    I have been working at Version 1 part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was part of an acquisition, but I’ve never looked back. Definitely a workplace and company that I would, and have, recommended.

    Very professional and is a highly supportive company to employees. They really understand that people are essential as well as the cost base and the customers.

    Core values are genuinely displayed and lived through all levels of the company.

    Transparency from higher management with direct access to the CEO etc.

    Family like environment at the office.

    Managers provide the right level of support and encouragement to take on new challenges. Colleagues pull together and are happy to help.

    Quarterly reviews – sounds onerous but they really work and provide a two way base for feedback, job satisfaction and development leading to progression.

    Everyone is approachable and easy to deal with.

    I think you would have to go a long way to find a better company to work for.

    Cons

    None unless you are work shy or want to coast.

    Applications Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Version 1 (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process at Version 1 was professional but had a very relaxed feel throughout which really put me at ease. Dealing with the recruitment specialist via email was straightforward and the interviews were discussions about my my current skill-set and my aspirations rather than trying to catch me out with awkward questions. Version 1 have core values which are guidelines to make the company a great place to work and also to ensure that they ensure their customers are satisfied, and it is clear even from the application process that everyone follows these values.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about a time when someone tried to redesign or better a solution I designed, this is something that has no doubt happened in the past but it was not a question I was prepared for and therefore as not able to provide any real answer.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    the negotiation phase was very straightforward, I was asked about my notice period and salary expectations, Version 1 fully understood that I may have had to work 3 months notice and made me a generous salary offer within the range I asked for. I also told the recruitment team about holiday days I needed this year and next year and they responded quickly to tell me it wasn't a problem.
