    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Financial Times (London, England) in April 2015.

    Interview

    First was telephone screening just to tell about your background and why you want that job and what you know about FT.
    Then there was face to face. First pair programming with one person.
    Then answering questions with another two (microservices, REST questions, headers for certain type retrieval)
    Finally, it was with manager for team fit and final offer.

    In the end they offered 8k less of what was told from Agency. It seems it is a common practice in there. Waste of time.
