    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Very Group (United Kingdom)


    A coding task was set in SQL using codility. This was to see "how I think" and was discussed briefly in the interview. Then questions on how I fit into the company and its values.

    Trusted: You are asked to make an important decision about the next steps of a given project. How would you approach this to ensure you make the right decision? Ambitious: What would you most like to be recognised for by your team? What does success look like for you? What strategies have you developed to support this ambition? Proud: How do you envision this role will impact / create value for our customers? How would you describe the typical Very customer? Do you have any ideas about how the customer experience could be improved? Innovative: Tell me about the last time you had to learn something new. How did you go about learning it and what, if any, tools did you employ? Together: Give me an example where you collaborated with individuals or teams outside your business area to deliver a positive outcome.
