    Site Reliability Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Société Générale in June 2017.

    Interview

    It's a lengthy process. I applied for the position through LinkedIn and I got a call from recruiter. Then she submitted my profile and I got there feed back after a one and half month for the Telephonic round. It was an easy interview and straightforward. It lasted for 20 minutes and I got the feedback by the weekend so they want to do Skype interview. I prepared for the Skype, one the day of the interview they sent me a message saying they couldn't do Skype and they'll do telephonic instead. I said okay and the interview started but starting from the first question they weren't clear what they're asking. In between the interview they're discussing with each other what to ask and it clearly shows they are not prepared for the interview. The main issue was the Accent. I was interviewing for the position in NY but a french lady interviewed but I couldn't understand what she's speaking as the questions are mainly based on Linux I was not able to understand what she's is asking and there is a continuous disturbance in the call. Coming to questions I know the company work with traders but I'm pretty much technical person no where related to trading and stock, they're expecting in depth knowledge of stock market and trading. What's wrong with them? They have my resume and clearly explained my work experience and educational qualifications but they didn't ask at least one question related to it. They didn't sound like they are willing to do the interview. Working with this company is pretty much waste of time.

    M&A Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I met with 4 people and the interview was 1.5 hours long. Almost all technical questions bar 'tell me about yourself', zero interest in motivations or FIT. My interviewers were unfriendly and patronising. While this was an internship position...they expected you to come in with the experience of an analyst. If you're an excellent modeller but extremely rude and arrogant then SG is an excellent fit for you. If you're a human being with feelings...search elsewhere!

    Developer Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Société Générale (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    A coding test followed by an interview with a team leader and associate. The team leader very briefly introduced the role and the team and let me to introduce myself. After that, he asked me about any development experience that I had and drilled quite deep for those experience. The second half of the interview was about OO design. You need to be familiar with the OO concepts because the interviewer will trick you. And for a few questions I do not think they make much sense because the interviewer was not well prepared and he wanted you not being able to answer correctly. The last question is a brain teaser follwed by Q&A. During Q&A, for every questions that I asked, the interviewer never replied in detail with fewer than two sentences. This seems so unprofessional.
