Third stage - Telephone interview, this was a CBI so have a bank of stories/experiences where you can show your 'leadership' 'team work' etc. skills
Fourth stage - personality questionnaire, you'll be asked to do this after you have been asked to attend the AS, scores will not stop you going to the AS!
Fourth stage - Assessment centre, first task is a group task/discussion, next a face to face interview (same sort of questions as the telephone interview) and lastly a whole group (entire AS) task.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capita (London, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Online assessments, 30 minute phone interview, further online tests, then assessment centre in the London office. Said they would reimburse expenses for travelling to London and when contacted with the expenses form and was just ignored. Very poor from such a big company.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capita in May 2016.

    Interview

    Online application with a few motivational questions, then a telephone interview. Focused on leadership and change. I've found this website really useful in preparing for interviews so I'll give as much detail as possible to help others now! The interviewer mutes the mic during your answer so don't let the silence on the other end put you off. I didn't get prompted for more info so if you feel like you need to add more, just keep on speaking as the interviewer will not interrupt. I would say this needs more prep than your standard competency-based interview as it largely focuses on leadership whereas other CB interviews would only need one example. The questions also have more than one part so try and keep that in mind when giving your example - I forgot to answer the follow up questions like "what was your thought process" etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Capita (London, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Online application and telephone interview. I didn't get through to the final round, but I believe it's an assessment centre. I got a very quick response after my initial application and was invited to telephone interview in 2 days. All the interview slots are for one hour, but the actual interview took 20 minutes tops. Unfortunately I failed it, but here are the questions I was asked. I hope it helps someone else! Make sure you do lots of company research.

    As a side note - the company seems a bit disorganised. They mixed up my phone slot and didn't notify me until I enquired about it. They are also very slow to reply to emails (if they do at all).
