    IT Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sky (Livingston, Scotland (UK)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Brief and not very informative about what the role entailed. I found out very little about the company or role before I started and regretted joining. Sky, more than any other place I have ever worked, has good areas and bad areas, managers that have no clue and only some that are good. Overall they attempt to keep employees sweet with extra benefits like parties, events, occasional games but only pay lip service to real team togetherness. This starts form the interview process which is the weakest point - they hire quickly and get monkeys - and no amount of throwing peanuts is going to change a bad hire. It dilutes the company and makes it harder to succeed. If you get an interview - be prepared with good questions about why you want to join sky and really try hard to find out what you will be working on and a bit about the team you are working with. You may get in a good team with good people - if you're lucky.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Sky (Livingston, Scotland (UK)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    1st stage was telephone interview with a couple of competency based questions, 2nd was interview over Skype with a more Senior Manager and was more of a general discussion around where I seen the role developing.

    Interview Questions

    • Really didn't find any questions all that difficult, the conversations were relaxed and friendly and centered on subjects I had a full working knowledge of.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Took their offer without negotiation as it was 5k more than my role at the time and that didn't take into account the additional benefits such as free Sky Tv and healthcare.

Then that interviewer will give you some documents that you need to read over, these documents are a guide to go through a telephone role play with a different interviewer.
