    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wincanton (Royal Tunbridge Wells, England) in October 2020.

    Interview

    A two stage interview. First stage with the H&S Manager and HR, Second with H&S Manager and the General site manager who the role reported into. They were friendly and made me feel at ease. The one let down was not being contacted about my outcome in the time frame given to me. In the end I had to chase it up for feedback. Admittedly, I didn't chase as early as you might as I had another job offer in the meantime which I took preference over. The feedback was constructive, mostly positive with a very reasonable explanation as to why I was not successful in my application, that being they needed someone with more experience in the sector who could "hit the ground running" as the previous member of staff had already left the organisation, so there was no chance for handover. However, I would have expected the feedback on time after a two stage, face to face interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Considering your role will be predominantly a typical 9-5, how will you build a positive stakeholder relationship with staff who work early and late shifts. In particular, the team of drivers.   Answer Question
