    Business Analyst Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Valtech (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Lengthy interview process, visited offices twice, and two telephone interviews. Inefficient process. Was hired twice, accepted then told position was on hold because lack of funding. They called back and extended offer again only to rescind 3 days before start date because of funding. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected, standard questions where you describe past experiences, specific jobs, etc. Questions like, what's your best project, worst, and why. Should be prepared to use whiteboard to explain a process or model. For example, if you know business process modeling or web architecture, you should know how to draw it out.   Answer Question

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Copenhagen (Denmark)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Valtech (Copenhagen (Denmark)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Organised by HR, interview via Skype.

    Interview itself was comprehensive - worked through my background, how I manage teams and clients, how I operate in an agency environment (which was unlikely to suit me) and how they work internally. Good overview of culture too.

    Negative experience because they promised to follow up and haven't bothered to do so, even after I chased them. If they're not interested in progressing then fair enough, but a professional organisation should have the manners and courtesy to at least let you know!

    Senior Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Valtech (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Agencies:
    Excellent, They cannot be faulted.

    Process:
    A Three stage Process: Phone screening (30 mins) - Face To face (2h 30mins) - Panel Presentation ( Scheduled for 2 hours - finished after 1)

    The first two stages of the interview process were very thorough and quick within a week. These went over values and approach to projects. Very Standard.

    The final stage interview took 3 weeks to arrange, due to Valtech scheduling complexities.

    For the final stage, a Pre Project, Early Stage and In-Flight scenario was briefed, with the caveat that there were no wrong or right answers. As this was the first brief of its kind, I had to make a lot of assumptions on ways of working.

    The interview ended after one hour with a Senior member of staff, of 8 years service to Valtech (who had not been involved in the process to this point) requested the meeting end after clearly demonstrating irritation/anger. The gentleman, never returned.

    The interview was finished due to not thorough screening through the first 3 hours of interviews.

    Interview Tips - Candidates
     - Ways of thinking are paramount the Valtech, if you do not think they same way the interview will end. Valtech do not offer training and expect you to join the role immediately with zero guidance.
    - Valtech are pure Agile and continuous delivery. No Sprints.
    - Budgets are secondary to discuss, even initial guidance at kick off. This leads me to believe clients are retained with flexible budgets and delivery time scales.
    - Valtech work under software quality (Unit Test and Peer reviews) being a standard task, not to be tracked or estimated separately.

    Interview Tips - Agencies
    It was noted by Valtech that their pre-screening needs to be more thorough, i agree, especially after 3 hours I went through. I do wish them the best as the first two interviews were with highly professional and courteous gentlemen.

    My tips would be.
    - Get Valtechs corporate and delivery values, a way of thinking is VERY subjective. I recommend getting a simple questionnaire at the application stage.
    - Myers Briggs test, this will assist in ways of working, especially logic process.
    - Involve all senior stakeholders at initial stage, especially the gentleman with 8 years experience.
    - The brief needs to request examples of work, I recommend briefs, plans and especially scoping.

    Overall the process was long and confusing, my experience was a lesson learnt by both parties. I truly think Valtech need to be more thorough in.
    - Pre-Screening
    - Brief Clarity
    - Interview Techniques. It is highly unprofessional to simply walk out of an interview and not give the courtesy of a goodbye. Especially when both parties time have been wasted, interviews are reciprocal.

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Valtech (Stockholm, Stockholm (Sweden)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It is best on 4 steps. First is to just go there and talk with the manager and second is to just talk with developers to see if we work in personality. After that it is a code assignment and a case presentation of the assignment. After that it is a discussion of the offer and contract.
