Interview Questions


"I was asked for examples of when I had demonstrated the CARES values. There were also questions around my interests (specific to my chosen area), what I could bring to the society, why I chose to work here and what I wanted to get out of the graduate scheme."
Graduate, Coventry
"The questions they ask relate to the job you're applying for. The society wants to know how well your personal values fit in with the culture here, as well as any technical skills you may have."
Finance, Graduate, Coventry
"I was asked for examples of when I've demonstrated skills and competencies. Have I ever been in a situation where X happened? How did I approach this?"
Graduate, Coventry
"I had competency-based questions that focused on areas such as teamwork, communication and conflict. I was asked what my strengths and focus points were, why I wanted the role and what I could bring to it."
Graduate, Coventry
"Please tell us about a time when you have received excellent customer service. What attributes do you believe a successful HR leader has? Tell me about a time when you have supported a peer through a difficult situation, what did you do and how did they respond? What is the difference between a bank and a building society?"
HR, Graduate, Coventry
