    Interview

    I was referred by an employee to this interview. The interview questions are pretty typical. There were three interviewers. Two managers and one recorder. The interviewers are very friendly. But I turned off this job because of the conflict in timing with my school.

    Graduate Project Management Scheme Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at One Housing Group (London, England) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a CV and Cover letter upload on their website; then online psychometric tests followed by an group assessment day. Whole process took about a month after the deadline closed.

    Online psychometric test was a timed task- started with two touch typing tasks, then a mix of maths, english and visual patterns lasting about 50 minutes in total. Heard back the following week to attend assessment day at their HQ in London.

    The assessment day was from 11.30am- 4pm; there was only 4 candidates being interviewed and only one position in pre-construction management available. There was five tasks during the day and a short lunch where you could meet previous graduates and management.

    The first task was a group task to build the tallest possible structure out of provided materials (paper, sellotape, marshmallows, sticks etc.) to a budget. This was focusing on how you work in a team and solve a problem; each candidate had a member of management watching how they interacted so try and contribute during this and assist others, they are looking for team players not so much leaders!

    There was 1-1 interviews with management, very basic questions asked including why this company? why this scheme? biggest achievement? biggest disappointment? where do you want to be in 5 years? what can you tell us about yourself we can't get from your CV?

    There was two data analysis tasks we were rotated around- one was to analyse company reports and suggest improvements; the other was mock emails you had to prioritise the tasks and halfway through you were given more to re-prioristise- a mixture of tasks including calculating costs, analysing technical drawings for mistakes and customer complaints.

    There was also a negotiation task with a manager, who goes very method as a building contractor.. so be prepared.. to negotiate on behalf of the company an over-run build. The focus is on lowering the cost and keeping to an agreed time frame, so researching average build costs and schedules would help with this.

    Overall its an enjoyable process, management is really friendly and encouraging, making it a relaxed atmosphere. It is very competitive and being prepared with knowledge of the company is essential. This scheme is not a rotational one so you will only be working in the sector you applied for which is worth considering for future career progression.

    Project Worker Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at One Housing Group (London, England).

    Interview

    Sadly a waste of time - I spent time learning about the company and role on offer, however this was a waste of my time as it seemed clear from the interview that they had already found somebody for the role but just wanted to go through the motions to say that they had held interviews. The interview only lasted 20 minutes and I was asked only a total of 6 questions - only one of which touched upon my previous experience. I later heard that I had been unsuccessful in getting the job as another candidate had better experience - strange as I was only asked one question regarding my previous experience so they actually found out very little about it.
