Hi everyone, I have a Competency Based Telephone Interview with Abbey. Can anyone help by giving some tips on questions asked?? Above provided details are quite helpful but can anyone help more by sharing their original experience with some specific questions asked during interview.
I also have a Competency based telephone interview with Abbey, for a mortgage & protection advisor role. How did your interviews go and can you please help with what kind of questions have been asked? Thanks.
I have interview at Santander for a Business Specialist/Consultant Role, has anyone had this interview?? Its going to be a case study interview followed by a competency based interview... Any tips?
i have my interview in a weeks time, how did you do in yours?? Any tips??
I had one of these about a year ago (resulting in rather vague memory of it! Especially as I was rejected after the tel interview), had a look through my notes but couldn't find any of my Abbey prep notes...
In addition to the standard competency-based questions (which are covered really well in the links above), there were also questions around "Why Abbey?", "What made you choose Abbey over other high street banks?" (Tricky one that), "What is your greatest achievement?". If I remember right they also asked how Abbey was different from other banks.
I personally would be preparing to answer any questions on the credit crunch/recession and its impact on Abbey. (Remember that Santander, owner of Abbey, had come out of the crisis looking very good, having made prudent decisions).
hope that helps in your preparation and good luck tomorrow!
