    Junior Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The White Company (London, England (UK)) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and had my first interview two weeks later with one of the senior technologists. The interview was about 45 minutes long and was a laid back chat about what the job role would involve and the type of person they were looking for as well as informing me of general company workings.

    After the interview, I received a call the same day to book a second interview with two other senior technologists. This interview lasted about 40 minutes and focused more on finding out if I was suitable for the role by asking about my experience and why I wanted the job. Both interviews were relaxed and pleasant and I received a call two days later to inform me that I had got the job.

    I was kept well informed throughout the process and I received prompt responses to everything.
