I got through to the first interview stage in March. This was for Graduate Software Engineer position at BAE Warton. I did an online HireView interview where i had to answer 5 questions (not face to face) and it gave me 3 attempts to answer each question. I thought i hadn’t done very well, then in May i got a phone call from a lady from BAE recruitment department. She told me i scored 95% and invited me to a second stage HireView interview with 2 lead software engineers. I did this last week. I think it went well although i struggled with a couple of questions. I'm keeping my figures crossed and was told I would have to wait 2 weeks (at least) for a reply. I'm hoping for the best. The only thing i am worried about is that i was told i need a valid passport for ID purposes and my current one has expired and it's currently a 10 week wait for passport renewal!

Just basic ones like "Tell me about a time when you .. blah blah".
I think one of them was about a time i had to deal with a difficult or dissatified client, but I guess they ask different ones in each interview.
There was also one "if you could change something, what would it be and how would you go about changing it?"

This is for software tho, i guess it is different for all other departments. As long as you stick to the STAR method when explaining your answers, you should be ok

No, do not assume this until u get the rejection. I was told I was the 3rd person taken on and they where looking for 10 in total and this was a month ago so there is still hope.alao the offer was via a phone call just less than 2 weeks after the interview

Oh I applied for a project management role not software one, I lost hope because I thought theyre just keeping me on the system with others to send out an automated rejection to everyone at once and not separate once you get rejected

Waiting three months just to know whether or not you passed an in-person interview is terrible. I know the job market is tough for graduates, but if you do by chance have another job lined up, I would take it. You are worth much more than that. Either way, good luck.

Hi, I have just passed my application for the Project Management graduate scheme and have been invited to complete the online assessment. Does anyone know what it’ll entail? My email confirmation says interview questions and then gamed based assessment testing competencies. However I’ve looked online and there’s so many different tests sites are suggesting that BAE do.Any help would be appreciated

Are they just general questions? Or based on BAE values? And what do the ‘games’ involve?
It is yeah, at warton/Salmsbury. How did you get on?

Tell us about a time when you have handled huge pressure in a work/uni related situation?
Tell us about a time when you had a conflict at work or uni. Bad team Member, not working well with someone?
Tell us about a time when you worked as part of a team to complete a difficult task?

Those are some examples, but there are over 50 different questions they may ask.

Also, make sure you stick to the STAR method when answering:

Situation: Describe the situation and when it took place.
Task: Explain the task and what was the goal.
Action: Provide details about the action you took to attain this.
Result: Conclude with the result of your action.

As for the games, i completely forgot i did them! They where just matching up shapes as far as i remember, and they are timed.
