    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ciklum.

    Interview Details

    The longest process ever! Impression of so many interviews is that HR Dep is not professional to decide in 1-2 rows, they needed four or five (I can even remember now so many it was..), few of them panel. Plus one interview with test-case. All interviews took about 6 hours....

    Senior Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kiev (Ukraine)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kiev (Ukraine)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Ciklum in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very fast and convenient for the candidate (especially if one suits position well :) ).
    One may pass very simple Java/Servlet basics test just for the first level filtering. Though some customers takes it as expertise technical interview test. HR can be friendly and allow a candidate to pass this test remotely.

    Depending on results of former described test they invite you to visit HR interview (my advise is to make it that way it was technical interview the same day just not to visit office several times). Depending on customer you may be asked to pass some other technical tests (which are normally more difficult and cover not only java basics but olse JEE asics, some advanced java topics etc.) and home task (write some application e.g. smth like client-server).

    What is remarkable about any Ciklum project is that customer knows amount of salary which candidate announced on HR interview and can make decision on hiring a candidate or discuss salary on the last interview.

    After all interview stages have passed HR will normally give you feedback (which can be either a JOB OFFER or you do not match). If candidate did not pass the interview for one customer HR will try to find another suitable project (if there are any). Unfortunately I once experienced HR did not call me back after all interviews.

    Senior Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Islamabad, Islamabad (Pakistan)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Islamabad, Islamabad (Pakistan)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Ciklum in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    The interviews start with the technical interview, then the HR and then the CEO interviews. In my technical interview I was interviewed by a panel of experts in the field. Almost all of the people were knowledgeable professionals. The interview was in-depth and covered almost all the skills required by the position. There was special emphasis on design skills, since it was a senior position. I was also given some actual problems to solve on paper. All in all it was well-balanced interview, not too tough nor too easy.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    There is always some margin for negotiation on title and the package offered. So I would suggest that you make a good impression in your technical interview first to be in a position later on to negotiate on the two things.
