    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Markit.

    Interview

    I applied via LinkedIn. The recruiter was extremely nice and advised she would forward my resume over and would reach out to me either way. A couple of days later I had an on site interview with the hiring manager. The site seemed pretty cool, had a laid back atmosphere, and it seemed very young. I'm 34 yrs old and felt like a senior citizen. Hiring manager was very cool once I got to meet him. Prior to meeting him I had to take a timed test on my SQL skills. It's a paper test and has about 10 questions.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you rate yourself on SQL? How much experience do you have working on multiple projects?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. Offer was a little lower than I had expected however, this company does give yearly bonuses which would bump me up. Plus the managers and recruiter advised that raises are given yearly. So, I'm optimistic and will give it a year for off site role. If they want me to take the on site roll in the future I need a dramatic raise.
