Almost all the questions were related to my experience and was not difficult to answer.The 2nd Interview was attended by HR and the 3rd by the Hiring Manager ( more technical questions). The entire recruitment process was coordinated by a dedicated person from HR department who was extremely friendly. I found all the people at Version1 very professional.

Internship Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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
Senior Consultant Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Version 1.
Interview Details – After initial screening they will ask you to appear on a on-line analytical & technical test. As per the recruiter either way they will let you know the result, in my case after few follow up they told I have nothing to worry as passed with good score. Again after few weeks they mentioned to appear for a technical and managerial round. Those rounds were also normal and were friendly in nature. After having all positive interactions, I was expecting to hear from the recruiter but didn't get the feedback. After follow up came to know that hiring manager has still not shared the feedback which was highly unprofessional as usually either way they are obliged to provide feedback. After few weeks I got a regret email from the recruiter citing vogue excuses. I feel company doesn't follow the standard procedure and their recruitment process is little amateur.
Interview Question – None,all questions where standard and easy to answer. Answer Question

Interview Details – Applied online and within a few days I was contacted by the company who asked me a few general questions to get a feel for me and put across the company's goals and visions.
Asked to complete a personality test and abillity testing, relatively enjoyable and helps the company get a good understanding of the candidate. Different to anything I have ever done before, helped make me feel valued as a person and proved the company is looking for the person not necessarily the qualifications/grades.
Moved ont to assessment center which was very enjoyable, really put across the company as somewhere we should aspire to be working, impressive setting and surroundings and all round nice people. Couple f exercises to understand the candidate and a group task scenario to see how we work in teams.
Moved on to a 1 on 1 interview with H.R which was again enjoyable and waiting to hear back the results of this.
