    Software Developer 0 Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Allstate Northern Ireland in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    I requested an application pack online sometime in July, gave the test and interview in August and started work by the end of September. I applied for an entry level role for graduates with 1 year or less experience in software development. I received the form and details and also a practice leaflet for "Information Technology Test Series" produced by SHL Group www.shl.com. the test was basically verbal reasoning, number series, computer checking, syntax checking, diagramming and diagrammatic reasoning. There was also a test of spatial reasoning in the leaflet but not on the test.
    At that time, there were vacancies for both IT and non IT graduates. There is absolutely no difference except in pay. I got a phone call saying that I had passed the test and requesting me to appear for the inteview. Since I lived in London, they said it would be okay to have a phone interview. My phone interview had basically one person from HR and one IT person. It was a general interview and they were just asking about situations in life where I had displayed certain skills - eg. leadership skills or teamwork etc. The only technical question was to describe the SDLC (software development life cycle).

    Negotiation Details
    Well there was no negotiation as such. I got a letter offering me 18K which is pretty crap but most graduates seem to get something in the range of 20 to 22 K in the mainland and I decided to accept as it was just an entry level role. I understand that non IT graduates start at 14k during the training phase, 16k in the first year, 17k in the second year, and then 18k at the end of 2 years. I did ask if they would pay for my relocation from London but was told that would not be possible. They did offer to assist me in finding accommodation though.
