    Interview process

    A group of about 10 of us, were taken into a room where one of the employees showed us a presentation about the company. After that was done, we were left to network with other employees of the company as well as the other interviewees. Then individually, we were taken away to do a one-to-one interview. That was the end of the first stage.

    I got a call back the next day to say I had been selected for the second stage, which consisted meeting with the operations director/director of managed properties and another senior manager.

    Second interview was much less informal in comparison to the first stage. Typical interview questions and a lot on wanting to know more about my career aspirations and personal goals.

    Interview process

    Why you chose to study the modules you did at university?
    What do you do in your spare time?
    About my pervious work on my CV?
    Why I want to work in property?
    Why did I apply for this job?

    First was a phone interview, once though to that we were invited to the head office where we were greeted and watched a presentation about the company, the perks and jobs available. We were then asked to 'mingle' with the directors and other interviewees whilst people were in one on one interviews. The one on one interview lasted about 20 minutes, formal/casual! We were then asked to return to the room after the one on one interview. All together lasted about 2/3 hours, dress code very smart!

    You find out the next day whether you got the job or not! Which is great! No waiting around for weeks!

    Most difficult question

    About my pervious work on my CV? - Being a graduate, I did not have much - but luckily I have worked within the property industry before, therefore held well.

    Interview tips

    Dress code very smart!

    Be yourself! Make sure you are passionate and communicate clearly.

    Be prepared to ask you about what you think the role contains! Read the current workers thoughts on the jobs on the Foxtons website!! Prepares you for what to expect in the office.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    All the interviewees were put in a room with 6 senior management/ directors and asked to 'mingle'. They were basically assessing our personalities and communication skills, which I thought was done in a very good way as interviewees felt conformable. In addition a one on one interview, it was very quick - but once again management made employees feel very comfortable and relaxed.
