    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Capgemini (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The first is a Phone screening via a recruitment agency. The agent goes through your CV and pulls out what may be relevant to the role being interviewed for.
    The face to face interview with two people who are likely to be peers follows. The ask tech questions, and require you to read an unseen case.
    Finally a Senior management one-to-one phone interview (the head of dept chat). This part is straightforward and is used in part to set salary.

    Interview Questions

    • F2F interview:
      - Went over case study. The relatively straightforward case study makes it clear that the job is a consultancy delivery role. You have forty minutes to read the case and prepare a presentation. Twenty minutes Q&A.
      - Then, 30 minutes of general technology discussion.

      - Finally, 10 minutes of Questions from you.

      The senior management interview was not really an interview. The ulterior motive was to see how low an offer they could make i.e. it was to prepare me for a low offer. The typical consultancy spiel of "Enterprise scale" and related BS was used to low ball an offer. The senior manager though was not versed enough in the technology to realise that the tools that are available automatically take care of the "enterprise" problems he mentioned.

    Reasons for Declining

    I decided it was not worth negotiating - if a company is so silly before you join what will it be like after you join?

    Consultant/Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    Telephone interview (oct 16) - basic questions like why capgemini, why technology. Then asked describe 3 skills you have and specify examples. Passed
    Assessment Centre (jan 17)- Prestentation - I was a bit nervous about time limit. Interview - all competency based, although they call it strength based. 3 simple technical questions. Group tasks - went okay. Asked to design an mobile app UI. Nothing too technical. At the end of group tasks, you are asked what you think of how others performed which was a bit awkward. They only judge your team working abilities, not technical knowledge.
    I was rejected at this stage. Feedback given - presentation not prepared, general lack of passion towards technology, nervous, few inputs in the group session.

    Human Resources Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Capgemini (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Quick and easy telephone interview. There was a strong echo from their side and I could hear her typing my responses very loud so the keyboard was almost distracting me. Also at the beginning, I was told they have a strict 15 min time slot which they cannot go over so responses need to be kept concise. I actually found that quite off-putting because I felt as if I was being rushed and I hadn't even started the interview yet.

    Interview

    Unprofessional - Seemed like an interview for name sake. As if they actually do not want to hire just interviewing people and waste everybody's time.
    The company recruiter had send email for the interview process, made me wait for 2 hours although a time slot was allotted in the interview call letter.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me nothing about my profile. Just a basic question - Explain about yourself and your experience in IT so far. Nothing technical or in depth.   Answer Question

    Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Capgemini.

    Interview

    Standard online tests then a telephone interview. The person interviewing me came across as arrogant at how superior the company was, and boasted that he didn't leave the office until late at night. The questions were competency based and standard. Got through to the assessment centre. In the individual interview the interviewer acted like he did not want to be there, kept complaining about how much paper he had to fill out. From the few employees we did meet, they gave an impression of arrogance. Would not recommend.
