Below are some of the main questions asked at our Interview Process day by employers. Please try and give your honest answer rather than what you think the interviewer wants to hear. Remember your body language and tone of voice when you answer questions is more important than having great answers alone. People buy people first, so remember to sell yourself as a personality, not just what you can do in the job.
When is the earliest you can start?
Do you have any holidays currently booked?
Where do you live and how will you commute to work?
Do you know anyone in our industry?
Describe how you think our work environment is?
