I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Taylor Wimpey (Bristol, England) in April 2017.
The Taylor Wimpey Interview and Hiring Process has been informative and innovative from the start. Initially I sent away my CV with a Covering letter, my application was then progressed on to the next stage; this involved preparing a video of myself answering questions about "what makes you a good candidate/what makes you different". This video had to be contained to two minutes and could be as creative as you wanted as long as it responded to the questions. Following on from this stage a telephone interview was scheduled; this lasted for 30 minutes, this allowed the interviewer the chance to talk to me about my experiences and situations I have found myself in as well as offering me a chance to find out more information about the company. At the conclusion of this phone interview I was informed I would be progressed on to the next stage of the process which involved a variety of on line tests.
I successfully navigated these tests to progress me to the next stage of an assessment centre, something I hadn’t participated in before. Although seemingly a daunting experience it allowed me the opportunity to converse with fellow candidates as well as a variety of Taylor Wimpey personnel. My assessment centre slot lasted for the duration of the afternoon and began with a variety of informative presentations including a presentation from a successful graduate last year. The day was then broken down into an individual exercise based on an information pack and presenting back your findings in a 50 minutes period advising a theoretical client based on your findings. The second section was based on a team based exercise to see how you interact within a group environment. A very well constructed and an enjoyable experience that removed the pressure of the environment you were in.
Finally, after being notified of my success at this stage the last stage was a final interview, this involved a face to face interview as well as preparing a presentation, the content of the presentation had to responded to a question set by Taylor Wimpey (A couple of options to choose) and had to be no more than 15 minutes long. The interview itself went on for around an hour and I was informed of their decision to offer me the role within half an hour of leaving the interview.
All in all the whole process was very enjoyable, it took around three/four months from my initial application to being offered the role, I now wait in anticipation of my start date on September 4th 2017.
