    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sky (London, England) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Direct approach from a recruiter by email with a telephone interview arranged the following week. Then I received a call back the afternoon of the interview inviting me to Sky HQ at Osterley for a Face to Face, skills based interview.

    Throughout the process I was assured that my lack of technical skills would not be a barrier for the role as they were looking for a non-technical candidate, only to be told in my interview feedback that I did not have the technical background required for the role.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sky (London, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    They had a list of questions they asked and stuck to it pretty rigidly, it didn’t really allow for much conversation flow or even offer a chance to go into detail on things, and I feel like the questions didn’t allow for a chance demonstrate why you want the job or like the company.

    Graduate Developer Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sky (London, England) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Firstly we where tasked on the assessment day to create a cluster computer. The instructions they provided was for old equipment so didn't work with the new equipment they provided. Because of this we couldn't complete the tasks. However we got close as on many occasions I had to fix the problems. Firstly the password given on the image was incorrect. I fixed this by going into bash and changing the password. Secondly no DHCP so I sorted the IP addresses. Thirdly the example files where forgotten about. The assessor did not believe me so I had to be course with him to realise. By the time we fixed all the issues which I mainly fixed it was time up. Very disappointed in them as we worked really hard and it was because of their unprofessionalism we did not complete it. Very unfair assessment.

    Field Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sky (London, England) in May 2018.

    Interview

    I’ve been on the telephone interview but didn’t feel comfortable with the person, she was unprofessional, I think she’s new to her jobs, needs more training, supervised.
    I did my homework.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any criminal convictions?
      My answer was is it spent or unspent? having my Disclosure and Barring Service came through recently but I was asked again am I sure, she went saying people apply with convictions but later get rejected, at this point I thought I wasn’t getting anywhere with this lady, she clearly levelled me as a criminal.
      Interview lasted about 30 minutes, having answered the questions as professionally as I could I even stop talking for her to type but didn’t get asked if I want to add anything else to my answers, it seems like it the interview was fast tracked.   Answer Question

    Hi there. Sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience and you felt as though your interview was let down by the assessor. Please be aware I have fed this back to the business area to ensure this is looked in to.
