    Middle DevOps Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ciklum.

    Interview

    Very "cool" feedback. Thanks for decline reasons, but half of them not being asked during interview. Seems like Copy/Paste or just "I gues he/she didn't know that".

    Position is open more than 18mnth for sure but only one person hired. Empty office. Looks like Company is just pretennding to be "International" and not realy hiring in EU.

    Recruitment Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gdańsk (Poland)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ciklum (Gdańsk (Poland)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied via Linkedin. The process took 2 weeks. Firstly I had Skype interview with a recruitment consultant based in Ukraine. The interview took around 40 minutes and was based mainly on my CV. Two days later I had a message that I qualified for 2nd stage of the process. It was a Skype interview with hiring manager. It took around 25minutes. Questions were checking whether I will be suitable for the role. I had a feedback 2 days later, unfortunately I didn't get the job. Both interviews were conducted in nice atmosphere and I think this company would be a nice place to work.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Málaga (Spain)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ciklum (Málaga (Spain)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    They stood me up twice for a Skype interview. The third time, they arranged an in-person one at Malaga headquarters, which I went to, only to find out ten minutes later that a stressed recruiter had no time for me, so we would continue over Skype on Monday, and she stood me up again. The fourth time, we were finished, so finished that next day she'd tell me that I was out of the process, with no explanation whatsoever. I didn't get to prove my technical skills (this HR girl probably couldn't tell the difference between Java and Javascript), and my portfolio didn't receive any visit (she made me re-do my curriculum three times, and ironically no one even took a look at it). So after an eternal process of two months duration, being stood up three times, being discriminated on account of age, and having spent a morning in Parque Tecnológico, I didn't make it to the decision maker, not even the technical interviewer. When I told her my salary expectations, she laughed at me, so I cut them by half and I offered to work for a position I am overqualified and overexperienced for. I don't know if the hiring process was real, it honestly looked like a joke. Most unprofessional environment I've ever experienced in five years, and I don't mean the Ikea furniture. I hope the time, energy and money they made me lose can be helpful for future applicants thanks to Glassdoor, so in the end this won't be a big waste of time but a way for me to help others.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Málaga (Spain)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ciklum (Málaga (Spain)) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I sent my application and a few days later I had a face to face interview. The Recruiter was very polite and professional. The interview took around 1 hour.
    The PTA is situated near Malaga but it is a nightmare to drive at 9:00 am when all other companies open the offices. I guess will be the same in the afternoon when all companies finish at the same time.
    The company has a very nice and dynamic environment. The new offices in the Parque Tecnológico in Málaga look fantastic.
    Unfortunately they are not flexible regarding working hours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ciklum (Kiev (Ukraine)).

    Interview

    The longest process ever! Impression of so many interviews is that HR Dep is not professional to decide in 1-2 rows, they needed four or five (I can even remember now so many it was..), few of them panel. Plus one interview with test-case. All interviews took about 6 hours....

    Frontend Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ciklum (Kiev (Ukraine)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring not very good at Ciklum. It has a lot of open vacancies on job sites which Ciklum can't close for long time. I've found few vacancies which I fit very well, but no one offer it to me though I was actively searching for a new job and usually recruiters in Kyiv are know about candidate fairly quickly. So, I applied to one vacancy but no one replied to me at all. Fortunately I have friend in HR team in Ciklum, but she didn't ask me to come to the interview rather she find a recruiter (which was not easy) who deal with that project. Basically it's not Ciklum hired me, but I myself insist on working for them.

    Interview Questions

    • Basically interview had two parts - technical and manager's. On technical I was asked some tricky questions from javascript. Manager from his side didn't ask anything, but told about project and if I had interest to work with them.   1 Answer
