    1. Internship Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Sweden
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Difficult Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at King (Sweden)


      The whole process took 3 months. 2 months and 2 weeks later, I was suddenly asked to submit the test for the internship exam in 5 days, including weekends. I was out of the country and a single mom with a child and a baby to take care of, so I decided I could not submit the test on time, so I told the guy who works in their Young Career dep in Spain, about my situation, and asked him to extend the submission date a little. But he did not respond. (Incidentally, the message that requested the test said that he totally understood to discuss an extension of the submission date.) Then I hurried back to my country and finished the test content in 1 and a half day, and even after I sent the data apologetically, there was no reply. I became anxious and sent a confirmation email a week later to see if the data and test had been received by the employer, but he did not reply again. The next day I received a rejection message from an automated robot. No word or anything about how the test went. I think I was treated very badly. What do they or does he think of people's time? It took 3 months, 3 times of ignoring my contact and ending up with no favorable feedback for the last test. I am a single mom and I had to ask someone to help me with my child and baby while I finished the test. It was the worst hiring process I have ever been through. I think the guy in charge of Early career department should have handled it like a decent recruiter before checking his social media.

      UI test. He asked me to fix some screens of some games, and send it back in 5 days

    Stockholm Pride Parade 2023 🌈✨ It all began in the Stockholm Kingdom where Kingsters prepped for the day ahead — face paints, beading and flag prep! We then took to the streets in style as we marched for what we believe in at King, building and embracing a safe space for all. We continue to be amazed by our wonderful Kingsters. Thank you again to all those who were involved, especially the Royal Unicorns LGBTQIA+ Employee Network!
