    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Monitise (San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was normal as same as other companies. Received a mail fro HR about phone screening which was scheduled on particular time. Got a call from one of their engineer than again received a mail next day for scheduling in person interview at their San Francisco office. Office location is really very good. The in-person interview lasted for around 3 hrs including their engineers and PM and at last HR. I got a mail from HR that the team really like me and gave a offer. Than I tried negotiating the offer and HR told she'll speak to the manager and get back to me in 2-3 days (after the date offer given was expiring). Then I received a mail from HR stating they have chosen another employee because that employee was asking for less money. I really found this behaviour unprofessional from a reputed company like this, if they couldn't negotiate they should tell that in first place that they have fixed budget and they arn't willing to negotiate, rather just keep delaying me and at last telling they found someone who is willing to work for less. I guess they should more concentrate on quality of employee not on how cheap can they get their work done.

    IT Management Interview

    Interview

    Complete Lack of Common Courtesy

    I was contacted by HR on LinkedIn asking for my resume which I sent. I then sent a follow up email to inquire about where things were and got no reply. So I sent another email just in case my first one got trapped as spam and got no reply again.

    If you reach out to someone and express an interest at least have some courtesy and decency to reply back. Companies like this with no regard to manners should be avoided at all cost.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Monitise.

    Interview

    Was a fairly smooth process; good communication, timely updates on next steps. The office was nice, very organized in terms of expecting my arrival, checked me in, interviewers were on time and I was impressed by the caliber of the people I met with. Overall a very good experience. Other than, however, the length of time it took from the initial interviews to offer; that took a long time for some internal process reasons.

    Strategy Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in City of London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Monitise (City of London, England (UK)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Robert Walters, a recruiting agency came across my CV on www.monster.co.uk. A recruiting consultant of Robert Walters contacted me about a Strategy Consultant position for Monitise Group that fits my profile. She interviewed me: basic CV questions and whether it is the sort of position, company and industry I were interested in. At the end of week one, she arranged for a phone screening interview with a Senior Strategy Consultant of Monitise.

    Week two, a Senior Strategy Consultant interviewed me over the phone. Why am I interested in this position? Why have I left my former employer? What do I know about Monitise? How strong are your quantitative skills? Are you skill in financial modelling? For the last two questions I told her am not an expert number-cruncher but am comfortable with numbers. She was sympathetically understanding and also confessed about her own weak quantitative side. She concluded if I move on to the next stage, the latter would involve a panel interview and case study exercise. At the end of week two, the recruiting consultant informed me of having passed the phone interview, and another interview the following week.

    Week three, I was interviewed by the same Senior Strategy Consultant and another Senior Consultant then followed by a face-to-face case study exercise. At the end of week three, the recruiting consultant informed me I have not succeeded citing my average quantitative skills as reasons.

    On the whole, the recruiting consultant from Robert Walters left an excellent impression in me. She was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The Senior Strategy Consultant with whom I had the phone screening interview was nice but she should have provided me with details about the case study exercise. I prepared for a written case study, hardly had figured it was going to be a verbal case study where Senior Consultant conveys the case orally. It was a very easy case study but because I rushed to get everything written down, my reasoning missed an important piece of information.

    I was kept waiting in the reception area for 17minutes over the interview scheduled time. Secondly, I wasn't impressed by their offices: small, "cluttered", downgrade and "unmodern". For a headquarter branch, those offices are a big let-down. Figuratively, those offices mirror the company's red balance sheet. Monitise is yet to make a profit. They are expected to breakeven in 2013. Good luck to Monitise.
