    Contract Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cheltenham, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ultra Electronics (Cheltenham, England).

    Interview

    Paper tests followed immediately by panel interview. Never felt I had a chance. Unenthusiastic and occasionally rude interview panel; one interviewer left after five minutes. Antsy and leading questions. I don't mind Mr Nice & Mr Nasty but I got Mesrs Want-to-be-Somewhere-Else. If you get a 730AM slot, suspect that they have already got somebody for the job and don't waste your time.
