    Junior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Playtech (London, England (UK)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The process was quite nice. A quick call with the HR/recruiter(Mario) Really polite guy. He gave me a brief understanding of the role also he explained to me further about the position and the company’s structure. Phone interview with developers, it went well. Discussed about myself and some tech questions like what’s the difference between class and interface. Very easy questions. Then they sent me a test about using a list of objects and make some calculations depending on some games users in object have. Then was the face to face interview. Lasts two hours with more questions about myself and experiences I have. Also, some simple java questions. Furthermore they gave me a question on the technical test how I did it and they asked me to extend it there doing also something else which was easy just to confirm I did the test by myself. My impression is that I think is a very good company and it is quite difficult to find such a company out there. However, had to reject the offer as salary wasn’t what I was looking for.

    Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Playtech.

    Interview

    HR contacted me directly and asked me to come for an interview. First interview was nice, I felt that people are motivated and I was excited to work there. I was talking with another developer and I felt good match.
    I was waiting for 3 weeks and after that I got a message that I was accepted for a next round. Next interview was directly with managers. Their attitude was very hostile and atmosphere was totally cold. They asked very personal and unrelated questions to make me look like an idiot. I heard before that PlayTech has "managers from hell", but I had no idea that this rumor is actually true.
    After that I was waiting for another 3 weeks and I got message that I was accepted. I declined their offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Playtech (London, England (UK)) in December 2014.

    Interview

    There was no phone interview. I received a written test to complete in 30 or 45 minutes (can't remember) and after that we had discussions based on the test results.
    They went through my CV and asked questions based on that.
    I was also asked about my previous experience and technologies used in previous job.
