    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Applied via LinkedIn. ~4 weeks later got a terse email requesting a phone interview slot.

    Phone interviewer was curt, straight into coding questions of form "what is a...?" with barely a hello. Which tests things you can easily Google, but not proper understanding or insight. Only got a description of the actual role & team through my own questions at the end.

    Came away with distinct impression interviewer didn't want to be doing the interview, and wasn't interested in me.

    I say "no offer", but actually the company hasn't got back to me so maybe my contract is just lost in the post.

    Disrespectful and a total waste of both of our times, fortunately only 20 mins if you don't count all the company research I'd undertaken with the misconception they were serious about my application.

    Application

    Interview

    Applied online, got a phone call a few days after and scheduled an interview day for the week after.

    All in all very enjoyable process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (London, England (UK)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with their recruiter and then a 4 hour interview process. After the phone interview I was instructed to come up with 3 presentation titles under the general headings of "technical", "scientific" and "team", they then chose a topic for me to prepare for the interview. Started with a one on one interview, then the 20 minute presentation that I had prepared plus questions followed by another one on one interview and then an informal chat with two employees at the company. I was promised feedback by the recruiter but did not receive any until I pestered them to. Was made to feel slightly uncomfortable as a woman interviewing in front of a group of men, as it was pointed out by a member of the group that I was the only woman in the room, something I didn't feel like needed attention drawn to.

    Risk Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Risk Management Solutions (London, England (UK)) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of one telephone and two face to face interviews with members of the prospective team including senior management. The interviews were challenging but enjoyable and always performed in a relaxed manner. Both face to face interviews included case studies, to be done on a white board, and I had to give a presentation during the last interview. Meeting the majority of the team and senior management was very useful as it allowed me to satisfy myself that everyone was good natured and had a good work life balance.

    Throughout the process HR were very good and kept me up to date which meant that the process was not a long and drawn out one.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was happy with the offer and therefore no negotiation was required.
