    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IRESS (Melbourne) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, got later contacted by their recruiter, first to have a talk and then to arrange a meeting with the interviewer, started with some questions about my experience and CV, then 4 or 5 pages of theory questions that will have to be solved in 20 minutes. I applied for a Java role and not a single question in the exam about Java

    Then got to a second interview where I completed a programming task, then had to take a codility test online. Seemed like a useless tool for recruiting people, even the interviewer said he got 20% and even with that he has a job in there and interview people

    The interview was unorganized, didn't received any feedback about any of the tasks and was only a waste of time. I didn't even get a proper rejection until I asked about my application

    The questions ask were pretty straight forward and they would prefer hiring someone with a good character and personality. The hiring manager was very nice and knowledgeable. Onboarding process was pretty quick.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at IRESS in August 2018.

    Interview

    Very long time between application and first contact ( at least 4 months). Once the recruitment process started the internal recruiter was fantastic.
    Two interviews with two interviewers each.
    From the two interviews 3/4 of the individuals interviewing were peers to the role.
    One in person and one video conferenced in for each interview
    Both interviews scheduled for outside of normal office hours.
    Line manager to the role did not ask any interview questions at all
    Uncomfortable setting

    Interview Questions
