    I have been working at Worldpay full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely fantastic place to work. Really, really great people across all sites, industry leading opportunities to work on and leaders supportive of good ideas. Inspired CEO creating growth bringing benefits for all.

    Merger with Vantiv bringing great industry experience, collaborative teams and a new set of challenges to look forward to.

    Cons

    Not for the faint hearted, it’s faced paced and demanding but recognises people who go the extra mile to get things done

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on the people to realise the benefits of the merger.

    Graduate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Worldpay (London, England) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied to the Graduate Software Engineer role, though this was not a graduate scheme, it was more like a junior SE role. Which is perfect for me as I prefer this to graduate schemes, each to their own. This doesn't mean they do not do a software engineering graduate scheme, just for any reader not to be mistaken. I imagine the scheme based interview and the interview I undergone would be similar.

    I applied having seen an advert via LinkedIn, this was a cv type application that led to a phone call, to make sure the technology stack, the role and myself is right for Worldpay and that Worldpay is right for me before progressing. I liked what I heard and so did the gentlemen I spoke to about myself, and so I had a technical software engineer type test. The test is the same level for a senior developer as it is for a entry level engineer, just different pass benchmarks. 30 questions relating to the technology stack I would be working with, it is more theory based than practical, so brush up on your knowledge of the stack rather than just how to do it.

    I hit the benchmark for my level and this led to an interview, this was handled brilliantly, arranged a date and time that suited both parties, travel expense covered, I received help to all preliminary questions I had via a phonecall where I could go into more detail. Personally, I focused on trying to learn as much about the company I could and the technical questions I failed on the exam (ask for your feedback pdf as you are not automatically sent this), where as on the day I was asked questions based on the technology I said I knew in my cv and in my competency based question/answers. I am doing well at University but I had not been quizzed on object-orientated programming, polymorphism etc for two years, so although I knew the answers they weren't crisp and clear as they use to be, but I showed I knew what I was talking about and backing this up with examples (I brought my apps and websites on my phone/tablet) shows you do not just know the theory but you can also execute. I was given plenty of time to ask my own questions, have a conversation, and really know and understand the role so that I was confident that this role was right for me.

    I passed and got offered the job, I had two standing offers elsewhere with another offer coming in on the same day I got this job offer. The role itself, how well it was explained and the quality of the answer to my questions were great, whether this is credit to my new manager (who interviewed me) or the actual company remains to be seen, but I am very excited to join the Worldpay family and this was the best experience in terms of how I was handled throughout the recruitment process, the HR team should be proud of how they conducted themselves and represented the company, it is one of the reasons for choosing Worldpay over other companies.

    Interview Questions

    • Show me an example (on the whiteboard) of object-orientated programming   1 Answer
    • Follow up questions to my UML, so be prepared for what you say/draw as you will be quizzed. I was asked to show how the UML does polymorphism and what polymorphism is, which led to questions about encapsulation and the difference between a value parameter and a reference parameter value etc.   1 Answer
