    Test Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BSI Group.

    Interview

    Approached by an engineering recruitment agency regarding the position. They forwarded my CV to BSi. I heard nothing for a month. I was then invited to interview at an assessment day.
    There were several elements to the process. I was there nearly 5 hours in the end.
    There was a presentation, a traditional interview, a competency interview, an observed team exercise, a practical test and an electrical test.
    The process was fairly intense but went well. There was a lunch buffet provided at the end which was a nice touch. There were managers, test managers, engineers and several HR people present and interviewing. The interviewers outnumbered the interviewees about 3 or 4 to one
    Originally there were meant to be a dozen or so people attending this assessment/interview morning but only a fraction turned up for some strange reason! Maybe they knew something about the job/company we didn't and changed their minds or there was a big breakdown in communication?!

    I was offered the position within 24 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • What salary are you looking for?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    This was minimal and limited. I recommend negotiating hard and be prepared to walk away if not 100% happy. It is unlikely you will get a pay rise some some time. There is no annual inflation rise, only an achievement rise for some.
