    Senior Full Stack Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Briston, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Redington Ltd. (Briston, England (UK)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The first stage was a casual chat with a senior engineer, who obviosuly was very skilled at what he did. It was slightly distracting contacting this type of casual chat in a busy canteen, but I got a very detailed view of their technology.

    There was a technical test which had to be completed in 72 hours.

    The second interview was a video confernce, the two interviewers asked questions covering the submitted technical test and general technical questions.

    Throughout the process the talent recruiter was great and even though I did not get the position this was one of the first times I actually got some helpful feedback.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Redington Ltd. (London, England (UK)) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Standard phone screening followed by
    a face to face interview where I talked about my experience and portfolio. I thought the Senior Designer was engaging and inspiring.
    Second interview was meet some members of the team which I thought went ok - I could have done better on some scenario questions, no doubt.
    Only disappointment was that I had to figure out their decision from the radio silence.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Redington Ltd. (London, England (UK)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    The whole process was more than 3 months. I applied in October 2018, did online tests and video interview in November and December. The assessment center was in early February, 2019. Overall, the experience was amazing. On the assessment day, interviewees had the opportunity to meet current employees and learn about their current roles. Everyone was nice and friendly. After 2 days, the company emailed about the final interview. Though I didn't make it to the final, I really enjoyed the experience. Redington provided a constructive feedback shortly after, which is extremely helpful for future interviews.

    Investment Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Redington Ltd. (London, England (UK)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    I applied to this firm online in October 2017 and didn't hear back about a video interview until January 2018. The video interview was fairly simple (the one that caught me off-guard was 'describe standard deviation in layman's terms'), and heard back nearly 2 months later about an assessment centre. This stage was comprised of a 2:1 interview, 5 minute presentation about yourself, and group exercise, all fairly standard stuff though the interview was more technical than I was expecting (practice market sizing and read up about the pensions industry). The final round was 2 back to back interviews with senior members of the team and it was just laid-back conversation really. The process was fine I suppose but took absolutely ages from application to final decision (too dragged out for a small firm IMO) and their feedback (which I had to chase up) was a bit questionable.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Redington Ltd. (London, England (UK)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Was very uplifting. Everyone that I came in contact with was very nice, from the receptionist to the Vice President. They made me feel comfortable when starting the interview (offering me tea or coffee). I was interviewed by a Vice President and a member of the graduate scheme, which made the interview a lot less nerve racking. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
