    Mindmill Test - Straight forward enough

    assessment day
    Presentation on your family crest
    Group task
    Interview

    It was all fairly relaxed. The company seems good and like a decent place to work. Toughest thing was probably the crest. Creativity and presentation skills are key i think.

    for the group work, it seemed allright. HOwever, I know HR will read this, so I would like them to note that it is pointless giving the two groups the same task and asking them to do the same presentation one after another. Both our groups were almost identical in presentations. The first group said everything we needed to say so the Q & A at the end were fairly meaningless.

    The interview was ok, it was fairly relaxed, the usual interview questions, nothing too tricky. However, I was asked a question, spent about 10 seconds answering it before the second interviewer cut across and asked me another question. I was unable to answer the question for the first guy! this happened a few times aswell! But not to worry, decent enough interview.

     All in all the interview experience was good.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Version 1.

    Interview Details

    Submitted CV, received a phone call just to talk through the CV and was then invited to complete an aptitude assessment which was enjoyable. After passing this with a certain score invited to an interview and this was followed by another interview with HR and a manager. The whole process was very relaxed, I was immediately put at ease, they do really believe in their core values which was incredibly refreshing. From my very first encounter with Version 1 I was excited at the prospective of working for the company and believe it will be a fantastic place to build a career!

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Version 1.

    Interview Details

    I applied online via LinkedIn.
    There was an initial phone call which was brief where I was told about the company and the hiring process.
    Next was an online assessment with a lot of multiple choice questions, basic maths problems, memory questions. This needs to be done quickly so make sure you are in a place you can concentrate.
    Next was a group interview of about 17 people, which involved, an introduction, what you know about Version1, drawing some pictures about yourself (family crest) and a group practical ( ERD diagram or web app problem).
    After that there was an 2 interviews in the same day, general questions about your cv - college, work and life experiences.
    Finally there was a interview with a senior consultant which again was a general interview.

    Applications Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belfast, Northern Ireland (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Version 1 in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process at Version 1 was professional but had a very relaxed feel throughout which really put me at ease. Dealing with the recruitment specialist via email was straightforward and the interviews were discussions about my my current skill-set and my aspirations rather than trying to catch me out with awkward questions. Version 1 have core values which are guidelines to make the company a great place to work and also to ensure that they ensure their customers are satisfied, and it is clear even from the application process that everyone follows these values.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked about a time when someone tried to redesign or better a solution I designed, this is something that has no doubt happened in the past but it was not a question I was prepared for and therefore as not able to provide any real answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    the negotiation phase was very straightforward, I was asked about my notice period and salary expectations, Version 1 fully understood that I may have had to work 3 months notice and made me a generous salary offer within the range I asked for. I also told the recruitment team about holiday days I needed this year and next year and they responded quickly to tell me it wasn't a problem.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Version 1 in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    First stage was online personality and psychometric test. Following that I had three rounds of interviews. One telephone and one face to face with the hiring manager & one face to face with HR. Overall a positive experience. Everyone I met was very friendly. There was none of this 'good cop/bad cop' rubbish that you get at some interviews. No particularly difficult questions, none of them competency based either. Very focussed on Version1 company values.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing really difficult or off the was. Everything related to my personal values -v- the company values or the role.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Although I was very impressed with the company, values & role my personal circumstances changed during the interview process and the timing wasn't right. I would definitely apply again in the future though.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Version 1 in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for Version 1 consists of a number of interview stages, all of which I have found interesting and enjoyable. The first step is an online psychometric and aptitude test. These tests consisted of a series of questions to assess your personality and quick fire questions to determine your cognitive ability.

    The second stage was a group assessment day which was the most enjoyable and relaxed interview I have ever attended. The group was briefed on the schedule for the day and the tasks we would be doing. The first task was designed to get a quick insight into your personality and to give everyone a change to talk about themselves. The second task was a question to assess our technical ability and to determine how well we worked in teams. The solution provided by the team was then presented to the group giving the team the opportunity to demonstrate their presentation skills and technical knowledge.

    Throughout the interview process I found the people at Version 1 highly professional and very friendly. The Version 1 team put the group at ease and made us feel very welcome but also managed to put us on the spot and ask some difficult questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question I found to answer was how do you perceive yourself? The answer of which was to be represented by a picture.   View Answer
