    I have been working at dunnhumby full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ambitious company, great culture, good community, smart people, good tech stack, everyone is helpful, good work/life balance, flexible hours, early finish Fridays - all in all, a decent place to work

    Cons

    For people in tech, there is no official training offered, it's very much you learn on the job, which is good (and often better) in many ways, but to compliment that by offering proper training would be highly useful and effective. Allowing employees a training budget and some say over how to spend it would be beneficial. The company is growing and changing a lot, which means sometimes it can feel unstable and uncertain, but I suppose that is inevitable for a company trying to grow.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at dunnhumby (Manchester, England) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Initial phone conversation was good although rather odd and somewhat brief. Basically just an informal chat.

    Second stage of the interview was a coding test. They allowed me 2 hours to complete it. I digested the spec and asked any questions in the first 20-25 minutes.

    They ask you to bring in your own laptop so you’re familiar with the coding environment. Thing is, they didn’t ask me to check in any of my working out and I was writing TDD (kind of useless if you’re going to leave me alone in a room for 2 hours).

    I had my time extended to 3 hours as I’d used a BigDecimal to represent floats causing rounding issues. When you’re doing TDD as it takes so long to do things properly (they preferred TDD - apparently) any time lost in 2 hours will kill you....

    They came in 10 minutes from the end, I was mid-refactor to get to ideal solution so unable to show all working out and there was insufficient time to demonstrate much at all. The chap who had shown me round was non-technical. I spoke to a technical person all of 5-10 minutes before they also had to leave.

    Also walking round the office everyone was heads down. No collaboration and there was talk of erecting barriers between teams. Not agile in the slightest!

    Did not give a good impression of the sort of culture I want to work in...

    I turned them down before receiving feedback and decided not to proceed to the next stage. Not a company for me thanks - I want to work somewhere that is collaborative and not somewhere you just pick up the next Jira ticket...
