    We watched a company presentation, then partook in a group exercise where they watched how we worked in the group. We were then taken for individual interviews, which last about 30 minutes. It was a very organised process, and the staff were very pleasant.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jacobs (Croydon, England (UK)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    My interview was at the Croydon office for Graduate Highways Engineer. The office has a friendly and welcoming environment.

    The interview consisted of 6 competency-based questions ("Tell me about a time when you ___") and a Highway technical question.

    I would highly recommend revising all the questions presented on Glassdoor as that enabled me to be more prepared for some of the questions asked. Also do some research on the company, remember your experiences thoroughly and prepare questions to ask at the start and end of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you were asked to change your plan/ method mid-project. How did you react?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Jacobs (Winnersh, England (UK)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    People who interviewed me were just very boring and they seemed like they hate their job. They weren't even happy when they were speaking about the projects they work on.
    I was asked some questions related to my skills as well as I was given questions to be solved on board and on paper.
