    The most difficult question I received was at the branch visit, of which the branch manager asked for a time where a customer had complained to my face about the service I personally had provided. This was the only question I failed to answer.
