    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, CO
    No Offer
    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.

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Paddy Power Betfair (London, England (UK)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on November and the process finished near the end of December.First part of the process was the application. After a couple of days I received a mail to book a phone interview. The phone interview was mostly about behavioural questions and included 10 questions about Java. If we passed we were given a programming test. Although after a couple of days we were told we shouldn't do it and that we automatically passed..After a week I was invited in the Assessment Centre. We were divided in two groups. The first part included a small presentation of ourselves. Then we had a 1-1 interview that included mostly behavioural questions. Then we had a group presentation about the implementation of a scalable betfair exchange site. Last part was a technical test that included Fibonacci, a method to find the unique characters of a list using hashmap and another one I don't remember. Overall it was a nice experience.
