Solutions Architect Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Capita in April 2014.
Interview Details – In-house recruitment consult talked me through the role (although this wasn't entirely accurate in its scope) followed by telephone interview. This led to a face-to-face interview with the group director at the Leeds offices. Overall they seemed friendly and welcoming but received little feedback afterwards.
Interview Question – I was asked to explain costing methods for a specific soluition View Answer
Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Capita in March 2012.
Interview Details – A quick 30 minutes telephone interview, followed by a 1 1/2 hour face to face interview and a 30 mins technical test which was testing me on my SQL and VB.net / C# programming along with my problem solving skills.
Interview Question – Most questions were the usual; tell me a time when .... etc...
The most challenging part was sitting down with a senior and running through a SQL test and a VB.Net test whilst he took some notes. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Always ask for more than initially given as they have a wide bracket and always offer the lowest.
Business Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Capita in March 2009.
Interview Details – There were three interviews, the first with the departmental manager and two potential colleagues, the second with the manager and a Human Resources representative. The third interview was with the deputy director and some minions. Incredibly I was asked on the second interview where I expected to see myself in five years.
Interview Question – 'Where do you see yourself in five years'. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Not much wriggle room, they weren't very flexible.
