Interview Questions


"I had to give a presentation from a choice of three unknown topics. There was a situational judgement interview, a group exercise and a problem solving interview. I had questions about my long-term career goals, problem solving and leadership."
Marketing, Graduate, Brighton
"The situational judgement interview was around scenarios that could happen in the workplace and how you would go about handling them. The formal interview was based around questions such as why you had applied for this particular scheme and things such as 'give an example when...'."
Graduate, Peterborough
"Why do you want to work for ABF? Why do you want to work in procurement? There were lots of questions about me as a person."
Procurement, Graduate, Peterborough


"Why do you want to work in FMCG? Why sales? Can you demonstrate how you have been organised or when you have dealt with a difficult situation or colleague? How have you exceeded sales targets?"
Marketing, Entry level, London
"How would your friends describe you in three words? How would you rank yourself out of ten for competitiveness? Give us examples of times you have worked in and led a team."
"There was a case study with a presentation following it, two team exercises, a situational interview to see how you would react in scenarios and an interview to better understand your motivations, such as what you want out of the role and why you wanted to work for ABF."
Graduate, Stevenage
"Most interview questions are competency-based so be prepared to give examples for a time you demonstrated skills (leadership, teamwork, drive etc)."
Graduate, Home Counties
