Difficult Interview

Interview

They pulled a no-show TWICE on my phone screen. They blatantly don't have it together over there. They asked me questions about Angular and TypeScript despite knowing I had no experience with either (but a willingness to learn).

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilmslow, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Waters (Wilmslow, England).

    Interview

    One of my favorite interviews, good questions (hard but not stupid, things like: what was the most difficult bug you ever fixed)

    A well rounded technical test, challenging but the questions where things that anyone who calls themselves a C++ engineer (and most engineers in general) should know.

    Also everyone involved (I got passed around a little) was very nice and very much "not in interviewer mode" by which, they were open and relaxed and I felt like I would enjoy working with these people because I could picture them being like this during a brew etc.

    I went through a 3rd party recruiter initially and he was excellent, sadly I only remember his first name "Alex".

    Negotiation

    Funny, they were offering a lot more then my current job anyway, but due to a bureaucratic reason they had to ring me back and offer me more, can't really get better then that!

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Waters in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was approached on linked in by waters talent acquisition department. Asking if I would be interested in a senior software engineer role..

    I arrange a call for the following Monday, upon going to re-check the job post online to prep for the call. The post was no longer online with the job description, so I contacted the person who was going to call me, who said that the post had just been filled, which is why it was taken down.

    I was then sent an equivalent post description.. when looking closer this was for a software engineer instead of a senior. I thought nothing of it and thought I would bring it up on the call, while learning more about the opportunity.

    However on the arranged day to be called, Waters were a now show to the call, with no apologies for not calling, and no attempt to re-arrange.
