    Tester Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Trayport in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The initial communication about the role and its details took place with a recruiter from client server company. I told the recruiter from day one that I am looking for 60k, and nothing less than that. She was fine with that and she actually advertised the role on 65k on some websites. After the initial CV exchange and a talk about my past experience and suitability, she forwarded my CV. Trayport liked it and called for a telephone interview.

    It was probably more than 30 minutes, and if i remember correctly, almost 45 minutes technical interview. Once i cleared that interview, they asked me to come for face to face interviews in their London liverpool office. The interview started with a written test followed by interview with a test lead and another senior engineer. They were quiet friendly and hospitable. The whole process took about 2-3 hours.

    The office was fairly clean and well lit. I was interviewed in a meeting room undisturbed. So the whole interview was well planned. At times though, the interview felt boring. The work culture described by the interviewers in both interviews was fun but I didn't find them humorous or any members of the teams outside having much fun. Normally, some parts of the office are dedicated for games room etc. I didn't see any.

    After the interview, the recruiter called me and said they like you but they want me to ask you if you are flexible with your salary expectation. I said NO since they were only offering 55k. The recruiter also mentioned that if I agree on salary expectation, there will be another round of interview with more senior members of the organization.

He explained the structure of the interview and explained that the interview was to explore cultural fit. He then explained about the company and products, which I had expected to be asked about. I did not pass the telephone interview but the following stages included a small panel interview, followed by an HR interview and then a chat with the COO.

    Contract Senior Developer Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Trayport in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Vetted by agent and then had to do a technical test on the phone. Was then invited to a face to face with a technical manager and a technical lead. Apprehensive having read Trayport staff comments. My experience echoed existing staff comments about Trayport Tech Lead's experience.

    Interview Questions
    • You have 20 minutes to a write a syntactically correct program in C# that will create all the possible letter/word combinations of a telephone key pad for a 7 digit number. You are not allowed to use a pen and paper. You are not allowed to use Visual Studio, but an editor we provide, however it must work correctly when we run it in Visual Studio.

      Both interviewers watching me and making notes.

      Interview question was not prepared but hastily typed up by tech lead who had a poor grasp of written English, I had to help him correct his question several times. The editor they gave me was poor and had its own learning curve which I doubt they scoped in.

      A decent question ruined by ill thought and pointless caveats.

    Support Analyst Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Trayport in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    A recruiter contacted me booked a phone interview. The company cancelled the interview a few days before it was due to take place - they had picked someone already.

    I understand it is important to fill positions quickly, but this is bad practice, and has wasted a good few hours of my time, since I was all prepared for the interview. Trayport should at least have had the courtesy to go through the motions having booked the interview

    Reasons for Declining

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Trayport in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of different types of questions, completely unrelated to the role applied for. Minimum was expected on the job spec but more questions were asked in the interview.

    It contained a skills test which contained programming and some other IQ questions. This part was pretty easy and the interview was cordial but for some reason did not work out.
