    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aberdeen, SD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sky (Aberdeen, SD) in July 2017.

    Interview

    After you've completed their online process they contact you within a few days to set up a telephone interview. During that interview, which was in my case 3 days after their call, you are asked to provide them with some details about yourself (authorisation process) and then you're asked about Sky itself, their offer, customer service, your experience, why you'd be good at this job and etc. Immediately after the conversation you're informed whether you passed it. If yes, they tell you that you are invited for a Sky Experience Day, which is basically talking to other candidates there, discussing things like good customer service, group work, role-play (sales advisor-client) and a few written tasks. After that they contact you within a few days to tell you if you're employed or not.
    Everyone is extremely nice and helpful, nothing to worry about :)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sky.

    Interview

    I applied for Sky after seeing the role advertised on Glass door and within a few weeks had an email back to speak with an in-house recruiter about the role and my experiance and was then offered an interview.
    In the interview confirmation email, I was advised that I should read through the job description again and understand the role, thought about my transferable skills, research Sky as a company, it's market place, competition, and commercial info about the company. All of the advice above came in really useful as I was quized on all the above.

    On the day that I arrived I was told there would be a parking space allocated for me but when I arrived I found that they had all been taken so I had to speak with a security guard who was helpful and gave me another space to park in.

    I arrived 40 minutes early as I wasn't sure exactly how long the journey would take me and I checked in at reception and was given a free drinks voucher. There are multiple buildings on the site and one thing I noticed is that everybody seemed happy and friendly which is nice to see especially in a corporate environment where this isn't always the case.

    I was met by the recruiter who was bubbly and welcoming who took me to meet my interviewers who were equally happy and bubbly. My interview was about an hour long and was based around many different competency based questions and relevant experiance. Although the questions were pretty difficult questions, I had prepared to the point that I wasn't hesitant so it made the interview more relaxed and it felt like a conversation as opposed to an interview.
    The 2 men interviewing me were very welcoming and happy which made the interview easier as well and there was quite a lot of laughter in our interview which was refreshing.

    I was told that I would hear back from them within 2 weeks as I was the 2nd person they interviewed and they would inform me about the final stage of the interview. I recieved a call the following day from the recruiter informing me that I had been sucessful in the interview and they would like to formally offer me the postion to my surprise.

    PHP Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Leeds, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sky (Leeds, England (UK)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of 3 stages, phone interview at first with 2 developers, then a tech test, last but not least is the face to face interview with 3 team members, one is the department head, one is a senior developer I had phone interview with and a new developer who i think leads the development team. The whole process took about 2 weeks. Everyone I dealt with during the interview process were super nice and very helpful and kind, which is what draws me to the company. The training programme is also the biggest perk imo

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sky (Newcastle upon Tyne, England (UK)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    It was a very laid back and informal interview, a quick presentation, followed by an ice breaker, a one to one skill based interview and finally a role play.

    Graduate Developer Operations Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sky (London, England (UK)) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Firstly we where tasked on the assessment day to create a cluster computer. The instructions they provided was for old equipment so didn't work with the new equipment they provided. Because of this we couldn't complete the tasks. However we got close as on many occasions I had to fix the problems. Firstly the password given on the image was incorrect. I fixed this by going into bash and changing the password. Secondly no DHCP so I sorted the IP addresses. Thirdly the example files where forgotten about. The assessor did not believe me so I had to be course with him to realise. By the time we fixed all the issues which I mainly fixed it was time up. Very disappointed in them as we worked really hard and it was because of their unprofessionalism we did not complete it. Very unfair assessment.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sky.

    Interview

    Phone interview was generally a positive experience. Never had to do one so was pretty nervous. Being prepared helped a bit but I guess answers weren't specific enough.

    The interview is about being you and how you achieve certains goals in certain situations.
