How to prepare for your HGV interview

How to prepare for your HGV interview

As driving jobs are manual, it can be difficult to know how to prepare for the interview and this is where many candidates make a mistake. It is true to say that driving jobs in South East England are mainly about experience but there are also several other qualities that an employer will be looking for before they decide to take you on.

If you have secured an interview for a driving job, well done! It is now time to make sure you are suitably prepared, so you get the job. Smart attire You may be thinking that just because it is a driving job, you don’t need to wear smart attire, but this is definitely not the case. No matter what type of job you are applying for, you should always aim to impress and this means a shirt, trousers and a smart jacket. If you turn up in jeans and a top, it will just look like you haven’t bothered to make an effort, so how professional will you be about your new job?

Good communication Although driving jobs are predominantly solo professions, you will still have to be able to communicate with people, especially in the case of delivery driver jobs and lorry driver jobs. You are representing the business and as such, the interviewer will want to ensure you can communicate well with customers. You should ensure you maintain eye contact throughout the interview and don’t forget to smile and show enthusiasm. Research Make sure you know enough about the company, even if it is just a temporary assignment. They may or may not ask this (or care if you know!), but it is better to be over prepared than under prepared. Take a look at the company website and find out what they do, where they are located and who their competitors are. If there is any recent news about them, it will be sure to impress the interviewer if you know this. Experience Talk about any relevant experience you have which will be useful for the job. This will include any driving jobs and customer service you have provided. You will be expected to hold valid licenses too, particularly if you are moving from class 1 driver jobs to class 2 driver jobs.
