    Incident Manager-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 2 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Thames Water (Reading, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I was interviewed online by two members staff, one who headed up this team (hiring manager) and another who was involved in the creation of the new ‘event management’ strategy.

    I had a two hour teams interview, which included three key stages. The first stage involved me presenting “what incident management meant to me”. The second stage had competency based questions and the third involved completing a meeting agenda for managing a crisis scenario- designed, I believe, for the candidate to demonstrate their experience of managing an operational incident.

    After completing the interview process, the hiring manager informed me that I would hear within a week. This was well over two months ago. Three chase emails have been sent to Thames’ HR and no answers given. In the end- I withdrew my application and accepted a job elsewhere. Disappointing that even a courtesy “no” wasn’t given- rather, they just re-advertised the role.

    Attended a video interview and never heard back from them!

    The interview itself was pleasant. First an Excel and Access test, followed by a face to face with the hiring manager and a promise to hear back by the following week

    Tests weren't too difficult and all video interview questions were competency based. As long as you do your research and use the STAR approach you should be pretty comfortable in sailing through the application process.

    Customer Service Agent-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Bewerber im Vorstellungsgespräch in Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)
    Kein Angebot
    Negative Erfahrung
    Schweres Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2020 bei Thames Water (Swindon, Wiltshire, South West England, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    I applied online for the role and was contacted within a week or inviting me to a telephone interview. I received a lot of help and guidance from HR who told me I would be absolutely fine in the interview and the answers I gave would be what they are looking for. I did lots of research and learnt about the values which you will need to know.

    They invited me to the assessment centre - the Swindon office.

    When I arrived the reception had no idea there were any interviews that evening.
    The interview was due to start at 5.15 but everyone seemed to be unsure of what they were doing - this was put down to 2 people dropping out, out of 9 who were invited.
    The first part was a welcome and presentation which lasted about 10 minutes. Then we were split in half with one group off to another room.
    My group had the group activity first where you are given the scenario of being stuck in a rainforest following a plane crash and can only take 7 items. Your made to discuss this with your group then present back.
    The second part was a written exercise where you are asked to write a reply to a customer who has had a bad experience.
    Then you swap over with the second group. You are given a scenario to read for 10 minutes then you have to answer the phone to one of the hiring managers who role play a customer.
    The last part was a 1:1 interview where you are asked competency questions based on their values.

    Overall I felt very prepared for the interview and HR were very supportive but the interview itself was quite extreme for the job itself, especially not coming from a telephone customer service background or working with a company such as Thames.

    HR got back to me within 2 days to say that I was unsuccessful and gave me feedback but I had enough points on my interview to be offered the position, so they were going to try and contest it but I still haven’t heard back a few weeks on which is disappointing.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 6 Tage. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im November 2019 bei Thames Water.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    3 stages

    Group interview
    Telephone test
    Face to face

    Only two others came

    There was a stranded in the jungle scenario after a plane crash, we had to answer which items we keep. We were advised to be confident but not too confident, don't overpower others and include the quiet ones.

    The telephone interview was a bit weird because the case study bill is only an estimate (which everyone knows before they even manage to attend the interview)so after it is established to be an estimate that is it really.

    Face to face was competency based.

    Absolute morons. Three months after a second interview and several phone calls to their OWN HR still nothing. Glad I took a job at a company who is much less of a shambles. AVOID

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    reasonable skill assessment competence based questions. Ridiculous employment screening for a utility company asking for my accountants details of previous employment. If I knew Security Clearance was required I would not have bothered. It's a gross misuse of position to introduce it after the interview. I question their legal right to demand this private data.

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 5 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2019 bei Thames Water (Reading, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    When I arrived I was shown to a meeting room where I did a case study for one hour. I was then moved to the adjacent meeting room where I had a one hour competency based interview. The hiring managers were conducting interviews back to back with one candidate doing a case study while another candidate was being interviewed. Given that the hiring managers have been interviewing candidates for the last five months they must have literally interviewed hundreds of candidates. This must beg the question do the hiring managers know what they are doing?
