    Assistant Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bristol, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Babcock International Group (Bristol, England) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Excellent interview with a friendly conversational style. Lasted about 2 hours and by the end of it I had learnt more about the company than they had learnt about me. I was interviewed by 2 heads of department and quizzed by the chief electronic engineer. I found the technical questions challenging but nothing my robotics course hadn't prepared me for. interestingly, a large portion of the interview was spent with me explaining what a robotics degree actually involves.
