Trainee Software Developer Interview

Trainee Software Developer
Bristol, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Northgate Information Solutions in August 2007.

Interview Details – I was approached by an agency who did all the communication with the company and they filled me in with
the job details and then forwarded my CV onto the company. When I was asked to come in for an interview
it was through the agency. The interview was with the team leader I would be working for and his manager.
The interview was pretty straightforward - they asked about University (dissertation, favourite subjects etc)
and my previous jobs. They didn't ask about how well I matched their requirement...they were
expecting someone with no experience so really they wanted to see what kind of person I was more than anything and to tell me about the company and the job.
Everyone seemed really relaxed but not too laid back..you could tell they were getting on with their jobs but also there was a friendly atmosphere.

  • Explain you reasons for choosing your dissertation and generally describe what it is about.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a little as the min salary I was willing to accept was higher than what was offered but the actual negotiation was done through the agency who did a rather good job.
To other candidates - be wary. Although the initial pay may be good compared to other companies...your salary won't increase a lot once you have the job as they are a bit stingy when it comes to salary reviews and promotions especially if you don't have a lot of experience. Some of the more senior management don't seem to realise that a lot of experience does not necessarily translate into competence.
