    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carillion (Roanoke, VA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and I also sent a detailed, well prepared resume with cover letter to HR and also followed up with a phone call to only hear that they never received either. After reading the reviews on GD, I'm glad the interview never occurred.

    Assistant Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Carillion (Birmingham, England) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed through a campus recruitment process which made it possible to reach a large number of employers easily. I firstly had to submit an application form which was reviewed by the company. Interviews were then arranged based on which companies were interested in you. The company then came to my campus and I had a 30 minute interview with two employees. The interview was more of a conversation rather than interrogation with no competency based questions. The questions were more trying to gauge what your personality is like and if you would fit into the workplace well. I received an offer the next day by via a telephone call.

    Interview

    Basic what to expect during the hiring process: Prepare and articulate your goals, and remain honest here. Inconsistent answers won’t get you the respect and credibility that is a must to impress an interviewer

    Maintenance Technician Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carillion (London, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Completed online application, then got a phone call a week later for interview.

    Two stage interview process for one position. 3 invited for stage two.

    Got another phone call for 2nd interview.

    One of the interviewers answer their phone a few times during the interview. Which was quite rude. Never mentioned at the beginning of the interview that they may have to take a call during the interview. I found it unprofessional and question if it was a test.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Carillion.

    Interview

    Very long process. Once I had filled out the application form and passed into the next stage, I was contacted for a telephone interview. The interviewer was lovely and very easy to talk to. Following that had an assessment day. Had to do a group task, interview and individual presentation. After that.....nothing. I chased them up for over 2 months and eventually found out that I'd passed the assessment center but they didn't have any vacancies in the department I wanted. But they said something had come up and booked me in for another interview (3 months after the assessment center). Took another job offer in the meantime.

    Although it was slow and a really inefficient process, everyone I met and spoke to was extremely friendly
