    Interview process

    I have had an initial phone interview for the application process and am waiting to hear back from them as to whether I have got through to the assessment center.
    My preparation for the phone interview was slightly wrong as I ad prepared alot on the company but I was only asked on the graduate scheme specifically.
    I was asked 6 questions which I was told would be given a score.
    Questions were along the lines of:
    -Why did you chose to apply to a graduate scheme?
    -Why did you decide to apply to Veolia specifically?
    -Why are you successful? Draw upon past experiences
    -Why do you think you will be successful on the graduate scheme?
    -As a graduate on this scheme, who do you think your main competitors will be?
    -What are you passionate about?

    The interview lasted approximately 20 minutes.

    Most difficult question

    I struggled with questions related to the graduate scheme specifically because the description of the scheme which i applied for said very little on the role I would be doing. Therefore in order to answer the questions, I would have been required to do extra research into the graduate scheme so that I had alot of detail and information on it.
    I was unable to answer the question about the customers I would experience on the scheme as I didn't know the job description and so wasn't sure of the things I would be doing with the scheme.

    Interview tips

    The initial phone interview was very specifically related to the graduate scheme and nothing else.
    If I was to do it again, I would have gained more detailed information on the scheme to guarantee that I got through the phone interview. I would have maybe rang up the company and asked them questions on the scheme and the tasks I would be doing as the advertisement offered very little information.
