BAE Systems 2020 Graduate SchemeWatch
I applied for the environmental engineering scheme. I passed the tests two weeks ago, didn't get asked to do a video interview just told that my application is under review?
has anyone had an update for the graduate scheme? my interview for Commercial got cancelled at the start of the lockdown. Ive been emailing every 2 weeks/ month or so. They are just sending the same automated response from 3 months ago! They said they would be in touch in the first email within a few days (which never happened) to sort out alternative arrangements and this still hasnt happened
in my case, i passed the online video interview stage and was awaiting the face-to-face interview since march, this is the reply i get after following up:
"At the moment we are still continuing with early careers recruitment for 2020/21 starts. We are however responding to the changing nature of the Covid-19 outbreak and we are having to make certain changes in the process as this develops such we are looking to utilise more technology as we are able.
We will be in contact with individual arrangements as these are confirmed, unfortunately we do not have any timescales at the moment."
I had my final interview back in March! Has anyone heard back after having their interview ?
that is word for word what I got sent ! I had a date for two days before lockdown but then it got cancelled. So no work minus the automated response since then. They are still taking on graduates this year as it says on the website & also know a few people at BAE so this has been confirmed. They said they would be doing Skype interviews online on their website but I have no clue what’s going on now! Did you apply for commercial also?
as for questions, i've only done the hirevue video interview for the graduate scheme and i was asked 5 questions. from what i can recall, they were along the lines of:
1. Tell me about a time where you had to resolve a team disagreement problem.
2. How did you find out about our company and what does BAE systems do?
3. Tell me about a time where you had to lead a team.
4. How do you keep up to date with current news.
5. What do you enjoy to do in your spare time?
