Formal and in person. This was however many years ago so anything could have changed. Set questions but ok to answer. If you show an interest in the company that is always a good thing.

Interview

Originally amazing, ultimately abhorrent. After passing all stages and getting to the assessment centre I had an exceedingly positive opinion of The Thames Water Recruitment Team. The assessment centre proceeded as follow: *30 minute group exercise with 3 other candidates. After 15 minutes you are told further information and analysed to see how you react. *45 minute interview consisting of 8 competency based questions. I had this with the Head of Operations and Head of Civil Engineering. *30 minute presentation on a business case you were given two weeks before to prepare for. 15 minutes presenting, 15 minutes Q&A. However what followed grossly lacked integrity. First I did not hear back from Thames Water for two weeks, after being promised we would hear back within a week. After calling them they revealed I had not got the job, however said that they were so impressed that they wanted to offer me the subsequent job of Junior Process Engineer that I would have been placed into after the graduate program. They said I had a "next-level" performance in the process. After this I kept calling asking for more information where they proceeded to give me information little by little. After asking for feedback to see how I could improve they got the message. They called me up reaffirming their deep interest and said to wait further. The feedback they also gave signalled a company I would not like to work for, always positive and nothing negative, there is always something one can improve on! Furthermore if I was so great then why was nothing on the table, something didn't add up. Ultimately I withdrew my interest. It was such a disappointment as I left the assessment centre enthralled and excited at the opportunity of working with the employees had just met. They were overwhelmingly nice and interesting people, who truly showed an interest in me as I did them.

Interview

Very fast. Whole process took about three weeks. Great HR department and interviews were 3 in number. My biggest issue was the rigidity around the questions or perhaps I just had an off day.

Brief SNL style assessment followed by a video interview which is pretty standard. Can practice the interview beforehand using the partner website but cannot stop during the actual interview and only get one chance to answer.
