Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Very Group (London, England, England)

Interview

It was three stages. First stage was the acquisition team, it's just to get to know you. Second stage is with the hiring manager, the aim is to know whether you're a fit to the company's culture. The final stage, with the hiring manager again and a senior Software engineer, was about the technical aspect of the job. The process was smooth and quick. The guys from the acquisition team will accompany you in every step which was really good

I applied online. I interviewed at The Very Group (London, England, England) in Oct 2020

Interview

Had a virtual interview using MS Teams. It started off well, did a mock call which was fine and a great idea to ensure you have customer service experience. Just be aware of the interview questioning as they ask competence based questions, therefore you will need to brush up on your S.T.A.R ( Situation, Task, Action, Result) technique. I understand that this can take people off guard when not knowing they will use this method. The problem with competency based questioning in my option is that it is floured. There's plenty of material online which you can find to prep you for this, even provide you with ways of how to answer competency based questions. All you'd need to do is to make notes of your answers.
