    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woking, England (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fidessa (Woking, England (UK)).

    Interview

    First a Codility test from home. Results were not shared. However they invited me on site. 2 Codility tests of half an hour each to start with that were quite easy. First one went well although it produced 20% success because 2 tests (of the ones that Codility runs after the solution submission) failed although all the other passed and the complexity was the required one. I asked the interviewer to discuss them and check the results but he refused. He mentioned that he didn't understand why they failed but didn't care about it. The second test although straightforward I didn't have enough time to compile it and run the default tests. The algorithm was written though. Again I asked him to discuss it but he refused. He didn't even comment on the code I wrote. To sum up, very poor interview process only based on the Codility results which are not evaluated by the interviewer as the score only matters.

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

    Interview

    First there was an online 30 minute codility test, which was straightforward and had one question. Then an on-site 1 hour codility test with two questions, again straightforward. If you passed this test you proceed to the next round asking you competency based questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Fidessa (Woking, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Two stage process. The first part was 2 Codility problems. If you passed these you went on to the interview. I failed these. The first one on a minor coding error the second I couldn't work out a solution at the time. They have improved their process from earlier comments, in that you now have access to MSDN. I would advise to spend a lot of time working through Codility example questions. They cover a lot of general situations you might encounter in the actual tests.

    Interview

    First stage is an 30min online coding test. The testing enviroment is Codility. You have to submit code with a particular time and space complexity.Its mostly related to array manipulation(vector, string, array etc.) and you can choose the programming language. No Object Oriented though.
    After that given that you pass the online test there are 2 more coding tests on company's site and a formal interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fidessa (Woking, England (UK)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    If they are happy with your CV you are asked to perform an online programming task. This was a Codility test a little harder than the three demo tests on the Codility website. If they are happy with that you are invited to an on-site programming test and subsequent interview if you pass. Alas, I did not pass the programming test so I cannot say anything about the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • In the coding test you have one hour to solve two Codility problems, one a little harder than the on-line test and one a little harder than that. I was able to solve the problems when I got home - I simply ran out of time when I was doing the problems on site.   Answer Question
