    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kemp in February 2018.

    Interview

    I applied for the job and quickly got an email from hr to arrange a call with them before any technical interviews. I did the call with a junior hr person who was very nice on the phone and just asked some general screening questions. Two weeks later I still had not heard anything back from them so I sent a follow up email asking for an update and received no response. Another 2 weeks later I again sent a mail asking for some update but received no response.

    A few months have gone by at this stage and the job is still being advertised and I am still being contacted by recruiters asking me to apply for the role but have received no feedback from the company.

    This seems like it is a good company to work for and I was excited about interviewing here but this type of treatment of a potential colleague has soured the whole experience. Needless to say it is unlikely that I will be contacted about a follow up interview at this stage but if I am then I will not be interested.

    Presales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kemp (London, England (UK)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Several Stage interviews - 2 Phone and 2 face to face.
    the first was with the HR manager just getting a feel for what I wanted in a role. the 2nd was with a presales engineer themselves.
    the face to face was first with the presales engineer (same as the tel) with the regional manager - asking about what i did and how my role would fit.
    the second face to face was with the regional manager and the emea sales director - this was tougher as it was direct questioning and very inward looking questions.

    none of them asked for feedback from the others - they wanted to form their own opinions, which i think is very good and i would do that if i was in their position.

    feedback was very quick and all positive.
