Compass Group Interview Stage

Preparation is key to having a successful series of interviews with Compass Group. The first type of interview you will likely need to go through with Compass Group is the phone interview. This type of interview generally lasts from 10-30 minutes and includes questions regarding your availability, salary expectations, and work history.

If the initial phone interview is successful, you will be invited by Compass Group to participate in one or more face-to-face interviews. The face-to-face interviews are either held one-on-one with a member of the management team, or in a group/panel with a mix of managers, HR representatives, and potential co-workers.


Information for the Compass Group Assessment Centre

The Assessment Center allows a more thorough analysis of job candidates’ professional skills than other methods of assessment. In addition to inviting applicants to take tests and have an interview, employers at the Assessment Center ask them to deliver a presentation in front of other candidates, participate in group and simulation exercises, take part in case studies, and do role-playing. All these activities are designed to measure candidates’ various competencies such as leadership, problem-solving, quick thinking, and teamworking, among others. As a rule, the assessment event takes a full day. If it takes two days, and applicants stay at the Assessment Centre overnight, employers pay for their hotel and food. By the end of the event, successful candidates have a final interview with their prospective employers, where a hiring decision is being made.


What Scoring Method Is Used on the Verbal Reasoning Test?

The Verbal Reasoning Test is scored as the majority of pre-employment tests are scored these days. Your score is not counted by the number of the questions you answered correctly. Your Verbal Reasoning Test is rather evaluated relative to the results of other applicants who are applying for positions similar to yours or who are already doing the job for which you applied. Weighing your results against those of other candidates allows employers to choose the best candidates in the existing applicant pool. Yet while employers can only benefit from this scoring method, it may cost applicants a position. The problem is that even if you receive an objectively high score on your Verbal Reasoning Test, such as 92%, for example, it may appear insufficient when compared to scores of other applicants who did better. If other jobs candidates get 93% on the Verbal Reasoning Test, your score will be considered low. Because your success on the pre-employment test hinges so conspicuously on the scores of others, it is essential to outdo them on the exam. Practice will make this possible. Study with our exclusive resources and make other candidates look less successful by comparison.

Can You Explain the SJT Scoring Method?

Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) are different than a standard knowledge test because the answer is in the eyes of the tester. This means there are a variety of ways by which to answer SJT question and to judge the answers. For instance, a test taker can either pick the best or worst options or rate list options according to their perceived effect on the outcome. Grading the answers could either be based on one individual answer or based on a consensus, meaning that test takers may be judged as a group. Sample situational judgement questions can be found here.

What Is the Word Problems Test?

The Word Problems Test is not the test that checks your knowledge of the word. It is also a mathematical test, where mathematical problems are formulated as a short narrative. Usually, you will be told about people who either purchase some goods for a specified amount of money or sell their services for a certain price. You will need to calculate how much money is left to them after a specified period of time. The Word Problems Test measures applicants’ arithmetic and numerical reasoning skills. It also evaluates how well they understand underlying concepts within descriptive problems.

What Score Do I Need on the Pre-employment Test?

Truthfully, there is no hardline score, but rather a consensus of scores based on how the entire group of competing job seekers. Generally, test takers are invited for interviews based on score gap of even 0.5%, so just half a percentage point could be the difference between an interview or walk to the exit.

How Is the Assessment of Job Candidates Conducted at the Assessment Centre

While applicants are participating in various activities, their performance is being estimated by several assessors. Assessors are usually people who work as Human Resources consultants or line managers. They score the performance of job candidates against competency frameworks, giving points for every activity, comparing these points between themselves, and summarizing them by the end of the assessment day. Only after discussing all aspect of applicants’ performance do assessors make a hiring decision.
