Hey guyz,

I have got a telephone interview with thames water tomorrow and I have never been so nervous in my life before.Did any of you ever have an interview with thames water before?. If you did, then please tell me what kind of questions did they ask you. Interview is 30 minutes long so please help. Any help will be appreciated.
What should i say in the start of the interview? I am thinking.Instead of saying hello, i ll pick up the phone and say. Good afternoon. This is yazoo speaking. and then i was expecting your call. Thank you for taking out time to talk with me today. Guyz, help. I am dying here

Thanks.

hello yazoooo,

how was your interview ?

hi esso,
I think it went quite well. I was only expecting four or five questions from her but she asked me atleast 15 questions and some of them were quite tough but overall i think i did ok. I reckon i have 51 percent chance of going through because of fierce competition. They only have two garduate positions this year, so she was saying that they would only put 12 people through to the assessment centre so fingers crossed.

Any body else had a telephone interview with thames water?

Hi Guys,

I had a phone interview for cust services grad scheme on Monday and am still to find out if i have been successful or not! i thought Id share some of the qs they asked:

what do u know about Thames?
Why thames?
what do you know about the scheme?
work exp qs
leadership example
team work example
cust service example
and a few others…

It was quite tough as they do sort of drill your answers down to the finest details, but it was okay…

As for the numerical online test, I thought it was quite tough but I got through and I left the last 3 qs blank as I didnt have time to finish, so im guessing as long as you answer the ones you do correctly then you should be fine!

Hi RP

I have applied for finance one and going to attend assessment centre on 25 feb. They have told me that they are conducting one assessment centre only with 15 people mixture of customer service and finance on the same day and both will be mixed.

I am wondering when are they going to invite other people for assessment centre as they are still conducting telephone interviews and the assessment centre is for one whole day and needs lot of practice too bcoz of presentation need to create and send by 21st feb.

let me know whn they call u for assessment centre. As I want to ask you the powerpoint presentation they gave u to make is same as mine or different.

Hi DT,

The lady who interviewed me said that if I were successful that my assessment day would be held on 4th March and that they will let me know by friday if i will be invited. So not sure why they said they only holding one assessment day? But I will let u know if I get invited…the assessment day does seem hard!!

Good luck

RP
