    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sky (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    There were three main rounds once I'd passed an initial telephone interview with HR: 1. Competency Interview. Standard competency questions to assess such things as how stakeholders are managed, what sort of a PM I am, level of experience, how I dealt with challenges etc. This was to the Programme Manager and was supposed to include the Director he worked for but he couldn't make it. 2. Presentation: gave a presentation on how I would manage a situation where I had to give the bad news to Senior Management that I'm about to miss a money earning milestone. What would the actions, messages and processes I would go through. This was to the Programme Manager. 3. Cultural Fit: How I would fit into the team and organisation. This was to the Programme Manager and was supposed to include the Director he worked for but he couldn't make it.

    This was a 30 minute telephone interview after succeeding in the online mathematical test.

    Customer Service Team Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sky (London, England (UK)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Thorough and intense interview and screening process. First step was a 40 minute phone screening, followed by a group assessment on site which involved group discussion and a simulated 1 to 1 with an employee. At the third stage this involved a presentation to the management team and a fourth stage 1 to 1 interview. The whole process was well-managed and fairly seemless.

    Interview Questions

    • The one to one with an upset staff member was the most difficult with tonnes of information and only 30 mins to prepare.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Was offered another role.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sky (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Sky Engineering Academy I applied online, and received further instructions a week later. I had to do a programming task home and had a week to complete it. Not the hardest thing I've done by far, but because I tried to ace it, it took me an unexpected amount of time (several afternoons). After this, I was appointed for a phone interview, really short, they just wanted to confirm my personal data and to make sure I understood the conditions of the position. I was then scheduled for an assessment day, in which I was required to work with other candidates over the day. We would have people looking at what we were doing for the whole duration, but they were friendly and even offered help at times. The tasks we were asked to do collectively were really fun, with even robots involved! The atmosphere was really friendly the whole time, I can't stress this enough. There was also a small 1:1 interview in which they asked the usual personal questions (what is your worst defect etc...). At the end of the day, they guided us through their campus and installations and let us talk with current employees to ask anything we wanted without anyone overlooking what questions we were asking. Overall I couldn't be more impressed.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any hard questions, some of the candidates were not computer scientists and had little experience as programmers, although they had impressive backgrounds from top universities. They were much more interested in our attitude than our skills.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was made clear since beginning, didn't negotiate.
