    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Utrecht (Netherlands)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bol.com (Utrecht (Netherlands)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I completed a test task at home, a game and was invited to a technical interview. There we discussed my solution. The people were friendly and I felt comfortable. We used Skype.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly the questions were why I used relatively old technologies (spring mvc + jsp) and not those that boll.com would like to see(rest + angular). Although in the requirements was clearly written, use the technologies that you consider necessary.   Answer Question
