Average Interview
Application

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

Interview

This was a four stage process. First up a 45-minute screener with the recruiter, then an hour-long behavioural examples interview with a peer, then an hour-long case study review with 4 people (UX research lead, senior product designer, engineering team lead and product manager). The final stage was a call with the Design Director. The recruiter kept me in the loop all the way through with quick feedback and booking in for next stage. I had good instructions on what to expect and how to prepare. I got rejected after the case study review but was grateful for the feedback from all four panellists. They were spot on in their feedback - I had already come to the same conclusions myself that Transferwise was not the right place for me. I enjoyed the experience of all the stages - the people I met were friendly, interested and well-prepared.

Interview Questions
  • What’s your strategy for how to get started at Transferwise?
    Answer Question
  • How would you get a whole team engaged in research if they weren’t showing an interest?
  • How do you feel when priorities change?

This was back in 2017 before they had changed the interview process. It was fun and conversational before with a lot of random questions. Now I believe they are doing values based interviewing.

Difficult Interview
Application

I interviewed at Wise in May 2021

Interview

The first interview was via HireVue and it was quite complicated. After that, it was via Zoom, both interviewers were nice and kind however they seemed inexperienced. They might tell you it is a more like a conversation rather than an interview but, for me it was a chance to find a good company to work and support myself.

Interview Questions
  • Behavioral questions on timelines, how you would integrate in an ambiguous environment, questions about payments and if you are familiar with them.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wise (London, England, England) in Apr 2021

Interview

I got referred to the role by a friend and soon after got an email requesting for my availability and expressing their interest. The 1st interview was scheduled for 2 weeks after that first email, and the second interview happened another two weeks from the 1st one. There would have been a final and 3rd interview. The process itself was great and I really enjoyed meeting the people I interviewed with. It was all very friendly and professional, even to let me know I wasn't moving forward. All in all, a great experience and I would definitely apply again!

I applied online. I interviewed at Wise (Budapest) in Apr 2021

Interview

Online interview with prerecorded questions. HireVue system is not very reliable. In the middle of the interview, the system crashed and my interview was submitted with unanswered questions. I emailed the recruitment team about the issue, also attached the screenshots but they never responded to my emails. After a week, I received an automated rejection email. Really negative experience.

Interview Questions
