Interview

1st was a 15 min call with a few standards questions regarding the role. 2nd was a group zoom assessment day which consisted off they get to see how you worked in a team, then an individual assessment pointing out faults in an email and then a 1-1 interview. Whole experience was really good. Don’t be disheartened if you don’t get the offer as they give feedback and tell you about good and bad points which was really helpful. They also give you the opportunity to apply for potential other roles within the company. I was fortunate to get the offer after a misfortune from someone else.

1) "Face-to-Face" interview ( Around 1 hour) I did my "face-to-face" interview through Zoom due to the COVID-19. The interviewers were bright and cut-to-the-chase professional, they have given in-depth details about the company also shared their insight into the betting industry. 2) Take-home Task ( A weekend ) I received a take-home design test to demonstrate my skills. The design task was deep enough to show my strengths. 3) Second Interview( Around 1 hour) The second interview was mainly focused on explaining my design rationale, approach, and workflow with developers. I had enough time to ask them the questions at the end. Within a week, I received an offer. All in all, the whole experience was pleasant.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming in Sep 2020

Interview

I was 1st contacted on the phone (phone screen) by one of the Talent Delivery Partners at SBG who expressed their interest in me after submitting my online application. They had asked me some initial questions such as: “Why do you want to work at SBG?” and “Why do you want to work as a Research Analyst?”. They then invited me on to a 2nd stage interview (1:1) where it consisted of an informal 30 minute interview with the hiring manager (Research Manager). The interview was very open and honest. After the interview, I was also provided the chance to ask any questions I had. The hiring manager was very clear in regard to the next stages. The next stage consisted of a research analysis task; where successful candidates were provided with a dataset to analyse and present (10-15mins) their key findings for the next interview. The 2nd and final interview (panel) was between myself, the hiring manager and research manager. The interview lasted for 1.5 hours, with 30mins dedicated to the task (including QnA), 45mins for competency style questions and then 15mins of my questions. The Talent Delivery Partner is pretty much like your side-kick throughout the process. Although this may not always be the case, the Talent Delivery Partner contacted me on the same day, 5-6 hours after the interview to inform me that they’re offering me the job. The Talent Delivery Partner gave me a complete explanation of the offer and the package/benefits involved.
