So I just had the Ford finance scheme phone interview (I did terrible as they phoned me 30 mins before planned and I was caught completely off guard, BE AWARE!!!).
It was meant to involve questions based around on what it shows on their website, which are:
& always about their company (don’t be fooled just because if it doesn’t seem obvious)
Initial questions were:
Why do you want a career in the automotive industry?
Tell me about 2 recent developments in the automotive industry? (consequences of answering the 1st question with “the automotive industry is very innovative and always pursuing ideas that changes the world in terms of personal transport”)
Are you familiar with the ONE Ford idea?
Why do you want a role in the finance department?
What do you think you will be doing in the finance department?
Tell me about a time where you…
- had to persuade someone
- had to achieve a difficult result despite setbacks
- went above and beyond for a customer
Be very careful in what you say because they really drill in to your answer and ask questions based on your answers (both initial and competency)
