  1. Junior Devops Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Serbia
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Insightful (Serbia) in Nov 2021

    Interview

    - This was a junior position for the office in Belgrade, Serbia. The first screening interview was held with the Talent Acquisition Specialist. She presented me a bit about the company, the position I applied for, and everything else I was interested in. After that, we discussed more about my previous experience and current job responsibilities. I was allowed to speak more freely while presenting myself and the discussion went spontaneous at one point. I was told to get feedback until the end of the week I was interviewed. The feedback was already sent two days after the interview and I was invited for the technical interview tomorrow.

    - The next and the last stage was the technical interview. During the first part of the interview, they presented technical details about the position (work responsibilities, tech stack, clients they co-operate with, etc.). The second part of the interview was a practical test of my skillset. The test included a group of questions for a different set of tech fields (Linux CLI, Windows, Networking, Docker, Kubernetes, Bonus questions). Questions were not that complicated and if you won't have big issues if you are already familiar with most of the tech stack related to DevOps. I was required to share my screen while answering those questions on Google Docs. The entire atmosphere was very relaxing and it was nice to see that the interviewer was always trying to lead me to the answer to questions I wasn't familiar with. There was also enough time to go through all questions/answers in the end. Looking at the reaction of both interviewers, I assumed that the test was successful which they also confirmed when I asked afterward. I was told to get feedback within 7 days as other candidates need to go through the test. It would be nice if other employers could use the same method when giving technical tests since this helps candidates to have a better picture of their performance during the call.

    - I have to point out that the communication was quite clear during the entire application process. I received every relevant information during the process (e.g. how would the technical interview look like and that it will take longer than intended). On the other hand, there was a lack of transparency at the end of the selection process.

    - In the end, it took them two weeks to send feedback because they forgot about the public holiday that occurred in the meantime (11 of November). Finally, they decided not to move forward with my application due to minor nuances. It appears that the other candidate had a bit more experience with Docker and DevOps tasks even though this is something that could easily be learned during the work. This ruined my impression of the company and their approach until that last point. I didn't like the final outreach in form of a generic email since I was told that everyone will receive specific feedback during the application process. Also, I am pretty sure that I have known at least 90% of the answers from that test. This was also confirmed by the positive reaction of both interviewers after I asked them about my performance. Looks like they were just bluffing all along.
