What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
The interviews and your potential future line management are interested in you being well rounded, having both technical skills as well as leadership and communication skills. It is more than simply having a good grade, it's about what you can prove that you have done that highlights your ability to work as a team, to communicate to your leaders and others your work and your ability to adapt and overcome rapidly changing situations.
Do you have any interview tips?
I was asked the basics (why you want to work here etc.) but was also asked technical "out of the box" questions, questions which required application of the physics that I had learnt to find solutions to the questions. It wasn't the solution they were looking for and more about the process that I took to reach my answer.
