    Junior Project Manager Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Hiscox (York, England) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I completed my application and within 2 weeks had a phone call to confirm I had passed the selection process and if I was still interested I would need to complete online competency tests. After completing these I then received another phone call to confirm I had passed these and I was invited to interview.

    The interview itself was around an hour long with a range of questions focusing on my background and experience as well as the sort of person I was and whether I would fit in to the Hiscox way of working. At the end of the interview I was told I would hear by the end of the week as to whether I had successfully got through to the next round of interviews, however the call I received 2 days later was to tell me I'd got the job!
