Mechanical Engineering Graduate
Difficulty rating 60.0 / 100
Interview processIt was with two people, an enigneering manager and an HR representative. It started off with competency questions surrounding team work, communication skills, conflict resolution etc. It then went on to some technical questions in which i was given pictures and asked various questions this included what loads a bearing in a train wheel assembly underwent, and why train platforms that were curved could not easily be converted to have barriers between the platform and the train. I was then asked a questions about why ramps in train stations are important and why it was important for TFL to cater to disabilities.
Most difficult questionThe most difficult questions were the technical questions as they are difficult to prepare for and can be very specific. You have to use a lot of judgement and common sense and try not to panic.
Interview tipsKeep calm, do your research on the company and know what schemes and projects they are currently implementing. Keep in mind this is a public sector organisation and so political correctness, diversity, inclusion and knowledge of such is key. Be enthusiastic and know everything you can possibly know about the scheme you are applying for.
Experiences at the assessment centreIt was a long day with many tasks and a test, the people were friendly and always happy to help, I would say the highlight was meeting the current graduate trainees as it really gave an insight into what the scheme was like.
