Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at AOL in April 2014.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview with a senior software engineer and didn't go any further. I answered everything correctly and in depth. I didn't remember exactly the MVC pattern's components though and in my feedback that was the reason of the rejection along with bad communication skills. They said I was asking the interviewer to repeat his questions (which never happened) and that suggests bad communication skills.

Interview Question – Apparently the MVC pattern is very important for a Software Engineer, even for a "non-Web" role.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at AOL.

Interview Details – two interviews, approachable interview process, but cultural fit is a weird one. asked a mixture of technical and general questions. some questions were repeats. they do take their time and are not always responsive to feedback. maybe, they were looking for a particular look of a candidate. be prepared for any sort of questions.

Service Delivery Interview

Service Delivery
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at AOL.

Interview Details – Interviewed for a role with AOL, got on extremely well with the very nervous hiring manager until the interview was rudely interrupted by his line manager who unbalanced the whole experience for both of us.

Emailed HR with my feedback as is customary with many American companies. Never heard anything from HR after being told I would do straight away by the hiring manager. Waited a few more days and emailed HR again, still nothing, exceptionally rude to hear nothing back after taking the time, effort and expense to attend for interview.

I never heard anything back.

I now have a very bad perception of this company which has quite frankly lost it's way, after reading quite damning things about AOLs future I now feel that I have had a lucky escape!
