  • Clyde Marine interview

    So I had my interview for Clyde Marine yesterday. I know there must be a million posts about interviews on here but I thought i'd mention a few points that seem to get missed out. Firstly I'd like to say that all the advice here is great but there were one or two questions which I was a little caught out on. The first one was name equipment you would find on the bridge. I panicked a little here but they're not looking for specifics or explanations and when I calmed down I rattled a few off no bother. Another one was dangers to ships. Aside from the obvious ones like collision and sinking they want things like piracy (which I kicked myself for forgetting as I've been in the rnr over 2 years!) like I said though everything on here was a big help and I'm looking forward to my sstg interview next week and Maersk (if I pass the online tests)

    Were there a lot of people there? I take it that you are confident? Did they tell you when they would next be in touch?

      I was the last one of the day so I'm not sure how many they interviewed. It was just one to one. No panel or anything. I feel it went well but it was only my first one. They said I would hear from them within 3 weeks either way

        Oh fair enough, it was in the afternoon wasn't it? Was he/she alright or quite formal? Good luck anyway mate!

          Hi folks,
          I think I can answer a few of your questions... jj-1994, I made the same mistake you made, when it came to dangers on-board! However, they are not wanting you to answer everything perfectly. When it comes to replies, I had my interview on a Friday, and they got back to me with an offer letter on the Wednesday, so im guessing you will hear from them soon. As for your question saltydog, (If you are going to the one in the Glasgow office), the interview is 45 min long, and all the questions are marked on a scale. I cannot remember my interviewers name, but he seemed like a really nice guy, quite professional (suit), and will put you at ease.

          Hope this is of some help to you both!
          Good luck with your replies

            Thanks for your reply. I am going for the one in their Southampton office. Did the interview seem to drag or was it ok? Well done on passing the interview, what happens next?

              Yeah mine was 45 mins aswell. It is pretty formal but my interviewer was dead nice and even steered me in the right direction on a few of the questions

                Thank you for your information guys

                I have mine on Tuesday so lets see how it goes! I was speaking to my friend who started with Clyde and now does the interviews for Shell. He said that we were quite lucky to
                be offered interviews as they are quite strict.

                  Good luck!
                  I recieved an e-mail after my application a week ago to let me know they would be in contact in due course regarding an interiew... bit nervous - did they make you feel comfortable or was it a little tense?

                      Don't suppose you know what stage Shell recruitment is at do you? I had an email in December saying they were still finalising their recruitment strategy for 2013, but I haven't heard anything since.

                          I had my CMT interview in August (and passed, starting at WMA next week) and I agree with the being caught out a couple of times. I think they just want to see how you do coming up against something unexpected (something I also had in my interview for my current job).

                          First I was asked what kind of shift I'd be expected to work as a cadet, and then as a newly qualified officer which I could answer fine. But then he asked me about the hours a captain would be expected to work and I just completely froze because I thought I'd answered the last one wrong and he was just probing for the right answer. I still don't really know why I froze, and I knew as soon as I got on the train back home that the answer was obviously that on top of his shifts, whenever something requiring his attention came up. Kicked myself all day on that one...
