    Auditor Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Centrica (Windsor, South East England, England (UK)) in January-2013.

    Interview

    1st round: Numerical and verbal reasoning tests, followed by competency based assessment.
    2nd round: Interview with 2 senior managers (Directors) from the team. The subject matter is based on a case study meant to exemplify the typical expectations of the role.

    1st round is a standard Pearson/similar verbal and numerical test where performance is ranked against others who have taken the same test.

    The case study requires you to prepare responses to a few broad questions to help demonstrate your awareness of risk identification and the sort of best practice controls which might mitigate the risks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Centrica (Windsor, South West England, England (UK)) in February-2017.

    Interview

    Interview was warm and relaxing but the interviewers couldn't honestly give many positives in regards to the organisation as they were going through a lot of change. It took about 3 weeks between interviews for any feedback and when I was offered the role I had already accepted another position

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Centrica (London, England (UK)) in February-2016.

    Interview

    Had an online application and numerical/verbal tests. Were fairly easy except when clicking to the next question it took around 10-30 seconds and this came off my time! Which made it more strenuous. Got through this and then had a telephone interview. Mixed difficulty questions; standard about the company and strengths based. What about learning methods that threw me. Waiting to here whether i have an AC.
