    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Anglian Water in May 2020.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with an HR representative and the line manager for the role in question. I can't praise them enough for their warm and welcoming approach, they put me at ease straight away and took some time to explain a bit about the company and the role to get the conversation going, then of course asked me some questions about my relevant work history. Everything they said was relevant to the job at hand and they went out of their way to make it a positive experience.

    Following this I did a maths and English assessment and then, based on the results of that, got invited to have an interview with the line manager and his manager above him.

    Once again they were very welcoming and approachable, they talked through some competence questions and a couple of technical questions that related to the role, taking the time to explore my answers (rather than just ticking a box) and allow me to ask questions as well. By the end of it I was very satisfied that they had a clear idea of what they wanted from the successful applicant and where they saw the business and role going in the future.

    I was offered the job on the condition of certain HR checks and I must say once again that HR were so helpful and friendly throughout this process, taking the time to keep me informed of progress and letting me know when everything was complete. A special thank you is due for giving me updates on Friday's where necessary so that I wouldn't be left wondering over the weekend. I also felt that HR handled my personal data very professionally whilst conducting their checks. My line manager was also giving regular updates to arrange my initial setup & first day induction and check that everything was okay and made me feel like part of the team from the outset.

    Anglian are very thorough in their recruitment process, but they do their utmost to make everything flow smoothly and make you feel valued and welcomed (and on that basis, I can't wait to get started).

    Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, England
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Anglian Water (Lincoln, England) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Competency based questions, based on points system. Very limited time given to answer questions and felt pressurised to come up with a response, rather than taking time to consider answer. It did feel a little like the interviewer was trying to catch you out and didn’t let you have time to expand on answer, cutting in. There was also limited opportunity to chat about achievements and what you could offer to the role. Totally focused on how well you answered the competency questions even though there wasn’t a right or wrong answer.
    I feel the Line Manager needs more training with their interview technique, or alternatively, an experienced HR professional should conduct the first interview instead.

    Interview

    Very formal interview, difficult questions. Questions were very scripted, so found that I was almost repeating myself at times as I had already answered the next question as part of the one before.
