    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hythe, Kent, South East England, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Holiday Extras (Hythe, Kent, South East England, England (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online by submitting a CV and covering letter through Holiday Extra's own form on their
    recruitment website. There were several stages to the interview process:

    - A telephone interview where we discussed the role, team working and my interest in the job
    - A technical task to be completed from home, taking roughly a working day
    - Face-to-face interview with prospective line manager and HR representative
    - Face-to-face interview with technical staff to discuss previously completed task and experience
    - 'Meet the team' panel chat with a cross-section of technical staff
    - 1:1 pairing on a current piece of work with an existing member of staff.

    At each stage everyone was friendly and approachable making it a lot less stressful as interviewee. The process felt very thorough which gave me confidence in the other team members I could be working with.

    The whole process took 2-3 months in total and there were points where I didn't hear any feedback for 2-3 weeks. This did make me think that I had not been successful.
