    Inventory Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pooler, GA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at JCB (Pooler, GA (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Very long and drawn out. It took months with 3 phone screenings and 3 face to face interviews. I was a finalist and they never called me back to let me know that they promoted someone from within. I had called several times to the hiring manger and HR, and after all the time I put in they didn't have the decency to call me back or respond to me. I had to hear about the results from an employee that worked there. Its ok that I didn't get the job, its just the fact they they wouldn't get back to me.

    Graduate Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rocester, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at JCB (Rocester, England (UK)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    The first stage is the application process is to fill the application form which will ask you to fill in a series of questions as to why did you choose JCB etc. If you are successful in the first step, you would then be invited for a full day assessment ( Mine took place at Rochester, UK). In the assessment centre, you would be asked to do the following:
    1. Presentation - In which you would be told to focus on a project or your personal achievements which would make you suitable to work for JCB.
    2. Basic Test- This includes basic A- Level physics types questions, pulleys, mass, moment etc. This is time
    3. Further Test- There are questions relating to basic electricity, basic mechanics, basic fluid mechanics, basic material processing, etc. Then you are also asked a question regarding JCB history, its value (It is done to test if you have really researched the company well)
    4. 1 to 1 Interview - Fairly standard 20 mins interview
    5. Group Exercise- They will ask you to build and dismantle a structure like an IKEA furniture as many time possible (but remember !!! This is a teamwork and you should listen and value everyone's opinion - My piece of advice be yourself )

    If you are successful - then you'll receive a conditional offer ( you'll have to get 2:1 and above)
    and then they will call you for a familiarisation day which includes a drug test.

    If you pass all these then you get the final permanent contract with JCB ..
