    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at 888 Spectate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are great - a really friendly, diverse and experienced group of people who are always willing to help.
    I have found career progression/upskilling is important here. I have attended numerous training sessions on many varying topics and became a manager after a few years.
    HR and management have been extremely supportive during personal issues. They also try to ensure we have enough play time to go with the hard work - summer parties, christmas parties, go-karting, quizzes, coffee mornings etc.

    Cons

    None that I can think of!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at 888 Spectate.

    Interview

    Worst interview experience I’ve ever had. First round phone screen. Then they gave me some coding exercises. After I completed that, I was invited to an onsite interview to discuss the program I submitted. The way they asked questions was like treating a criminal. I felt deeply uncomfortable and upset being questioned like that. I was literally crying after the interview and immediately decided I would never work there no matter what.
