Atos Interview

This is a competency based interview and is similar to the Atos telephone interview but is administered by a senior member of Atos as opposed to a hired recruiter. This Atos interview is between 45 minutes and one hour in length. Listed below are some popular Atos interview questions that are asked at the assessment centre:

  • Describe a time when you had to make a difficult decision even though you didn't have all the necessary facts.
  • Tell me about a time when you had to retract on your original decision due to new evidence.
  • Tell me about a time when you managed to convince someone to change their position.
  • Do you think you can make an impact at Atos?

The ideal preparation for questions like this is to prepare answers in advance, using examples of your past experience to illustrate your skills. Once you have gathered all your answers, the best thing you can do is take a mock interview with an expert to help you identify areas for improvement. As well as this, make sure you have read up on the subject and department you have applied for in order that you can ask relevant questions. Asking questions cannot be stressed enough as it shows not only that you care about the business but also that you want to constantly learn.

Presentation

Ahead of the assessment centre you will be given a topic to prepare a short five to ten minute presentation. Atos usually ask you to present a project or significant piece of work that you have done. You are given a flip board with large pieces of paper to help you prepare for this presentation on the day. It is recommended that you use the STAR method for presenting your work as this is the most concise format available. Remember to keep eye contact with the two assessors during your presentation. This not only helps for the actual task you are doing now but also with the Atos interview as this will be with the same two assessors.

Case Study and Group Exercise

For the group exercise you will be given 10 minutes to read through a short case study. You will be provided with a number of different things to discuss as a group and be given 30 minutes to do so.
