    Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Leeds, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming (Leeds, England (UK)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was referred by an existing employee rather than applying for a specific role, Tom from the Talent team contacted me and invited me for an interview. I was initially interviewed by the Technical Lead and another senior member of my team, which was unlike any interviews I've had before - it was very relaxed and unstressful, more like a chat with peers. We talked about technical things but it was definitely not in the format of a test or set questions, much more informal. This was supposed to be quite quick but we ended up chatting for almost two hours because we were all enjoying the conversation. A few days later, I was invited back for a second interview with the CISO and again this was done on an informal basis - he was very personable and the whole thing was remarkably stress free. At the end of the interview, he said he'd be happy to hire me and then passed me back on to the Talent team who worked out salary details, etc. and confirmed my offer. Because of the nature of the company, there were some background and identity check to do before I could start - even so the whole thing took less than two weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no 'clever' questions if you like, it was just talking about what things I'd done before and where I wanted to be going in future. I felt (as I always do) that it's more important to be honest and enthusiastic rather than claiming to know things that you don't - you can always learn what you don't know if you have the right attitude, and everyone goes through the same thing when starting a new role.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming (Leeds, England (UK)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Amy O'Shea, the Talent Experience Coordinator, was very accommodating and helpful. Not only that she provided thorough information regarding the interview process to help me prepare, but she was also very supportive and considerate. I felt taken care of throughout the whole process.

    The phone interviews were unlike the usual question-and-answer type of interview; it was more like a casual conversation, which helped me to relax and deliver thought-out answers. I was lucky enough to be invited for an in-person interview. During the interview, everyone was very welcoming and kind. Again, the atmosphere was very friendly and casual. Personally, it helped with conveying my personality across.

    Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Leeds, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sky Betting & Gaming (Leeds, England (UK)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was one of the best I have ever experienced. From the moment the skybet recruitment team contacted me on linkedin, to arranging the interviews and supporting me with prep. Their website is full of useful information about the company and the recruitment team were very knowledgeable about the role. I originally had a telephone interview with the recruitment team to talk through my CV, I then had a face to face interview and finally an informal chat with the recruiting manager before receiving my offer. The final chat was as much for me to feel comfortable the role was right for me, as it was for the manager to make a decision. It was a great experience and I was so pleased to receive an offer.
