    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at TomTom in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I found the job advert on LinkedIn, sent in an application online and got a response from a recruiter after 2 days inviting me to take a Codility online test. Took the test and was unceremoniously told I'd failed it the following day, with no explanation. I asked for additional feedback but was ignored.

    Interview Questions
    • The coding test was 2 parts - it started in a fairly straightforward way (45 minutes to program a linked list, which I completed in 15) then 2 hours to complete 2 more challenges which became exponentially more difficult. I forget the first challenge but the second was writing an algorithm to count the number of different coloured regions in a bitmap image. I managed to produce a solution just barely within the time.

      I have no idea if or where any of the solutions failed because the Codility interface gives no real feedback at all - just a rudimentary way of testing simple inputs. I could well have made some mistakes that would have been easy to solve with more rigorous testing or more time but you're expected to give a perfect solution first time, in a very short time for the problem difficulty.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at TomTom in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Codility online coding test + Java proficiency online test. Passed those with flying colors (although it's a red flag for me, it sends a message of "we are too lazy to test your coding skills ourselves). Got a phone interview with the hiring manager. I thought it went well but I have not been notified either way after 3 weeks. Very unprofessional in my opinion. I can take no for an answer but being ignored is something that does not sit well with me

    Communications - Bizarre Process and Weird Characters Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Amsterdam (Netherlands)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at TomTom.

    Interview Details

    Got contacted for a face-to-face interview by HR. Had interview with the Marketing VP. He walked in and without even introducing himself asked what my questions were. Very arrogant, also created hostile atmosphere. I also felt like leaving as I would not have wanted to work with him! Director of Comms joined and then the VP lost interest and just walked out of the interview without even saying a word.
    What also is very strange, the same positions (at least PR and Communications in Amsterdam) keep being reposted and that steadily for about a year. So be aware that they don't know what they want or that candidates run away!
