    Senior Systems Tester Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Kings Cross, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kings Cross, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days - interviewed at ITV.

    Interview Details

    One written interview (questions below)

    One phone interview, usual chat about my CV and why I was leaving my current role and why I like testing.

    One interview in person in their London offices near Kings Cross.

    Interviewer was a woman who took a lot of time telling me how tired/stressed she was. As the interview went on, she also told me how much work she had to do more than once.

    Then, to my surprise, she mocked the person who had her role before her and went on to talk disparagingly of other candidates for turning up late, being nervous etc. I was hoping she did it to relax me but afterwards I think she did it because she is not a very sympathetic person.

    More questions about my background but I found it hard to engage with her and felt it was hard to hold her attention. She played a lot with her clothes and hair as well as looking out the glass windows to the atrium below.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did not like the interviewer. I felt I was offered the job as just a number and none of my 4 years of testing experience was taken into consideration. I was also promised feedback on my interview within 3 days whereas in reality, it took 7.. In the meantime, I accepted another role with a company who impressed me when I went to interview with them.
