J'ai postulé via une agence de recrutement. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à BGL Group (Sunderland, North East England, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en mars 2019.
Initially set as a 3-stage interview with success at the given stage leading to the next stage.
1st - Telephone Interview
2nd - Technical Test / Programming Challenge
3rd - Face-to-face, technical interview
Introduced a 4th stage into the process after the 3rd to discuss Agile working practices.
Overall a good, fair, robust process designed to ensure viable candidates progress.
1st Stage - half hour chat about the company and asked me a few things about my approaches to s/w development.
2nd stage of the process was quite a good challenge. It was time-boxed so depending on when you're first given it this can be a little daunting. I saw the brief on Friday morning, couldn't start until Friday evening (after work) and then had to tackle it and submit for the Monday. In the end I had until Sunday afternoon and juggled it against immutable commitments so it's something to bear in mind.
3rd stage - Interviewed by a Tech Lead and Senior Developer. Both very friendly and the interview took a conversational approach discussing my experience and how I'd tackle certain scenarios. I was asked to walk through my technical solution and SAR (STAR), competency based questions were also covered. Overall a positive
At this stage I thought the process was concluded but I was asked to attend a further, 4th stage meeting to discuss Agile principles and practices.
4th Stage - less formal, in a noisy coffee shop. Didn't go into too much detail regarding Agile processes I'd used in the past, more questions about why I was looking to leave my current employer and could I handle that transition.
I was given an offer, which I declined, as it wasn't as competitive as the package I have currently. Reason for lower offer (lack of Agile practice and delivery) didn't quite ring true as anyone starting in a new position will need to transition to that place's way of working and it would be by far the easiest part of that role to pick up anyway.
Perhaps it's a company tactic to try and low-ball people at the last stage by picking an area to target as being 'weak', only BGL know.
Overall a good experience. I liked the company's approach to Corporate Social Responsibility and had a few great ideas which I wanted to take to senior management. Looked like they were heading in the right direction and their new offices in Sunderland will likely tap into a rich seam of resource up here in the North :)
Good luck with your BGL application!
