    Have you got any response? It took them about 2-3 weeks to get back to me with a test then about a week with a telephone interview.

    Mine was good, took them a week to get back saying I'd passed it. Good luck! What area did you apply for?

    Best bet is to ring them up to ask...I think thier HR contact number is either in the email they sent you or on your account page.

    Hi, what did you apply for division wise?
    Make sure you research the business and things that affect the business. Look at the competencies and really understand them. Next sound clear and confident, don't over speak but don't use less than a sentence to answer a question. If you can separate it out into maybe 3 sentences that's long enough for an answer.
    Stay calm and be you. They know when you fake it or script it out so just be natural with it.

    On the website it says so, but they told me otherwise.

    I would! You applied for the 3 day spring programme right? And definitely not the industrial placement/summer internship? I haven't heard of anyone else getting this email.
