Competency- based intervew with Kerry Group

6 October 2010 - 4:50pm

Hi everyone, I would like to ask you if anyone has already been to a competency based interview with Kerry Group. I am applying for the graduate program in Finance this year and I am almost in the end of the selection process. I have read almost all post in regards to the competency based interview in Wikijob but I feel a little bit confused because I think I won't have enough time to prepare my responds to all questions. I am going to have my interview after two weeks. I would really appreciate if someone could give me some advice in relation to the Kerry's Group competency- based interview. Thank you

Hi, I've been invited to take a telephone interview with Kerry group foods on Friday. The position I applied for is within their HR graduate programme. Anyone have any experience for this post? What to expect? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi guys, I don't know if you've already had your interviews, but I just had mine. It wasn't exactly what I expected, so I had to improvise a lot haha.
Questions (not in this exact order):
Why do you want for Kerry?
Why do you want to work in the Food industry?
How is the current economic conditions affecting the Food industry and how is this affecting Kerry?
What do you think makes you suitable for Accounting & Finance?
Which area of Finance are you most interested in?
How could Finance contribute to Kerry's future success?
Tell me about a time when you felt strongly about an idea and how did you make sure it was implemented?

* If I remember any more I will let you know.

Well they did asked a few tricky questions (competency) so I am a bit pessimistic about getting through tot he next stage, but we will see...make sure you prepare lots of competency examples and maybe try and link them to the job you are applying to, as how you would add value. Lastly, know your weaknesses and strengths as they might ask about it as well!
