    Interview

    I was called up and asked for a detailed Skype interview. They were very specific about what they needed and asked directly. The interview was easy and not time taking although they needed someone more experienced.

    Interview

    Interviewed for two roles in the company on separate occasions. Both times there was no follow up one way or the other and didn't get feedback. Felt both interviews were a waste of my time.

    Mid Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at hVIVO (London, England) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied last year. The response was very quick - certainly within the week. A two staged process with the initial screening questions and confirmation of CV details and general availability.

    Again the follow up was within a week to arrange a face to face interview with the hiring manager and a senior HR recruitment manager. Very friendly both and they took turns in asking questions, found the technical questions pretty easy but the questions from the HR guy whilst friendly were very deep and searching. Did feel as though I was being professionally interviewed!

    Would say to be aware of the friendly conversation on the way out! It is still very much part of the interview process and done very well. That said I found myself really wanting to get the role both of them were very enthusiastic about the company and role.

    Interview Questions

    • What should I take away from this conversation when speaking to the hiring manager?

      A lot of the questions are around specific experiences and will ask follow ups; when? Where? Who were you working with? What was the final outcome?

      Would you want to change the final outcome? And then the usual who, what, why, when questions.

      One of the first questions focused a lot on about my journey to the interview - which tube, how long did it take, etc. Not sure why...   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at hVIVO (London, England) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Ice cold HR interview, stale application form, not interactive, not competency based, not modern, not welcoming, not encouraging, not inspiring or excitement inducing, off putting, miserable experience. Had I not of been desperate to support my family I would have run a mile and now I work there, I know I made a correct first impression.
