    Average Interview

    Interview

    Some micro-exercises, interview including a small individual presentation and team exercise. Interview is one to one and the micro-exercises is very time-intense, I think they are looking at the ability of working under time pressure, team exercise average difficulty where the team of three candidates are discussing a situation.

    Bus Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at FirstGroup (Bristol, England (UK)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Interview process mostly consisted of tests, on paper, about routes you'd take around the road (especially roundabouts and junctions) and road signs. There was also a driving test in a minibus, a health assessment with a doctor, and drug and alcohol tests (a swab and a breathalyser). At the end there was a face-to-face interview, which mostly seemed to involve the interviewer checking you were ok with the hours you'd be working. If you pass the first stage you'd start driving school for six weeks and become a bus driver if you pass a driving test at the end. If you quite within two years after passing, you have to pay the cost of the driving school.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you be ok working a three week rota of (1.) early in the morning (potentially from 3am), (2.) working late at night (until after 12am), and (3.) working rush hour split-shifts with an unpaid gap in the middle of the day?   2 Answers

    Trainee Bus Driver Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Basildon, South East England, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FirstGroup (Basildon, South East England, England (UK)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Received an invitation to an assessment about 2 weeks after applying. Started by doing a brief maths and literature test, simple questions like working out change and reading scenarios and picking best outcomes/solutions. Then went for interview which was quite 'laid back'. After that I had a driving assessment where they got me to drive... a Ford Fiesta!! Lol. When we got back I was asked to wait in canteen. 15mins later someone comes to tell me to apply for my D1 provisional licence and as soon as it comes to let them know. A week later they sent me for a medical where the Dr checked eyesight, bloodpressure etc (I also had to strip down to my pants).

    Although a good interview overall, I was asked if I want to be involved with other sectors. Friendly polite and explanatory but after being interviewed twice, the rejection was an automated e-mail. I would expect a phone call.
