All done through a recruiter. They had multiple rounds before meeting with management. I was not asked to meet with management after two rounds. I don’t believe my resume was ever a good fit for what they wanted.

I interviewed at Smart Pension

Interview

Contacted by recruiter and an interview was arranged without any guidance from them. Interviewed with 2 staff members, one of which was asking the questions off the top of his head and clearly didn't prepare for it. If I'm expected to prepare, they should obviously prepare too. After waiting 2 weeks, I followed up with the 'recruiter' and my message was ignored so still haven't heard anything at the end of the 3rd week. Dodged a bullet with all of them.

Firstly, I was given a technical assignment which should been done in less than 3 hours. In the next stage, I was interviewed in two different meetings. The first one was technical, refactoring and extending submitted assignment. The second one was cultural which almost went through my experiences in different regular or tough situations in working places.

Interview

Take home tech test to build an app. I had to build a silly star wars top trumps game - it was very demeaning. asked use react, typescript, styled components, apollo graphql, etc,etc. I did not even get thanks for spending time for it. Normally I would charge day rate for a work like this. No proper feedback either.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Smart Pension (London, England, England) in Feb 2021

Interview

It was a great interview process with Smart Pension. The interview lasted 4+ weeks. The interview process consisted of three stages: Stage 1: Initial screening with Smart Pension's internal recruiter (scheduled for 30 minutes but lasted 1 hour). The recruiter did a great job explaining the details and responsibilities of the role, and he also gave a lot of in-depth information about all about the opportunities and challenges ahead for the company. All my questions were answered, and this interview was more of a motivation and background-type screening. Stage 2: Meeting with two senior team members from the same department (1 hour). Here I got to meet two senior members who gave further in-depth information about the role, the clients I would be working with, the types of projects I would manage etc. This was more of a culture-fit interview, where the senior memebers asked questions about how I would manage clients in event-based scenarios, what I like to do in my free time, etc. Stage 3: Final stage meeting with two directors/heads of departments (1 hour). This was more of a technical interview, where I was asked in-depth questions about how I would manage the projects in various event-based scenarios, questions about Agile vs Waterfall methodologies, lots of questions about my background with examples, etc. Overall, all the interviews were conducted in a very professional and kind manner. It was great meeting the various team members, as everyone was very enthusiastic about meeting you and learning about your skills and experience. Unfortunately the position was offered to someone with more pension-experience so I accepted another offer, however I can recommend Smart Pension based on how the interview process went.

Interview Questions
  • If you got handed a brand new project, what types of documentation would you create? Can you create a project plan when the project is following an Agile methodology? How would you manage a client who was upset about something going wrong on a project? Can you give examples of projects that went badly or that were challenging? Why do you want to work for Smart Pension? etc.

Interview

Got to the final stage interview with smart pension which went well. Was told that I would hear back within a week. Weeks went by and nothing, even after chasing multiple times 3 months later and have not even had a courtesy 30 second call. Sadly this is becoming common but I don’t think this is acceptable after at a final stage interview.
