Ask Questions

Whilst we will ask you a lot of questions throughout the recruitment process, the interview is, of course, a two-way process and we encourage you to be inquisitive and to interview us too.

After all, you are assessing Princes to see if we can offer you the role, environment and development opportunities you are looking for in your career. Prepare questions in advance of the interview to ensure that you are clear on the role and expectations.

Relax

We appreciate that interviews can be nerve-wracking experiences, but we want you to feel relaxed and comfortable during the process to ensure that you have the best opportunity to showcase your experience and suitability for the role.

Behavioural Interviews

Our interviews are based on behavioural – or situational – questions. Some examples of these types of questions could be: Tell me about a time when you had to work closely with someone whose personality was very different from your own; or how would you go about prioritising a customer’s needs when you’re working with a large number of customers? We like to ask these sorts of questions in a job interview because they allow us to get a feel for how you would handle particular situations in a solution-based way.

It’s also a good idea to review the job description and your CV prior to the interview because nobody knows your strengths better than you do. Take some time to reflect on your relevant past accomplishments.

We recommend using the STAR method when structuring your answers in a competency-based interview. The STAR model is a structured manner of responding to a behavioural interview question by discussing the specific Situation, Task, Action and Result of what you’re describing.

Situation: Set the scene and give the necessary details of your example.
Task: Describe what your responsibility was in that situation.
Action: Explain exactly what steps you took to address it.
Result: Share what outcomes your actions achieved.

FIND YOUR PERFECT JOB

Princes offers the opportunity to be part of a dynamic business that invests in our people. Come and be part of our future.
