    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Associated British Foods.

    Interview

    After being selected for the interview I received an e-mail stating I had three days to complete the interview. The interview was around fifteen minutes and after each question was given, they gave me one minute to think of an answer to the question, this was very useful. There were five questions and they were mainly competency-based questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Associated British Foods in October 2019.

    Interview

    The first stage was to respond to written questions about one of their brands, your skills and why you wanted to join the graduate programme. The interview was recorded video, lots of support was provided before with practice questions which you could repeat as many times as you like. I called up afterwards and they took the time to look over my interview again and provided feedback on why I didn't get in which was really constructive! The feedback was things like... More evidence of how you worked within a team to achieve a goal (I had spoken a bit too much about myself!) and more detailed understanding of the product portfolio.
