Be yourself! That was the advice given to me and as basic as it sounds it honestly is true.

Interview Advice:

When in group activities don't feel pressured to talk over people and stand out, showing you can listen and understand is as important as getting your point across.

Business IT graduate, IT at DCC plc

Application Advice:

Make sure your presentation is short and succinct and focus more on the potential questions you could be asked- why you chose your sources and why they are relevant. Also learn any references/sources you used as this is asked quite frequently.

Don't skip answers on the logic tests held at the assessment centres. Even though the test is negatively marked, abstaining from an answer will statistically make you do worse.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you talk about your acheivements as that is why they are interviewing you in the first place, because they have read your application and liked something there!

Make sure you have a broad knowledge of DCC's financials and operating structure and know some of the names of subsidiaries.

Interview Advice:

Prepare fully for your interviews, make sure you have lots of real life examples which really show that you have the required competencies and you have developed these through your degree and work experience.

Application Advice:

Watch the video on the graduate mirco site to identify the skills and characteristics they are looking for in a graduate. Be sure to highlight these in your application.

Interview Advice:

Focus on identifying the skills and characteristics in the aforementioned video and give specific answers of times you have demonstrated these. Know the company and it's competitors inside out. Relax and think your answers through thoroughly.

Graduate Executive, Energy at DCC plc

Application Advice:

Be honest, be clear about what your aims are and what you want to achieve within a company and always keep an open mind. The scheme expects you to be flexible, not only with location but also with jobs you have to take part in. Some are more full on and intense than others so it's important to be flexible and determined.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you have plenty of competency questions practiced; have your answers planned out and examples of situations you have been in.
Be yourself. There is no point pretending to be someone you're not as the company looks for people that will fit in with their ethics, so be open and friendly and you'll be fine.
Make sure your appearance is professional as sometimes people's business dress let them down I think.

Application Advice:

Have interest in business and adding value as opposed to being interested in a particular industry as the company and program is so diverse. Don't be too worried about your understanding of the business, and vague understanding and being able to show you researched them is plenty. Seems cliché but just be yourself. They know what kind of person will suit the program, you may not be suited!

Interview Advice:

Remember that all those in the interview and assessment process are human. Don't be too robot just relax and talk to them like one of your relatives. Be professional but not stiff trust me it will relax them and you far better.

Graduate Executive, Flogas at DCC plc

Application Advice:

It sounds like a cliché, but be yourself. It's not so much about what you know (you will be rotating in 3 different functions) as much as it is about your attitude towards learning and development. If you are an entrepreneurial type this is definitely the company for you.

Interview Advice:

If you make it to the assessment centre relax and enjoy yourself (while remaining professional of course) - nobody is there to catch you out.

Graduate Executive, at DCC plc

Application Advice:

Be very honest - this job requires good relationships and networks, so be down to earth and try to understand as much as possible

Interview Advice:

Have lots of competency examples ready

Operations Manager, Operations at DCC plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure you understand how DCC makes its money, and from this consider the main drivers in DCC and make sure you can apply previous experience to these drivers.

Also research some of the subsidiaries of DCC and there are more than you think!

Interview Advice:

Apply competencies to your experience and make sure you state how YOU did this (not we etc.)

I would recommend the STAR method of answering questions:
Situation: What was the context and overview of the scenario you are explaining
Task: What was the overall task, and what tasks were YOU specifically assigned
Action: What did YOU do to help the situation, were they any problems that you had to deal with and if so, how did you personally make sure that it was solved (or how did you identify and stop potential obstacles?)
Result: What was the short term outcome of the scenario, and what are the longer term outcomes that have arisen from your actions?

Marketing Executive, Medical Devices at DCC plc

Application Advice:

Don't worry too much about what your degree was in, the application process focuses on you as an individual and your own strengths.

Interview Advice:

Generally competency based questions. E.g. 'Tell me about a time that you demonstrated your ability to challenge established systems and make an improvement for the better'

Retail Account Manager, Retail Catalogue at DCC plc

Application Advice:

Get to know the company and the industries well and use the interview to find out more. DCC has a difficult structure to understand and it's understandable that you won't know everything about the company. Use the interviewers to find out more.
Make contact with someone from the company and use them as a resource in the lead up to the interview.

Interview Advice:

Competency based interview

Application Advice:

Demonstrate a diverse range of interests and experiences and relate these to the business world
Show a desire to challenge yourself and develop quickly
Declare any interests in gaining international experience

Interview Advice:

Gain a good understanding of the company, it's operating divisions and subsidiaries
Understand DCC growth and acquisition history
A broad understanding of corporate finance is important

IT Project Manager, IT at DCC plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The company as a whole is looking to grow more internationally, so if you have a passion for travel, other cultures or other languages make sure to include this. Of course, if you have any international experience, get that in too: language classes; exchange placement; travelling; international internship etc.

Don't feel overwhelmed by the apparent complexity of the corporate structure compared to other companies with graduate schemes. I spent hours revising this and wasn't asked a single question on this through the entire process.

If they get you to do a presentation, make sure you have sources and reasons why you used those sources. It was the first question they asked me in the Q&A afterwards.

Interview Advice:

The advice I would give to anyone on the final interview (or even the phone interview) is that something in your application has got their interest - don't be afraid to refer to, or elaborate on, what your wrote on the application - this is what they want to hear!

Marketing Executive, at DCC plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Look at the big picture, the group defines the subsidiaries so look at where DCC is going in the future, they are highly acquisitive and their acquisition activity will be indicative of where they expect growth moving forward. Improve your knowledge of the existing business across all industries as you may end up working in any of these. Show them that you are flexible on location/role - they look for this.

Interview Advice:

Compare different existing businesses in a different country - where should DCC look to invest, questions about your personality and attitude more than experience.

Marketing Manager, Marketing at DCC plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Know your strengths and focus on them. People can focus too much on improving their weaknesses at the detriment to amplifying their positive traits. But know that when you apply you should always structure your strengths two ways - 1. Why I'm good at it something and 2. How this strength will benefit the company if they hire me. People mostly concentrate on point one which is a huge mistake.

Interview Advice:

Prepare everything. Do practice tests, research questions they could ask you. Do your homework for any interview basically.

Application Advice:

Be you and don't be afraid to write down something that may seem a bit quirky - it'll help you stand out in the crowd.

Interview Advice:

Have a look through the competencies the company are looking for. It won't hurt to prep a few answers that would show how you demonstrate what they're looking for.

Application Advice:

Take enough time to complete the application thoroughly. Research the company before the interview.

Application Advice:

Knowledge of the DCC businesses, an eye for the group's strategy and a sound understanding of the key financial ratios that all Plc. are measured by.

Business IT Graduate Executive, HR & Payroll at DCC plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

For every question you are asked, try to relate it back to real-life examples that are recent. i.e. in the last two years. If you cannot think of an example, be honest and outline what you WOULD do if you were in this situation. However, for the written application you should really try and think of experiences ideally in a job (part-time) or during university.

Interview Advice:

Interview advice is similar to application advice- make sure everything you say can be related back to a real life example. If they ask you a question, answer it and say what you WOULD do in the situation, then follow up with a "I have experienced a similar situation in group work in university when I...."

For the aptitude tests, the biggest challenge is time. So make sure you practise as many examples as you can online before the actual tests.

Application Advice:

The application process is quite lengthy, but stick with it. What you're going to get from this role, should you be successful will be well worth it. The process may have changed since I applied, but when I applied there was an online application to fill in, then a telephone interview, then psychometric testing and then finally an assessment centre.

Business Process Analyst, at DCC plc

Application Advice:

To be a good fit for the scheme you need to be quite flexible and have good adaptability skills to be able to cope with relocating every 8 months. Make sure you show good communication/people skills and drive for results.

Interview Advice:

The recruitment process is similar to other graduate schemes. Prepare for numerical, verbal and logical tests and prepare for a competency based interview. At the assessment centre you'll also have to take part in a group exercise and do a presentation which you'll be able to prepare in advance.

Application Advice:

They are looking for real life examples where you have shown leadership, teamwork, quality etc. so make sure you back up any claims you make.

Interview Advice:

Relax, they don't try to catch you out. The interview feels almost like an informal chat about you and your experiences. The presentation and group exercise are a bit more formal so it is important to come across confident with belief in yourself.

Pricing Manager, at DCC plc
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Make sure you are up for a challenge, and that you are willing to be independent. There is not a lot of hand-holding, at least not in my experience, which is good but not for everyone. Some people would probably prefer a softer entry into work life, and if so, then this is not for them.

Interview Advice:

The interviews very much focused on your personal competencies, and how you have applied these in the real world. The best advice I could give would be, make a list of all your strengths, find an example of how you have demonstrated them in real life, and another that shows how you would then apply that within the workplace theoretically.

Candidate will most likely be rewarded for showing that questions have been thought about, and that considered, practical responses are given.

Application Advice:

Make sure to research DCC and how it operates. It's quite a unique company as it has a strong presence across several divisions rather than just one! Also make sure that you understand how the graduate programme works (3 rotations in 3 different companies) and why you see this as an opportunity for you to learn from and contribute to DCC as an organisation.

Interview Advice:

Avoid making vague statements during your interview - make sure to have solid examples of times that you displayed particular skills.
