Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Wolseley UK

Interview

Half an hour of random googled questions. At one point, Batman & Robin whipped out an iPad with a written question that they made me answer in writing while they looked on. It seemed like they were just going through the motions as they knew I had another job offer with the company and I later found out that they already had a candidate lined up for their role.

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Wolseley UK (Royal Leamington Spa, England) in Jun 2017

Interview

Straight forward, but waiting times in between each stage unnecessarily long. Took over 3 months to actually get an offer from application. Standard numerical/verbal tests, phone interview with HR (fairly comprehensive - some probing into answers, but the questions are fairly standard), assessment centre and then a final interview with the graduate manager. 15+ people observing the assessment centre which is way too many, makes it awkward for us. Current grads were on hand to help out with informal questions etc which was actually very insightful. Final interview more of a chat to see if you would fit in. Found out I passed 2 hours after the interview.
