    Interview process

    After completing my initial job application on graduate-jobs.com, I received an email confirming my place for an assessment centre; I did not personally have an interview. My assessment centre experience is described below. However, there was an interview for some candidates after the assessment centre.

    Most difficult question

    Both tasks are explained above, although I personally found the email task slightly more challenging since we were given no context, I didn't know how late the delivery was and what the order consisted of and so was unsure what tone and severity to write the email with. Also, not aware of duration of service from that specific company and therefore how loyal they should be.

    Perhaps the interview was probably more challenging, yet I wasn't called in for that and so cannot provide an insight.

    Interview tips

    Try and make a good impression with everything you say, be presentable. Everything you're tasked with is for a reason - they are assessing all your actions constantly. Especially the meet and greet at the start with the employees - be as smiley and friendly as you can, try and be remembered for all good reasons, ask questions, be smart. Do research beforehand, use these facts to impress them, unlike the other candidates would. Engage as much as possible, take the drinks you're offered! Try and input as much as you can during the group exercise, if others aren't, urge them by asking questions to prompt them - don't be cocky and take over - it's a team activity.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    Sat at a conference table with 8 other candidates. Greeted by HR Manager and Office Manager - day itinerary is summarised. 9 other existing employees enter room and we all get up and each speak with employees one-on-one simultaneously for a couple minutes each, going round the room. They then leave and we are tasked with a group exercise to plan the next quarterly social gathering for the whole department (location, event, transport etc.) - communication and collaboration with other team members is what matters most. One member summarises at the end for the whole room. Next task is to write out a list of 10-11 tasks in order of priority after being given the initial list of errands - told to think about questions you may have about these tasks and urgency of them (10 minutes to complete). Final task is to write out a fictional email draft to stationary company regarding a late delivery (10 mins). Then told that only 2-3 candidates will be chosen to remain for an interview, remaining candidates leave.
