Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Very Group (London, England, England)

Interview

It was three stages. First stage was the acquisition team, it's just to get to know you. Second stage is with the hiring manager, the aim is to know whether you're a fit to the company's culture. The final stage, with the hiring manager again and a senior Software engineer, was about the technical aspect of the job. The process was smooth and quick. The guys from the acquisition team will accompany you in every step which was really good

Interview Questions
  • Why Very? Tell me about yourself? and all the technical questions

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Very Group in Mar 2021

Interview

The process was 3 stages and included no more than 2 people on a panel so it wasn't daunting. It was clear each person was probing in to specific areas to learn more about my skills and experience, but the process felt very relaxed, conversational and that the panel were keen to learn about ME as well as my experience. I was also able to feel comfortable enough to talk about areas I felt I lacked experience in and would be keen to develop.

Interview Questions
  • They asked me to give an example of when I'd developed a member of my team.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The Very Group (London, England, England) in Oct 2020

Interview

Had a virtual interview using MS Teams. It started off well, did a mock call which was fine and a great idea to ensure you have customer service experience. Just be aware of the interview questioning as they ask competence based questions, therefore you will need to brush up on your S.T.A.R ( Situation, Task, Action, Result) technique. I understand that this can take people off guard when not knowing they will use this method. The problem with competency based questioning in my option is that it is floured. There's plenty of material online which you can find to prep you for this, even provide you with ways of how to answer competency based questions. All you'd need to do is to make notes of your answers.
