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?
2 June 2011 - 12:06am
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!
2 June 2011 - 11:47am
same no news...
6 June 2011 - 1:34am
hey, i've heard back from them and i got through to the assessment centre stage....any ideas on what to expect?
6 June 2011 - 9:43am
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?
6 June 2011 - 11:57am
Thanks, hope you make it to the ac :)
6 June 2011 - 1:47pm
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!
7 June 2011 - 11:28am
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?
7 June 2011 - 2:03pm
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 :)
7 June 2011 - 2:26pm
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? :)
7 June 2011 - 3:21pm
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 :)
7 June 2011 - 4:14pm
Great, let's talk once we get our flight info and arrange a meeting place/time :)
8 June 2011 - 12:20pm
I'm also in for 21- 22. anyone any idea of the structure of the AC? Im for the HR function btw
8 June 2011 - 5:33pm
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?
8 June 2011 - 6:39pm
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.
8 June 2011 - 7:23pm
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.
9 June 2011 - 9:40am
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!
9 June 2011 - 9:44am
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
10 June 2011 - 7:51am
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!
11 June 2011 - 9:53am
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?
11 June 2011 - 9:55am
17 June 2011 - 3:47pm
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! :)
25 June 2011 - 4:41pm
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!!
26 June 2011 - 4:38pm
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!
26 June 2011 - 5:19pm
Nice one Stef.
26 June 2011 - 5:22pm
Guess you know who is this?
12 January 2012 - 5:03pm
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?
25 January 2012 - 5:52am
HELLO!! Just wondering, for those who applied and got past the first couple of stages -- did you have masters? or just bachelors? THANK YOU!!!!!!
25 January 2012 - 8:25am
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.
29 February 2012 - 3:13pm
Did you manage to make it through to the next round? I am yet to hear from them
29 February 2012 - 7:41pm
I have yet to hear from them either.
6 March 2012 - 12:02am
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?
7 March 2012 - 7:30pm
Hi I just finished mine. Went ok, though ran out of time. How did you guys do?
What field have you applied for?
7 March 2012 - 8:34pm
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.
7 March 2012 - 9:26pm
hi guys! i will take the test tomorrow morning! any hints? how was it?
8 March 2012 - 7:17pm
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.
12 March 2012 - 12:48pm
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.
25 March 2012 - 8:49pm
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?
25 March 2012 - 11:08pm
I have a telephone interview on Thursday and would like to know what kind of questions to expect. Can anyone help...?
Thanks in advance...;-)
25 March 2012 - 11:31pm
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
26 March 2012 - 1:31pm
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!
26 March 2012 - 2:12pm
Go onto the website and have a look at the selection process. It says that They will initiate the whole Telephone interview round only from the 26th of March, Which is today!!
I think its a bit too much to expect that we all receive updates on our applications today itself when you consider that most of us only got the mail invites for the online test a couple of days after the scheduled start date!!
28 March 2012 - 1:27pm
I was wondering if anybody could shed some light on the telephone interview round. Has any of you taken the test already?
I have mine on Monday
29 March 2012 - 3:13pm
I have my telephone interview next Tuesday... I'm so nervous! Any advice? :)
2 April 2012 - 9:29am
I suppose that not having heard from them yet means not passed the online test. i wish you all the best of luck!
5 April 2012 - 2:20pm
Hi everybody, I just came across this forum. I had the telephone interview on Monday (for the finance programme). It was all about standard questions like "Why do you wanna work for Heineken? Why exactly this function? and so on. Nothing out of the blue... Today I just received the e-mail that I passed through the telephone interview and I am invited to the face-to-face one in 2 weeks. Maybe the ones who got through the process last year can share their experiences? Is it again about motivations and so on or more competency-based questions? Thank you a lot, guys, your help will be highly appreciated ;)
20 April 2012 - 1:45pm
Hey if u find anything send me a message too..!!!!! :D
21 April 2012 - 10:31am
I am having my interview on monday, and they told me that it will be competency-based questions. Has anyone else applied for the supply chain function?
23 May 2012 - 7:25pm
21 April 2012 - 2:11pm
Hi guys, I have my face to face interview as well this Tuesday and I didn't receive much info either, but as far as I've heard it's going to be mostly about yourself and your compatibility with Heineken. They didn't tell me anything about competency based questions. mh86, what kind of questions do you think they are referring to?
23 May 2012 - 7:26pm
Hey raxana.isaiu...for what function have u applied??? I was only told that I am going to have an interview in order to meet me better, thats all......
