    Front End Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mitcham, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at iwoca (Mitcham, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Quite smooth at first with the usual telephone interview and technical test. The final interview was quite a lengthy one and quite confusing consisting of nearly 4 hours with two sets of developers asking the same questions so you end up saying the same stuff to the two sets of developers.

    First round of final stage interviews was ok talking about how you found the technical test and why you made the decisions you did. They asked me to make a change to the functionality on the spot which kind of takes you out of the interview mindset and straight into problem solving, logical and conceptual thinking mindset straight away.

    The second round of final stage interviews was a culture fit and competency based interview which seemed a little over the top for a mid weight front end developer role. A white board session included where broads questions are thrown at you to see how you handle them and a deep dive into your experience and personal choices of technology and why on certain projects.

    At the end it seemed very unorganised because there was no feedback, so I guess I wasn’t a good culture fit.
