Very in-depth, which can be a lot of work as you have so much to prepare for, but it gets the best people for the job, so overall it's a good process

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Softcat

Interview

Over zoom due to the Covid restrictions. Applied online with first stage screening via a record your answers on video to a website style. Very impersonal and not a good experience. However, I did pass and the two people interviewing were very talkative and easy to get along with making it a pleasant second stage.

Interview Questions
  • They will follow up on the pre screening website answers so be ready to go more in depth. Other than that very standard questions.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Softcat (Bristol, England, England) in Mar 2021

Interview

PI and behavioural assessment - online Assessment Centre - online Panel Interview - remote The first part of the interview was great, and the tasks set off the back of the assessment centre were suitable. However, I feel that remote interviewing is a challenging process for a panel interview and I don't think they accounted for the candidate not being used to such a change. I was left feeling that the preparation I had done was completely wasted and they accused me of not having done any work and just reading for their website. I find this unacceptable especially when the feedback was positive from the Softcat employees (even discussing next steps). The emotional reaction of the recruiter was not of the same tone and was hugely accusatory that I was just reading their website to them and hence wasting their time!

Interview Questions
  • General description of my background, without necessarily asking directly about my history (conversational style) Company information and history Why I am interested in working there

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Softcat (Manchester, England, England) in Feb 2021

Interview

Firstly fill out application form, then Behavior test, video interview and assessment center. This is how far I got. I fit both culturally and academically and was still rejected, after weeks of interview stages, based on activities irrelevant to job position.
