Certain conditions but it is the golden cage after all.
Its people (management). Lies. Poor administration. Its not what you know but who you know. Serious people issues.
I applied online. I interviewed at European Investment Bank.
Applied online on November 2017. Received online test invitations two week after application deadline. Just one day after online test i have recieved invite to HireVue interview
They said they have sample questions and they strongly recommend to prepare for them. I have checked all sample interview questions provided by EIB. They were typical motivation questions like:
-Why you are a perfect candidate
-Tell me about yourself
-Why do you want to work for EIB
Three sample questions provided by EIB was above or similar questions. Moreover i also checked all youtube material about Hirevue
And than interview day had come. There were 6 questions. First question was a motivation question similar to samples and it was ok. But all remaining five was technical questions and i wasnt expecting that. If you provide 3 sample questions and all of them are motivation questins real interview should be similar. Questions as i remember:
-What do you know about procurement operations
-What are the main criteria in social and environmental side of energy projects
-Tell us an energy project you complete.
The remaining two was again job related/technical
Of course you must also be preperad to this kind of questions but if you, i mean EIB, provide 3 sample question candidate expect majority of the interview should be on that basis.
So i wasnt prepared and i couldnt answer properly.
But i will apply again if similar positions open again
