    Engineering Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Crawley, Hampshire, South East England, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thales (Crawley, Hampshire, South East England, England) in March 2020.

    Interview

    1) Online Application form
    2) Online game-based assessment (Skyrise mobile app)
    3) Telephone interview (was very brief, the call itself lasted around 10 minutes)
    4) A day long assessment centre (my assessment was based in Crawley, UK)

    Interview Questions

    • Telephone interview:
      -Why did you apply to Thales
      -What do you know about Thales
      -Why are you a good fit for the graduate role

      The assessment consisted in 3 exercises: Technical interview and two group tasks. The group tasks were similar to other assessment I attended with nothing particularly relevant
      the most tough questions in the technical interview were:
      - Do you use engineering methods in day to day life?
      - Imagine you are travelling at 40mph, how would you detect mines?   Answer Question

  • The inaugural Thales Tech Challenge has finally come to its conclusion. We have had 2000 students register from 200 different universities, with 105 different nationalities represented! 380 teams were formed at the beginning, and through a lot of hard work and with the support of 60 Thales mentors, we conclude today with only 9 teams left. 9 country winners (add in the country flags) made it to our Global final, but only 4 have won the awards? Check out our latest article to find out the winners of the Thales Tech Challenge 2020!

  • This past week was International Women in Engineering Day 2020 so we asked our female engineers from across the globe to tell us what obstacles they have had to overcome to get to where they are today, what advice they would give to young girls looking to get into engineering and what they are doing to help #ShapeTheWorld
