    I have been working at Network Rail full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting and growing sector. Well managed at HQ.
    There are lots of opportunities to move around the company.

    Cons

    Undergoing a transformation as new ways of working permeat from the centre, but is taking a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Take a firmer hand to the communcation of change - it isnt an option and thats its mandated.

    Graduate Civil Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Network Rail (Glasgow, Scotland) in December 2017.

    Interview

    After an initial application you will complete a series of online tests. If accepted, you will be invited to complete a video interview. The interview questions give you a scenario and ask you to explain how you would handle the situation and how yourself and others would feel about this. You are given prompts to help you form an answer. I am currently awaiting a reply and hopefully I make it to the next stage which is an Assessment Centre.
