    I worked at the trainline.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of innovation and opportunities available. Decent working environment generally - majority of people smart and switched on. Centrally located offices, reasonable benefits.

    Cons

    Some departmental politics / divisions can be annoying. Senior management don't appear to be held accountable for some of their actions which can be frustrating. Salary isn't the best but not too bad either...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure engagement with staff. Promote from within as much as possible. Cut out bureaucracy. Don't waste money on ridiculous corporate nonsense. Share options or performance related benefits.

    Agile Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at the trainline.com.

    Interview Details

    I got introduced to thetrainline.com through a recruiter. After reviewing my CV they wanted to know more through email about my experience with Agile. I answered with 5/6 lines replies to each of their 4 questions and they came back with more questions about agile and so this time I replied with 30/40 lines per question.

    Next I got scheduled for a first phone interview where I was asked a few technical questions (not too difficult) and again I was requested to explain how I work in an agile way in my current company (all over again with the same questions I had already replied in detail on my email).

    After this step I got assigned some code to comment on and improve with unit tests, etc... I completed the excercise the same day and posted to their shared repository. Nothing too difficult, there were clear design issues with the implementation.

    A few days later I was notified by the recruiter that they didn't like my solution so they would not proceed further. I was a bit surprised, I asked for more details from thetrainline.com but were offered none.

    In the emails that we exchanged (through the recruiter) they managed to misspell both my first name and my surname, which I've found a bit careless on their side.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't get to the face to face interview. The phone screening questions were fairly standard about OO, database, data structures.   Answer Question
