Interview

Around june/july I had an interview with two engineers for an hour which was splitted for HR questions and coding part. HR part was typical HR questions and coding question was easy difficulty to write a pseudocode. Nothing serious. Once you pass this initial stage, next stage was at assessment centre with several other candidates. I still don't understand why companies still follow this 80's style hiring process, just follow FAANG style hiring process. Interviewers said recruiter will get in touch with me however after this round I was ghosted. Bad interview experience with Kainos, also interviewers need to prepare beforehand for a technical round instead of candidates needs to fiddle around to set the tools and share their screen for a pseudocode round. I mean notepad/teams doesn't allow to collaborate on real time so coderpad or hackerrank are the getgo so please prepare prior for an interview. Interviews are the two ways not only for an organisation, these types of interviews actually setting a bad impressions for future candidates. Anyway I had no intention to join kainos I was interviewing to see the kainos the interview process and for the experience.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kainos in Jun 2022

Interview

I was contacted by the internal recruiter to discuss the position, which was described as fully remote. I was invited to the first stage interview, where I met the Senior Product Owner and she told me that there was a requirement of being present in the office at least once a quarter. Following the interview, I contacted the recruiter to explain I couldn’t meet this requirement - he told me he would speak to the team to see what could be done in terms of fully remote and that he would let me know the following day if this was not possibile. In the meantime, we agreed I would continue with the interview process. Over the following week, I worked on the presentation for the second stage. I was then contacted just 10 minutes before the interview by the recruiter, where he explained to me the position would require quarterly travel to the office.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Kainos (London, England)

Interview

I applied online and recieved a call from a recruiter after a few days which is obviously nice and I was progressed to interview shortly after. During the interview I met two members of the team. They asked basic competency based questions. One of the interviewers was clearly distracted during this, often looking away from the camera and talking to someone. On several occasions he lounged back in the couch he was sitting at which I found pretty unprofessional. Imgine if I did that? I was not given any opportunity to ask questions at all which is an important part to me! It has now been three weeks and I have heard nothing. However, even if something did come from this I wouldn't be progressing further as the overall vibe I got was not good, and too many red flags. With such a "people focus" you would think they'd have a candidate focused selection process. If this is how they treat TA interviews I'd not want to see how the treat others.

Felt like a slightly casual interview over Microsoft teams. It took about 45 minutes and they asked about 5 or 6 questions. It was just general about my thought process.

Interview

The interviews were more of a conversation to gauge you and your working style and skills. I did however also feel like they were trying to find the right person rather than grilling about skills which can always be improved and taught. Everyone I interacted with from start to finish was very nice, which made me feel even better about the company.

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kainos (Belfast, Northern Ireland) in Feb 2022

Interview

Two stages in the interview process. The first interview consisted of competency based questions which required the S.T.A.R technique to answer. If you do well in the first interview you will be invited to the second stage interview which was a coding exercise with a given problem you might find on leetcode. The hiring manager made the second technical interview feel rushed as he wanted me to start writing up my solution before I had taken time to fully understand the problem. He did not come across as somebody I would like to work with due to his negative expressions. I recevied confirmation I did not get the job one month later and still to this day have not received feedback when requested multiple times.
