Interview Advice:

Be yourself.
Again, don't just talk about your degree if asked what you are proud of/ best achievement etc.
If asked about weaknesses, state your weakness(es) but also how you are working to improve them.

Application Advice:

List all good experience, it may not be abundantly obvious that it's transferable but a good interviewer should see past the face value and actually at the skills you've used along the way. Anything regarding problem solving or bringing people around to your way of thinking - especially good if it was with senior colleagues.

Interview Advice:

Prepare plenty of examples of problem solving in the past, both successful examples and a couple of not so successful, but how you learnt from it and what you would do differently next time.

Application Advice:

- It is a long application process. I had 1 telephone interview, online tests, graduate day interview, presentation interview and a final interview with the North business manager.
- Be prepared to put a lot of effort into the application.
- It's not all about your degree, compass want to know what skills you have learnt from life and previous jobs.

Interview Advice:

- Make sure you research the company. It is massive, make sure you understand your sector correctly.
- For nutrition, make sure you are up to date on all new government legalisation and research.

Interview Advice:

Do not stress too much about the interview. In my experience the application and assessment day were the most important - following which you may be invited to an interview.

The interview was fairly informal and used to reinforce what they have seen in you throughout the assessment day.

Application Advice:

- Work on your CV whilst at university. Make sure you use your university summer holidays wisely to get work experience and do not waste them away!
- Take the time to research the company as they will definitely quiz you.
- Don't panic about the online aptitude tests. You will probably think you have done worse than you actually have.

Interview Advice:

- Even if you think you do not have specific work experience relevant to the role think about university societies or part-time jobs as this is all something that they look at. I was specifically asked if I had a part-time job whilst studying at university (luckily I had).
- Really study the job description and think of examples of scenarios that you may be presented with on the job.
- Relax and enjoy. Everyone is really friendly and helpful!

Application Advice:

Try to be honest about your current skills and experience, and about why you are interested in the job. The graduate scheme is about taking on people who have the potential and the motivation to learn, not about who has the most knowledge already, so try to give examples of your personal qualities as well as your qualifications.

Interview Advice:

Talk to other graduates on the assessment day, as it will help to put you at ease and will show off your communication and relationship-building skills. Make sure you have done a little research into Compass, and have an idea of which area you might like to work in, so you can use this in conversation. Try to have a couple of interesting questions that you can ask on the day as well. Make sure you contribute your ideas to the group tasks and try to actively involve others who may be more reserved and bring them into the discussion.

Application Advice:

My interviewer focused on the non-education elements of my CV e.g. work experience and outside interests.

Interview Advice:

I had two assessments: one group assessment and then an individual interview. They sent all of the interviewees some example financial statements the day before the assessment day. I would encourage applicants to read through these carefully and perform their own analysis. Note that they told us that it would take 20 minutes to walk from the train station, but it is actually morel like 30-40, so be careful to arrive on time.

Graduate, at Compass Group
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Be aware that Compass tends to do their interview process later than other employers - but don't worry about it! If you are interested from an early stage to work with compass, why not get some operational experience at one of our racecourses or stadiums which will give you an understanding of what we do. You'll then be able to use this knowledge through the interview process!

Interview Advice:

You will initially send in your CV with a few questions. Secondly, you'll be invited to take online tests in maths and verbal reasoning. Thirdly, you will be invited to a group assessment day, here you will take part in group tasks to demonstrate teamwork skills and showcase yourself amongst others. Lastly, if successful you will be invited back for a 1-2-1 interview where you will be asked mainly competency based questions. You can prepare for questions like these by googling competency questions!

Application Advice:

I think having a link to your LinkedIn profile on your CV is beneficial in order for the employer to put a name to a face and differentiate yourself from most other applicants.

Interview Advice:

A lot of the interviewing process is done through assessment centres, which is comprised of a group task, an individual task and a brief presenting task. Try and present a quietly confident image. Being either loud and pushy or too quiet to put your ideas across won't come across very well.

Graduate, Finance at Compass Group

Application Advice:

You should have a "can-do", positive attitude, be flexible with working hours and really passionate about your work to excel in this company. You have to have a rough idea of how a catering company works, but it isn't a major issue if you've never worked in one before. Make your application interesting, you want to stand out from the rest of the graduates!

Interview Advice:

The Graduate Scheme interview was lots of team based activities - one question was "If you could have breakfast with anyone at all, who would it be, where and why?" - a really random question for an interview but unlike other. You become relaxed and can show your true personality. You need to be able to work as team, don't talk over the top of everyone else, listen, but make sure you get your word in and be confident with it.

Operations Support Manager, ESS at Compass Group

Don't be worried about the tasks and the people along the way. Make sure you be yourself and try to get involved with as many things as possible (without over doing it).

Interview Advice:

Research the company well and think of why you want to work here. Show your passion and readiness to learn things and to change things as well.

Compass seeks people with the highest potential, so prove you are ambitious, hard working, inquisitive and respect the company you are applying to.

Interview Advice:

Be confident and open, you won't be assessed only on your skills and knowledge, but also on your team work abilities, leadership and creativity. On my assessment centre I had 3 tasks and only one of them was finance related - the other two were aimed to assess our team building skills. The assessment day was actually enjoyable so don't feel stressed and try to enjoy yourself.

Application Advice:

The first piece of advice I'd give to candidates is to be open-minded. Compass offers a huge scope of different professions and is not solely just catering. Just by being part of the Graduate Programme I have already experienced the vastness of the Business and thus the opportunities available. If you'd asked me this time last year what I'd be doing, I would never have said I'd work in schools or in Kitchen Units helping to develop nutritious school meals. But now, I couldn't imagine a better first job to have.

The second piece of advice I'd give is to be flexible and willing to learn. If you apply to work at Compass there will always be new information to take on as well as new experiences and new people. Learning and education does not stop at University!

Interview Advice:

If you are applying for a Nutrition position at Compass, I would suggest making sure you are up to date on all the latest Government initiatives (e.g. SACN Sugar Recommendations) as well as the School Food Plan and Food for Life Accreditation marks. Being able to evidence that you have worked with different age groups/catering would be a really good start.
Personal qualities are also extremely important in an interview. Showing that you are determined, good-willed, hard-working, flexible, reliable are all really important traits to have when working in a role like this. Having living examples of how you have shown each of these qualities may well stand you out from other people.

Application Advice:

My one piece of advice would be to be yourself. Currently working in recruitment, it is really easy to spot someone who is trying to be someone they are not. It's always refreshing to find someone who is confident in not only their ability, but their own personality, and how they can use this to progress. I would also recommend displaying flexibility and not narrowing your future plans to one path, as this can really open up opportunities for you.

Interview Advice:

I had to complete an initial online application, then online tests, a video interview, and finally face-to-face interviews.

A common question I was asked was "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" This can be difficult to answer when you've only just graduated, so my recommendation would be to be honest. If you don't know, then tell your interviewer this! Turn it into a positive, and show how flexible and excited you are that your career may take many different directions.

I would also recommend researching both the company and the specific sector you are interested in!

Finally, work experience is really valuable. Whilst university qualifications are great, show how you have mixed this with work experience to help you apply what you've learned. A knowledge of how a business works is really appealing to employers, so show that you've taken the time to understand this, and have experienced it first hand.

Application Advice:

I would advise future candidates to take the time to thoroughly research Compass Group before even attempting the application. I would suggest gaining knowledge of their history and development of the company as it is today, their values, what sectors they cover, their competitors and what has been happening in the news and social media. I found LinkedIn in particular extremely useful to research influential people and to understand more about the different sectors and job roles. Compass Group is such an enormous company it can take a while to grasp this knowledge and understanding.

Interview Advice:

The fact that you have got through to the interview stage clearly means that you are a strong candidate, however you still need to prove that you are capable and fit with Compass Group's culture.
I would advise candidates to give consideration to their image before they even step into the interview room. Creating the right impression from the start is essential. I always keep in mind that old saying, 'you never get a second chance to make a first impression'. Choose your outfit wisely and think about dressing to complement the image you are looking to portray.

I believe that what you don't say in an interview is just as important as what you do say. I found focusing on the following extremely useful:
Making eye contact with the interviewer; this portrays true listening skills
Posture- Walk tall, stand tall and sit tall; this portrays confidence and power
Keeping your facial expression animated;this portrays enthusiasm and energy

Last but not least, be yourself and let your personality shine through. Authenticity is key!

Make sure you know exactly what is being offered and recognize that this is very different from university. You will have take responsibility for your own progress and development. If you want something to change you will have to ask for it; you can have support form the grad scheme managers but only if you ask for it and make them aware if you are unhappy with anything.

Interview Advice:

Be confident and charismatic. The interviewers want to see who you really are, the people who have excelled so far on the grad scheme have been those who are not afraid to say what they think or promote themselves with things they have done well. Also be smart, you will have a lot of competition and you need to stand out; be over dressed not under dressed!

Be yourself in the interivew. At the interview with the sector you probably wont be asked about what you know about the business. It is a question that inteviewers expect you to know regardless. But prepared to be asked about questions relating to any challenges you may have faced and how did you manage it, what was the outcome of the challenge.

Be yourself as well, it may be a cliche but at the end of the day unless you want to try and keep an act up for 24/7 you won't succeed.

Application Advice:

Don't rush it - take the time to really think about the questions they're asking you and then write up and edit your answers. But get to the point. Answer the question they are asking you and refer back constantly. Check and check again for spelling and grammatical errors. Answer it in good time also, don't leave it until the deadline.
Include anything that makes you stand out to other people.
Prepare and practice for any tests you might need to take, e.g. verbal reasoning, inductive reasoning etc.

Interview Advice:

Research the company and prepare for sets of questions. Go in confident and optimistic and with the mindset that the company has given you an interview, so they like what they have seen so far.
Dress smart, be early, keep eye contact
Try to stay calm, everyone gets nervous for interviews and remember that. The more research and practice questions you prepare for, the more calm you'll be on the day. Above everything else, be confident in yourself that you have the required skill and experience to do the job, you just need to demonstrate that to the company.
Know you CV thoroughly and refer to the skills and experience you have listed on it when asked questions.

Application Advice:

My main piece of advice for applicants when applying would be to be honest when filling in applications. From talking to collegues, it is very easy to spot an application that has been 'filled up' with useless information. Keep the application clear, and focus on the key points that make you stand out. Don't try and over impress employers, instead, highlight your key achievements, and show your willingness to learn and mould to the employer. It is also really important to show an interest and knowledge in the company you are applying for. Simply looking on their website isn't always enough; instead, maybe find a recent news article or look through a few pages of their annual report!

Interview Advice:

I was often asked "where do you see yourself in 5 years time". After finishing university my honest answer to this was "I really don't know". So rather than making this sound negative, I emphasised the fact that I didn't really mind what I was doing, as long as I was excited by my job, and in a position of responsiblity.

Apart from that, again, my only advice is to completely be yourself. Employers are looking for people that are unique and can add their own stamp to their job. Standing out by being funny, interesting etc can make you stand out from the rest and make people remember you.

It is also really important to dress smartly for interviews. There were people that really stood out in my assessment centres for looking really scruffy. When I conduct assessment centres myself now; I always notice the smartly dressed applicants and remember them. I also remember the applicants that smile as they enter the room, and those that make conversation with me.
