    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in City of London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Commerzbank in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    One hour written technical test on core Java in a room with a dozen other candidates. Company never bothered to let me know if I passed the test so I assume that meant I didn´t pass. It doesn´t take much effort to send candidates an email so not impressed with the company (although the offices are very nice).

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Commerzbank in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    First got contacted by a headhunter for the position. Then had a first 30 min call with someone from HR to discuss my background, degrees and motivation for this position. Subsequently I was invited to their office for sort of big day: I had interviews with a director and with one MD. Interviews a long and complicated case study (quite technical). Then I had to do modelling test (cash flow) and also went through a numerical test. I was invited for another round of interviews which consisted mainly of meeting the different members of the team. On overall the process took 4 weeks.
