    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at AO (Manchester, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I was greeted in receiption, and shown around on the way to a meeting room on the 6th floor, where we were joined by another staff member of AO. Both were friendly, and polite throughout. Firstly we talked a little about AO, and the role I was applying for. Then we went into depth about my work history, and about me as an individual. Likes, dislikes, passions and pass-times. We then had a quick session of pair programming a code-kata (Potter books) which allowed me to share a lot of insights into my thought patterns and reasonings. Lastly we have a questions and answers session from both my point of view, and that of AO's. I was thanked for attending, and was told of the next steps, and that I would be contacted by my agent in the next day or so.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AO (Bolton, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The first stage was a Telephone interview, which gave a great impression of the company. The questions were typical of this type of interview, i.e. wanting to know more about my experience and my personality. It was clear very that culture is very important to AO from early on. The next stage was to complete a piece of work from a brief, plenty of time was provided to complete this and if i had a question, the recruiter was always on hand to help. Once through to the next stage i was asked to design and deliver a 20 minute session which was delivered to a positive and engaging group, before a final face to face interview with the Head of Training. This was more of a getting to know me as a person conversation and made me feel very comfortable. At each stage I was kept well informed and contacted when promised and promptly. The whole interview process was a positive experience and gave a great impression on what it will be like to work there.
