    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Cambridge, East of England, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cambridge, East of England, England
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Accelrys.

    Interview Details

    1st stage - phone interview by boss-to-be
    2nd stage - 3-4 hour face to face interview by the following:
    HR: welcome and close with box-ticking questions and questionnaire
    Technical team members: longest part of the interview
    Boss-to-be: a mix of technical and general
    Boss of boss-to-be: general

    Most of the development work requires the use of a proprietary software, that's why all the candidates are shown this, which is good as the candidates know what they are getting into.

    There wasn't any negotiation - they offered the top of my requested range (I wish I asked for more!)
