Interview: Tips & Advice


"Research the company. Understand the competencies the company are looking for and prepare your examples based on those."
Graduate, Medway
"The best way to prepare would be to do as much reading about the company as possible and to have an understanding of where they have come from to where they are today. But most importantly, the interview (group work and individual) is a chance to highlight the strengths you have to work on your own and as well as in a team without taking the stance of being too authoritative or democratic."
Entry level, Chelmsford
"The application process is an online form, online tests and an assessment centre. A tip for the online tests is not to panic. It's unlikely that you will finish all of the questions, but don't let this put you under pressure. Just work through them as quickly and accurately as possible. For the interview, prepare competency based answers so that you can give examples of where you have previously demonstrated skills Royal Mail are looking for. A final tip is to be yourself!"
HR, Graduate, Sheffield
"For graduate roles there is an online application, followed by some psychometric tests. If successful at these you'll be called to an assessment centre involving a group exercise as well as a case study and a competency based interview."
