    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Triumph Motorcycles (Hinckley, England) in May 2015.

    Interview

    An on-line application with your CV and cover letter is the first stage of the process followed by psychometric tests should you get through.
    Two interviews are conducted for the role of Design Engineer. The first interview is with a Team Leader and project engineer.
    The first part is your typical background interview stage, with questions like why did you choose engineering. This is followed by why the motorcycle industry an why Triumph.
    The second part takes you through a scenario of how a component goes from concept to production and then on to what happens if the component fails in the market.
    For the final part of the interview a component is given to you and questions about what it is, it's functionality, the reasons behind why it is designed like that and how it is manufactured are asked.
    The second interview is much more relaxed and is much more personal conducted by the same Team Leader as before as well as the Chief engineer for either Power-train or Chassis. Dependant.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Triumph Motorcycles (Hinckley, England) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the job and then about 3 weeks after i got an email saying i had been accepted as an applicant and that they would like me to complete some online tests. The test consisted of a personality test, a mechanical comprehension test, a verbal reasoning test and a numerical reasoning test. After a week they got back to me and said that i had been accepted to an interview at their base in Hinckley. The interview was very much just to get to know me, they used the personality test I completed to see if it was accurate and asked me questions about the answers I gave. Other than that it was typical 'why do you want to work for Triumph?' and 'Where do you want to be in 10 years?'.
