Valtech Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Business Analyst Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Valtech.
Interview Details – Lengthy interview process, visited offices twice, and two telephone interviews. Inefficient process. Was hired twice, accepted then told position was on hold because lack of funding. They called back and extended offer again only to rescind 3 days before start date because of funding. Very unprofessional.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected, standard questions where you describe past experiences, specific jobs, etc. Questions like, what's your best project, worst, and why. Should be prepared to use whiteboard to explain a process or model. For example, if you know business process modeling or web architecture, you should know how to draw it out. Answer Question

Senior Consultant II Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Valtech in September 2010.
Interview Details – Interview fairly straightforward. Conversational, discussion of previous experience and projects, evidence of previous work.
Information on likely location of client sites and overall working hours could have been better represented.
Base office fairly empty most of the time as most of the consultants are offsite most of the time - so not the best for those looking for a lively home base atmosphere - pretty quiet. Some nice basic features provided for tea, coffee and snacks.
Interview Question – What do you know about us? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Negotiation contact was reasonably flexible on the elements of the package which were obviously below par in the first place, such as holiday leave
.NET Developer Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Valtech in April 2009.
Interview Details – A recruiter first calls up and spends half an hour discussing consultancy roles and if you are a good fit. You are then sent a link to around 4 online tests covering all programming areas and .NET in majority. The tests are very tough but if you pass you are called to a face to face interview.
In the face to face interview a Senior consultant will spend an hour digging very deep into the .NET architecture and make you write lots of code on a white board including algorithms like Fibonacci etc.
After this a director will spend 30 mins delving even deeper into programming aspects with more white board code scribbling.
You then spend half an hour with HR director going through behavioural and personality questioning.
