    C# Agile Developer (Senior) Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at the trainline.com.

    Interview Details

    Submitted by an agency. Initially a short telephone interview to discuss possible teams you could work for within the company with a manager and HR personnel (which seemed premature) - very little in technical questions. Following this I was sent two technical tests, (most people would get one). I took a C# and a Front End UI coding test which both took a couple of hours each.

    I was then invited for an in person interview which involved a pair programming exercise with a developer. For me this involved a C# test followed by a critique of thetrainline.com website UI and page flow for about an hour and half. Following this I was surprised to be handed off to an HR employee who informed me that they didn't want to continue the interview process due to some of my code/comments during the C# test (the reasons were unclear since HR had understood little of the developers feedback). The whole thing felt very unprofessional, especially since I had spent a good 45 minutes providing valuable UI feedback after the C# test. It felt like the interviewing developer was just picking my brains for good ideas he could take for himself.
