    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SSE.

    Interview

    1) online application - fairly rigerrous application.

    2) online tests - this consisted of competency, mechanical reasoning and a switch board questionnaire.

    3) telephone interview - competenacy based interview lasting around 15 mins.

    4) assessment centre - even though I passed the telephone interview, I was then told , a day after passing the phone interview, that there were no spaces available.
