    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Manchester City Centre, England) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Very good interview process, easy and straight forward, just an online application and interview. The interview consists of 1 group exercise and then a 2 to 1 or 1 to 1 interview. Both went extremely well and questions are pretty generic in the sense they are to test your competancy, just answer truthfully and you should be fine.

    People who interviewed me were just very boring and they seemed like they hate their job. They weren't even happy when they were speaking about the projects they work on.
