    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Auto Trader UK (Portugal) in Oct 2020


    Very well conducted interview process.
    First stage with HR to know about your motivation, expectation, etc.
    Second stage is a live pair programming interview followed by a feedback with software engineers and HR.
    After that, HR will tell you in private, without the software engineers, wether you are going to proceed to the next step or not, which is done on the same day, after a break for lunch time.
    On the next stage, they will evaluate how you fit with company values and will also ask some technical questions.

    Pair programming exercise with TDD.
