    Strategy Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jagex (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    A telephone interview initiated the process. The call consisted of some technical assessment questions and the typical work history/skills discussions.

    Following the telephone interview was a slightly eclectic day on-site. Interviewed by members of multiple teams and asked (old) Google-esque psychoanalysis questions, etc.

    The process was very casual (fitting for the environment) and as such, relatively stress-free.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Jagex (Cambridge, East of England, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I applied on their careers website early December 2015. I got an automatic reply that my application is being processed etc. and that if I haven't heard back in a week I should consider my application unsuccessful. Two months later(!) I received an email saying my application is with the selection team and I'll be hearing back in about a week, and that I should prepare for an online test. Another two months later(!) I receive an email saying they decided not to move on with my application. I think its apparent how flawed their selection process and how dysfunctional their HR department are. I don't think any sane person (including me) would want to move on with the process after this.
