    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALTEN.

    Interview

    It was a call from the hiring manager. He described the position, the company and the scope of the company. A call was scheduled for the next day with the engineering manager to get an overall sense of my focus and where I would fit in.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ALTEN (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    They are a global consulting company seeking to branch out into technology companies in the Seattle area. As such, they're concurrently trying to sign up the actual consulting contracts while building a pipeline of people who could staff them. In other words, there is no real position open yet.

    Framed that way, the interview was primarily a get-to-know-each-other in their small executive suite in Bellevue. It was an enjoyable conversation with no real surprising questions. Given the uncertainty about their contract, there was no clear call-to-action at this time.

    No Interview, Only Preparation for the Client Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nice (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at ALTEN (Nice (France)).

    Interview

    They asked by phone if I had knowledge on a series of items their client was interested on (and which they didn´t have knowledge of). When I said I did, they appointed me for an interview "with them and with the client". Travel expenses were to be covered by me and the EU.

    When I landed in Nice, I was given no directions as on how to get to the office (30km far). No response by phone, no help. Directly expected me to *know* where the offices were.

    The interview with Alten was actually a preparation for the interview with the client. No question was asked, only a description of what the client wanted to hear, and how the client is organized - quite a pantomime.

    After doing the only real interview with the client, Alten expected me to sign my contract that same day or the day after, not letting me have a second to decide what my options or opinions were.

    I applied online. I interviewed at ALTEN.

    Interview

    Really a negative experience, I went 3 times to meet them and after 2 months they don't even send me a feedback. They just steal time to have information about other companies.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hamburg (Germany)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ALTEN (Hamburg (Germany)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied on their website.
    I received a phone call asking me to come for a 1:1 interview within a week.
    Had to fill out a form indicating what my major programming skills were and send that in an email.
    Had the interview.
    Was told I would be informed of the result 2 weeks after the interview.

    Interview was split into 4 parts:
    - Interviewer talked about himself
    - I talked about myself
    - Interview explained how the company worked
    - Interview asked me if I had any questions

    The process was very casual and relaxed, I really enjoyed talking to the interviewer.

    The whole process was in English.

    Note: It says that I got an offer and accepted it, but I am actually still waiting to hear back from them. Glassdoor wouldn't let me submit the interview without choosing an option though...

    CAD Engineer Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ALTEN in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter initially. She asked a series of questions but provided very little information about the role, its whereabouts or what was on offer. She then set up a telephone interview and said that I would get my answers as part of the interview process. There were confusions on their side on the day of the interview and I ended up calling to see if it was happening or not. I was again given very little information about the actual role during the process of interview. However, looking at comments here I can see why that is now. I did not receive any feedback which made the whole process feel like an absolute waste of time as I never contacted them in the first place!
