Has anybody else applied for this scheme? I have a telephone interview for it this afternoon, and was wondering if anybody else was at the same stage?
I had it a few weeks ago as well. did you progress to the next stage?
I progressed to the 2nd the interview stage. Have to go to Edinburgh on tuesday for a face to face interview. Don't really know what questions to expect apart from standard interview questions and motivations on joining the program and Heineken. What division are you going for? I'm going for corporate relations.
hey..ive got the second interview on wednesday. ive applied for HR. i think it would be a competency based interview. http://www.heineken.co.uk/Candidate_Interview_Information_v2.pdf have a look at that if you havent already come across it. it helps you with the competency questions they might ask...like what topics might come up. other than that, i guess standard questions would come up. goodluck...would really like an update after your interview. goodluck!
Hey this is great man thanks. I'll keep you posted
ure welcome. yeah..please do!im quite nervous lolz
how'd it go?mine's tomorrow:s
Hi! I had my second interview as well last week. Anyone got any feedback if you got through to the assessment day? I haven't heard back from them yet!
Nope...haven't heard back yet!
same no news...
hey, i've heard back from them and i got through to the assessment centre stage....any ideas on what to expect?
Congrats motivated! I also got through to the assessment centre :) (finance function, 21-22 June). From what I understand we'll be flying in the day before, anyone wanna meet up and hang out?
I haven't heard yet but they keep saying they still have final decisions to send backk. Congrats to u guys!
Thanks, hope you make it to the ac :)
Thanks stef85! I also applied for the finance function...hopefully we'll be able to meet up! Thanks sans633, I also hope u make it through as well...good luck!
Congrats Motivated and Stef85. Just got the message that I got through as well:) I am flying over the 27th of June, anyone else attending the assessment centre 28 & 29 June?
hey still waiting to hear and getting very impatient by now! how did you guys get to know?email or phone? i got a phone call from an unknown number a little while ago but it got disconnected so really confused and anxious by now! congrats to u guys...atleast uve all been put out of ur misery!:)
To sans633; I got an e-mail requesting to confirm attendance for the A/C, but then they also called because they had posted the wrong reply address and hadn't received my confirmation. So I guess either e-mail or phone! Sorry I can't be of much help :(
to E10; Congrats! I'm attending on the 21st-22nd, so we won't be on the same group! Good luck :)
I just stumbled on this forum! Congrats to everyone who is in the AC so far, I also got an answer on Friday and I'll be there 21& 22nd (M&S function).
@Stef85 - I would totally be in for hanging out on arrival day :) - Great idea!
Anyone else? :)
They called me first and sent me an e-mail afterwards. They called me with an unknown number, so it might have been them Sans633. I am actually attending the 21 & 22nd as well, they changed the date. So I am up for hanging out as well :)
Great, let's talk once we get our flight info and arrange a meeting place/time :)
Thanks guys.still waiting!
I'm also in for 21- 22. anyone any idea of the structure of the AC? Im for the HR function btw
Hey there bluemoon1987, congratulations!
No idea what to expect at the AC other than the brief description at the IGP website, perhaps the formal invitation will include some sort of activities listing? Haven't received it yet though so no idea really.
Has anyone else received their invitation and flight/hotel info? Any news yet, sans633?
cool! I'm scheduled for the 21st & 22nd as well, and wouldn't mind hanging out. No idea on the structure though, and haven't gotten any confirmation of the flight/hotel.
But are there 2 ACs on the 21 and 22? Because on their webpage it says 1 day AC so im not sure why they say 21-22 unless one day would be for briefing. I got a plane ticket to confirm but needed to change some things so still waiting for the final one.
Got my flight info this morning! I'm flying in @ 13:00, so will have the whole day for sightseeing. No hotel info yet though, do you guys think they'll set us all up at the same place? That would be pretty convenient!
P.S. I think there's only one AC on the 21st-22nd, I guess the activities might be spread out between the two days? I also think there will be a visit to the Heineken Experience museum and other stuff under "socialising" :P
Have you all gotten the information pack? Guess we'll get to hang out at the welcome dinner :) Have a great trip and hope to see you all there!
Hi guys! Flying in over for the a/c. Mine is 21 and 22. Supply Chain function. Have you all gotten your information packs? What is expected of us?
Hello everybody! I just came across this forum.. :) good that I did! Congratulations to all who have been admitted! E10...I will also participate to the AC on the 28&29!! :):) Which function did you apply for? Looking forward to meet you! :)
I am completing my degree this year and I would like to take part in the Heineken scheme next year.
How did the AC go? Was it tough? Thanks and good luck!!
The AC was a lot more fun than anticipated! The actual "assessment" parts were interesting and challenging, though nothing extreme (demanding but not too tough, to answer your question), and we spent a lot of time on and off the AC getting to know the other candidates, the assessors and other Heineken personnel. The team in charge of the IGP had set up a lot of fun events, and I think we all enjoyed the experience and making new acquaintances. I would definately recommend that you apply; regardless of the outcome, you'll get to spend an awesome couple of days hanging out with cool people and developing your interview skills.
Best of luck with the job hunting!
Nice one Stef.
Guess you know who is this?
Is anyone applying for the Heineken IGP this year?
Would those who have previously applied be able to provide any advice for the online application? What are the key things to highlight in the CV/Cover Letter?
HELLO!! Just wondering, for those who applied and got past the first couple of stages -- did you have masters? or just bachelors? THANK YOU!!!!!!
I was one of the few that made it to the final assessment stage, a never-to-forget experience. We all had at least a Master's degree, but that is not to say if you don't have a strong first degree you shouldn't apply. Apply and be ready to prove your worth along the way.
Did you manage to make it through to the next round? I am yet to hear from them
I have yet to hear from them either.
Hi guys, I have also applied for the graduate scheme in Amsterdam and I have to take the tests. Any useful tips? What kind of tests should I expect?
Hi I just finished mine. Went ok, though ran out of time. How did you guys do?
What field have you applied for?
I have applied for Finance and I will take the test tomorrow morning. Hope it'll be ok. how many questions were there? and was it numerical, verbal reasoning and pattern recognition? Cause in the e-mail I received it was mentioned that the test will take no more than 25 min, which is not much at all.
hi guys! i will take the test tomorrow morning! any hints? how was it?
Hey! the test is pretty easy with questions being primarily on Logical reasoning. I dint have much practice of late and found it ok so dont think you guys should have much problem to be honest.
Hi! Did you get any reply yet? I did the test on Thursday morning as well and still no response, i'm beginning to feel a bit anxious.
Hi, I have an assessment day coming up for business systems. Could anyone kindly provide more info on the various activities taking place on the assessment day?
I have a telephone interview on Thursday and would like to know what kind of questions to expect. Can anyone help...?
Thanks in advance...;-)
Hi! Congrats for continuing to the next step. At the top of the comments page smbd posted a linked, where is written in details what sort of questions to expect for the interview.
When have you completed the online test? I am still hoping to get a reply from them. Don't want to believe I haven't made the logic reasoning test well enough :P
Hi and cogratulation for passing the online ability test. I haven't heard anything from them after making the test. I am a little bit worried. Nowomanocry have you been contacted by e-mail or else to set up a telephone interview? Thank you in advance!
