Ask what to expect on the day so you can prepare yourself (if it's been arranged via an agency get them to ask on your behalf). Most first stages are either a telephone or face-to-face interview with the Hiring Manager or Recruitment Specialist, with a mix of questions about technical issues, our success factors and our values. Remember, we want to make sure we're right for you as well as you being right for Warburtons.
For us, experience is what shows whether or not a person can do a job, so interviewers will look for you to give examples of what YOUR responsibilities were in any situation you're describing. A good way of doing this is to use the STAR technique:
An example question might be: 'Give an example of when you've had to work to prioritise your workload'?. The interviewer may probe into your answer to get enough depth to the question:
S - Why did you have to prioritise?
T - What was your specific role in the task?
A - What did you do to make sure you met the deadline?
R - What was the end result?
Think of times you've been challenged or demonstrated a certain skill before your interview, to get an idea of what to use as examples to the questions.
Here are a few things to consider:
' Passion and motivation for the job you're being interviewed for and for Warburtons as a company
' Your career aspirations
' Your organisational and prioritising ability
' Your honesty and reliability
' Business awareness and company knowledge ' make sure you read our website!
' Make sure you read and understand the job description/advertisement. This is your opportunity to find out more about the role and the people you'd be working with, so write a list of questions in advance.
