    Java Developer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at OpenBet (Chiswick, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Approached by their HR. Initially had a technical telephone interview which was quite easy.
     Invited to on-site interview which was a three hour long event with different groups of technical and HR people in succession. This followed up on topics in the telephone interview with more detail. some of the questions were quite technical and not in my area. It was quite tough swapping between questions from different people on skills .
    Quite a lot of technical test questions on the range of language and systems being used in the company .
    In the middle they then said were looking to mostly work in a new language not previously mentioned and not in my CV. Decision was that I was not technical enough for their demanding requirements, I told them that at the start so I didn't get to the formal 2nd interview.

    Useless coding challenge as you could pick any language to work on but then had to use tcl for the job. There was 5 questions that did not make much sense.
    Phone interview followed where I was asked basic development and web questions
    Final interview was a 2 hour Skype call. It could have certainly been condensed down to an hour

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at OpenBet (London, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Hackerrank tests: hard but fair.
    Phone interview: hard but fair
    Face to face: hard, but mainly unfair.

    Asked to whiteboard design a system in an area I haven't worked in for over 10 years.

    The "specialist knowledge" trick interview question has morphed into the "specialist algorithm" trick question, fine for Hackerrank types I suppose. When I asked if they used it, I got the woolly/fudge reply that means "no we don't, but I don't want to admit it".

    One reason for rejection was that I didn't know technology X, well I'd never claimed to know it, and it's not explicitly mentioned in the job description. So they need to read CVs properly and write better job descriptions. This is really unfair, as interviewees can do absolutely nothing about it.

    I've come across this company in the past when dealing with a piece of software they wrote for a particular company. Let's just say that they should have done things been better then, as they should do now.

    Interview

    I have been contacted from their internal recruiter. It all started with a phone interview where I talked about myself. Then I had to complete in 1 hour a skill test through an online platform. About 5 excercises of problem solving in my favorite programming language. Despite I passed the test they told me that my profile was not they were looking for.
