Consultant – Software Development Interview

Consultant – Software Development

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at GCM Grosvenor.

Interview Details – First step is a 24 hours deadline programming assignment.(Some contrived problem about foods and ingredients).

Second step is an in-house interview where they show you a badly designed class and you must fix it. You also get to meet 2 teams of managers and you have to be ready to answer some boring questions (Where do you want to be in 5 years? etc.)

Interview Question – Where do you want to be in 5 years?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Company was adamant about salary and start date
