    I have been working at Arup part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great projects that challenge the intellect. The company tries to make a positive difference to society

    Cons

    The company leaders sometimes impose needless processes which don't sit well with the general autonomy people appreciate otherwise.

    Advice to Management

    keep things simple. Trust staff to do the right things if they are made aware of issues

    Apprentice Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Arup (Bristol, England) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After the initial filling out the application form and being successful with my CV, I had a phone interview with two senior managers who later invited me to attend a group interview which consisted of myself and 5 others. We were split into two groups and given a task to complete. Shortly after the group interview had finished (on my way home in fact) I received a phone call asking to come back in the following day for an individual interview. Shortly after I was told I got the position. I was made to feel at ease throughout the entire process as the interviewers (now my managers) were very friendly and approachable. I did not feel under enormous amounts of pressure at any point.

    Interview Questions

    • All the standard questions e.g. Tell us about yourself? How did you get into engineering? How did you find out about Arup? Cant remember much else.   1 Answer
