  1. Graduate R&D Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United Kingdom
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at BBC (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    The application form requested:
    - Written answers to 3 questions relating to R&D for a public service media company, creative and novel problem solving and STEM promotion/ outreach.
    - A copy of my CV
    - 4 multiple choice questions based on the BBC's published research found on their website.

    After applying at the end of April, I was offered to take part in a psychometric assessment. This ran by artic shores, and very similar to every other one I've done - the BART bubble game, some speed cognitive skills etc. Almost identical to those by the big 4, with the absence of the numerical and non numerical reasoning tests.

    On the application it said I'd hear back in may for interviews in June, however as the end of June approached I hadn't heard back, despite chasing to reaffirm still wanting the role.

    I heard back that I was unsuccessful towards the end of June, asked for feedback, however was told that they wouldn't be able to supply this.

    It's a shame as I thought I'd have been a good fit for the role. I assume there were a lot of applicants, and a reduced number of places available, but feedback would have been incredible useful.
    Interview

    We’d like to hear about any activities you have undertaken, where you have worked to promote science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) opportunities to other people and why you think these types of activities are important.
