    Hi Guys,

    I have been invited to an assessment centre with Wincanton, I am just wondering if anyone else has been to one and what I should expect.

    Not been able to find anything on their recruitment process.

    Thanks

    Hey guys, I have been accepted to the assessment centre stage aswell, I believe they might send us to distribution centres, however their website says that they will organize it in Chippenham which is there head office...(I think).. It should be fun whatever lol, i think they will make us do a presentation or some sort of team work exercise, also there could be an interview in there too... regarding the telephone interview as anasaslam said just be yourself, they sound like they want genuine, hard working people so sell yourself and you will be fine .. hope to see some of you at the assessment stage whenever that is lol

    hey anasaslam, you will receive the letter soon i think, the OPQ is a questionnaire which you have to complete before the assessment, its 104 questions and it takes about 50 minutes lol, you cannot pass/fail it so dont worry

    hey, my assessment went OK i think, we had to do a 1 on 2 interview, which was on competency questions, we then had to do a 10 minute presentation on a case study and then we had to do a group presentation

    For me, the case study was about a german company wanting to invest in the uk to expand their market area, and they were targeting your company which was located in milton keynes, but a possible expansion was possible in doncaster, it then gives you loads of facts and figures to digest etc. yes the face to face interview is 50mins - one hour, but it goes really fast believe me, they ask you 10 compentency questions, I couldnt tell you them because i have forgotten, but it was a wide range believe you me!! I received a letter off them today telling me i didnt get the job, pretty **** really. I think i was the best there, all the other graduates werent as educational intelligent as me, but it doesnt matter, Wincanton have lost a great graduate in me btw good luck mate!
