    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cogent in June 2012.

    Interview

    I emailed HR my CV and the got back to me in a couple of weeks. They set up an interview with the two line managers i would work under who asked a few background questions. I moved on to the next stage which was a similar interview with the department head.

    Interview Questions

    • n/a - it was all straight forward - questions about experience, background, examples, personal qualities.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't one - you would just find out at the end of the process when you got offered the job. I suggest being up front about pay so you dont waste your time going through the whole process.
