Difficult Interview

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Netbuilder (London, England, England) in Oct 2020

Interview

Numerical testing uses simple math to answer financial and job-related questions. However, don't be deceived because the speed at which these questions are meant to be answered is very quick. You will have less than 1 minute a question and depending on the company they will give you anywhere between 10 - 20 questions.

Interview

I got three stages in. I had a physical 1:1 interview with the senior consultant, followed by a take-home programming test and subsequent phone interview covering the test and some more about the working environment with a software engineer. There was a fourth stage but I never found out what that was.

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Netbuilder (Manchester, England, England) in Oct 2015

Interview

Initial phone interview was fairly straight forward asking about your commitments and your basic knowledge of the programming knowledge, and also asked about my relevant modules. Once that done I was told to attend the assessment centre which was based in Manchester and I live in London (PS they didn't pay for travel). Once arriving we were in a group of 5 very small group (was surprised) and we were asked to go into computer lab sort of environment where the presentation on how "good" their company is and all. This person who was presenting seemed like he just wanted to get and over and done with attitude through out the day. He also explained why the group is small compare to usual size it's due to the urgent need of consultant and they sort of realised at the last minute. He than explained it wouldn't be as long as usual assessment day so he told us he will allocate each one of us to one of the staff for the interview stage so we all go together and come back together since the group is very small. He gave a task to be completed in an hour or so about something related in the news for the past 14 days and come up with a solution. Decide yourself who will be the project lead and all, and when the time comes I would like to see website, and a presentation (bit like Apprentice program style). During the task I don't think anybody was watching us at all we were left alone to work with and every now and then there was this lady warned us about the time we left to finish the task. The guy came to his desk 10 minutes before the deadline, and minding his own business in his laptop didn't say a word even past the deadline. We asked "who calls for it to be ready?" and he immediately responded with "you should've told us this couple of minutes ago when your times up". we got up nervously, and presented what we could do in the small time given a small group our work was not fantastic but after all the presentation and questions, we were just simply told "thanks for your hard word and bye" sounded rather sarcastic manner in my opinion anyway.

Interview

First had a telephone interview, then went onto an assessment day which also had a one on one interview. The phone interview had some standard questions concerning OOP (Object-Orientated Programming) but nothing overly difficult to answer if you do some research beforehand. The assessment day was a lot of fun! Very quirky tasks to do and very fun to carry out. The one on one interview is just the standard review with some OOP questions thrown in. Again, nothing too difficult.

A short phone interview followed by an assessment day in the company office with 17 other applicants.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Netbuilder (London, England, England) in Jul 2015

Interview

Assessment day. Around 20 people attended, and they assigned us 19 tasks. A bit chaotic, probably intentional to see how we do in that type of situation. they called out candidates for interview throughout the day for interview. Interview itself were easy. There was a mix of people from Computer Science background, Physics, Engineering... etc. So for some it would be harder to stand out. I did not get the offer in the end, but my advice would be on the day: be involved! Don't be in the background and make yourself present and memorable. Also know the the principles of Java for the interview. Its important.

Interview Questions
  • What does the `static` keyword mean in Java? What's special about primitives in Java? In addition, normal question about how I got into I.T. from Engineering.
