  1. Platform Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United Kingdom
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Kainos (United Kingdom)

    Interview

    Took around 3 weeks. I first had an interview with an internal recruiter who approached me on linkedin. Once accepted to proceed and agreed on a few things including salary expectation, I've got an email asking for a list of technologies I've had experience with. Then, a 2 stage technical interview.
    The first one was basically a long list of questions about my experience.
    The second one was about a design I did, the ask was to explain my choices, how I dealt with some customer's requirements, and time estimation.
    I've got an offer way lower than the agreed, with a lower package than my current one, and I had to decline. The reaason of my "thumbs-down": even though the internal recruister has updated me at every step, I cannot help but feel frustrated, they had every information about me before going through the whole process, we could have saved a lot of time to both parts if they just read my location, my resume, and my current package.
    Interview

    the usual "how do I deal with web service security", non-functional issues, CI/CD, etc.
