    Graduate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pershing (Manchester, England) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I was invited straight in for an in person interview which turned out to be two consecutive interviews. Firstly I had a short technical test, then I chatted with a manager about my experience and the role.
