    I worked at High Speed Two full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, new build and fully equipped offices, with up to date meeting room provisions

    Cons

    Lacking organisational culture, think this will improve over time, as reasonably new organisation.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at High Speed Two (Birmingham, England (UK)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Competency and skills based questions. Fairly standard questions around how you would handle difficult situations and employees, plus technical based questions; what was challenging, how did you overcome this, what went well, what went badly etc. Line manager of the role and HR rep very welcoming and eased into thr interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you tell me about a time when you've had to pursuade someone to follow your idea when they disagreed with it.   Answer Question
