    I have been working at BSI Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Continual Improvement is at the heart of this business, they invest in people, offer amazing development and the culture for those that chose to embrace it is commercial, fast paced and inclusive. If you want to succeed and develop your career BSI will give you the opportunity. You can really add value, get involved and be recognised. Its a great place to be.

    Cons

    If anything we try to do too much, sometimes we just need to focus on the few rather than over commit.

    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BSI Group.

    Interview

    Approached by an engineering recruitment agency regarding the position. They forwarded my CV to BSi. I heard nothing for a month. I was then invited to interview at an assessment day.
    There were several elements to the process. I was there nearly 5 hours in the end.
    There was a presentation, a traditional interview, a competency interview, an observed team exercise, a practical test and an electrical test.
    The process was fairly intense but went well. There was a lunch buffet provided at the end which was a nice touch. There were managers, test managers, engineers and several HR people present and interviewing. The interviewers outnumbered the interviewees about 3 or 4 to one
    Originally there were meant to be a dozen or so people attending this assessment/interview morning but only a fraction turned up for some strange reason! Maybe they knew something about the job/company we didn't and changed their minds or there was a big breakdown in communication?!

    I was offered the position within 24 hours.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    This was minimal and limited. I recommend negotiating hard and be prepared to walk away if not 100% happy. It is unlikely you will get a pay rise some some time. There is no annual inflation rise, only an achievement rise for some.
