    Graduate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amey.

    Interview

    Very relaxed, perhaps too much so. I was impressed by Amey, however it turned out they were looking for civil engineers and not engineers with my degree so I was abit confused as to why I had made it this far in the process. Overall a good experience, only waited about 4 weeks between applying and getting an interview with tests in between. Tests were easier than average.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amey.

    Interview

    3 exercises, individual technical exercise, group exercise and individual interview.

    The interview itself works really well, definitely more of a conversation as there are two interviewers and they are extremely friendly, showing a genuine interest in your answers and will definitely ask further questions so do not lie because this will be unpicked by them easily. Also research what area you want to research into, have lots of competency examples.

    Group exercise was building a structure, the usual they want to see how you work as a team.

    Individual written technical exercise was difficult; it’s essential you go through the information Amey will send you first and do your own research into the area, basically know enough to write a short essay about the topic, with good spelling and grammar.

    Really research the company and make sure you have good questions to ask at the end of the interview.

    They said it usually takes 2 weeks to hear back but I was called 3 hours after the interview for a self assessment, feedback and job offer.

    Commercial Graduate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Amey (Nuneaton, England) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the role online and was asked to complete the online tests. I then had to complete a video interview which asked what I knew about the company, why I wanted to work there, what inspires me etc. I actually didn’t think I came across that strong as I think I was nervous and bumbled along a bit! I was however invited to an assessment centre which I really enjoyed. It was an afternoon and there was 5 of us present. The afternoon consisted of a interview, group exercise and written test.
    The interview was good, they were friendly and made me feel relaxed. It was quite formal and they asked your standard competency questions. We then split into 2 teams to participate in the group exercise. I enjoyed the group work and we completed the task successfully which I was pleased about.
    The written test was quite difficult and I don’t think I answered the questions well but when they called to offer me the job they said I had excelled in the written assessment.
    Overall it was a good experience and well organised.

    Senior Strategy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Amey (London, England).

    Interview

    Phone call then in-person interview with manager and HR rep. Interview was very scripted with all the basic questions thrown at you (tell me about a time you had a conflict, etc...). All in all pretty smooth however one month after my interview I still haven't heard of them. No sweat that I wasn't invited for second round, but at least sending an email letting me know that would be great. This lack of basic decency for interviewees is stunning, especially when you have to take time off work to go visit them.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Amey (London, England).

    Interview

    I was very impressed by the interview process (and atmosphere) I experienced at Amey Consulting, London.

    The first stage was a phone interview reviewing previous experience with a small market sizing.
    Second stage was a 3 hour case study in the office before a one hour interview over lunch. Both the case and lunch interview were interesting and enjoyable.

    Graduate Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sheffield, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Amey (Sheffield, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Got a phone call from HR and was given 4 days to complete online tests and video interviews. Was then invited for an assessment centre in Sheffield scheduled 2 weeks from the email. Due to this time the train ticket set me back £85 which Amey did not reimburse and so has left me out of pocket. When I arrived there were 6 of us and the day consisted of a written exercise, group exercise and a competency interview.

    The written exercise was around the question of the impacts of building and maintaining new and existing infrastructure and how Amey can overcome these problems, or something along those lines.

    The group exercise was being split into groups of 3 and building the tallest, free standing structure out of paper, string and spaghetti so that it could support a marshmallow. There were 5 assessors and 6 participants, so 2 people weren't being assessed properly, or 1 not at all.

    Then was a competency interview with standard competency questions. It was clear one of the interviewers had not even read my CV before hand so that seemed rather unprofessional.
