    Interview

    The interview process was short and very easy, short, informal. There was no specific knowledge required. It was more if you would fit within the team. 2 interviews with the team and one with HR. Afterwards quick process.

    QA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Alpari (UK) (London, England (UK)) in October 2013.

    Interview

    One of the most pathetic interview I have ever been to. I have had my share of interviews and have also conducted some myself, but this was by far the worst. First question on the telephonic interview is Salary expectations, next a range of questions are totally irrelevant to the job spec. SQL questions are fired around as though your life depends on it. Then you get invited for a F2F, just to see the genius behind the phone call. Firstly, only the Manager walks into the interview room afer making me wait for 10 mins, no apologies asked. There were some more SQL questions where you are expected to write executable queries, no syntax errors mind you !!! Then some block diagrams are flashed in front of you with zero or no help available as to what needs to be done. 30 mins into the interview, we both knew this was not going to work. The questions covered did not even cover 20% of my CV strengths. I somehow felt that the lone interviewer knew only SQL and kept asking me to write SQL statements that would run on paper. I felt that things did not work out for a reason, I would have definitely struggled to work with the delusional freak running the shop there. Not even the posh office in a posh area sold it for me. I returned sad thinking it was utter waste of good time and money. I would avoid Alpari like plague in future. I might seem bitter not getting the job, but, I was already holding an offer for more money than on offer in Alpari, but wanted to give Alpari a chance because their job spec looked great.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Alpari (UK).

    Interview

    Communication and interview arrangements very positive however as an introvert, the telephone interview didn't go well with me. This could be a downside for those highly technical who tend to be on the introvert side. It was intense, awkward, difficult to engage with interviewer,quick without an opportunity to express passions for the company or why you think you are suitable for the role. It felt like an exam where you just have to get the questions right. I found some of the questions very out of of the box interview questions and mind boggling.

    I would have preferred a Skills Test.

    The recruiter responded with feedback after a few weeks.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Alpari (UK) (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Seems complete waste of time. I got a mail from HR for telephone interview. On the day of the interview, the interviewer didn't call me on time. Had to drop an email to HR requesting for reschedule.

    The interview was pathetic. He asked me precisely 3 questions like hashmap, synchronization object, and critical section (I am pretty sure that I answered okay) and he said HR will call me to let me know about the outcome.
    I was completely shocked...the interview didn't last for more 3 minutes...I also offered to talk about more...

    Anyways got rejected. Hope you will have better experience.
    Best of luck
