Lol, bit confused there…so your interview is in customer service and not finance? Mine was in finance, had it on Monday and still no feedback on whether I passed it or not. Might phone tomorrow to see what’s going on…you from Glasgow?

Well if your interview is on customer service they are deffo gonna ask you all the usual customer service questions like tell us about a time you provided excellent customer service…theres only 2 competency questions ( well for me anyway) one was a time where I dealt with change and the other about a time I worked in a team. The rest were general questions such as going over my cv and my previous work history.

Let me know how it goes and how long they say you have to wait till you find out if your successful or not!

hey i applied for customer service but since i dont have a marketing degree they said they have to cancel my interview so i quickly said change me to accounting…so yea now i am going for finance .will they ask anything like why finance? or what challenges scottish power are facing…what do u mean by going through your cv? will they ask job after job? …btw i didnt find the people on the other that nice…like they sounded realllllyyyy boring (in comparsiion to other interviews i have had or talked to other recuriters)

whats with the dots? lol its not gonna make me reply any faster! haha.

What I mean by go through cv is that they asked my about my previous jobs and what my main duties were and for my previous job what I liked and disliked about it. They didn’t ask my why finance but they did ask me why me…and tell me abit about yourself…they didn’t ask anything about what challenges scottish power are facing but prepare something just in case…you never know…each interviewer is different.

Hi, just wondering if anyone has been through the assessment centre yet? I’m attending one on the 20th and was wondering what types of questions were asked after the presentation (were they all really specific to the initiative put forward?). I’m currently shifting through a few ideas for mine but i’m preparing for another AC this week at the same time, the timing wasn’t great. I’ve applied for the commercial scheme. Thanks

#12

i dont know if i got into assessement centre or not cos they emailed me saying no and yes at the same time…like they would have to wait to interview everyone first and get back to me…to tell you the truth they seem so disorganised hence not even bothered…good luck!
