    Customer Service Role Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Paddy Power Betfair (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview process is best described as a similar to "speed dating". It is rushed from start to finish. Interview invites are done in bulk, and depending on the interviewer you get no more than 20 minute 1:1 to show your abilities. Person's interviewing are nice and as professional as can be but appear pressured to complete quickly to move to the next waiting person. Interview is structured with a typing 1 minute test, another exam like test on sports, gaming, and math knowledge finished off with a customer service scenario requiring you to reply.

    In line with the interview pace feedback was extremely quick and within 1 week

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Paddy Power Betfair (Louisville, CO) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Betfair appears to be a great company to work for. Their managers and talent acquisition people are direct, honest, and intelligent (e.g., they ask probing questions which indicates the types of smart people that work there). It is rare that an internal corporate recruiter not only call with the results of the decision, but to provide substantive feedback. I wish them all the best in growing the business in the US.

    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paddy Power Betfair (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Thought the process was disappointing, with no feedback on phone interview from the recruiter. Felt the unprofessionalism was a bit much for not following up with candidates. Can respect if one was not right for the position, but don't leave someone hanging with no contact. Wouldn't recommend.

    Frontend Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paddy Power Betfair (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied to the position via LinkedIn. After a first call over the phone with some basic questions (technical and personal ones), they invited me on-site for attending a 2 hours technical interview.
    The whole process wasn't so hard, some questions were based on Javascript tricks and concepts, others were about a build pipeline. Overall, it wasn't so hard, I was expecting something more though.
    Result: they told that I should have received feedback within the next week. I never got an email from them at all. After almost 10 days, I wrote them again asking for a follow-up. They never replied.
