    Java Developer-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Anonymer Bewerber im Vorstellungsgespräch in Bristol, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)

    Negative Erfahrung
    Leichtes Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 4 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Mai 2016 bei OVO Energy (Bristol, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Process took four weeks from application to rejection. This included 6 hours of interviewing, which included a 30 minute phone interview, a 1 hour 30 minute face to face interview, a 2 hour code test on Codility, a 1 hour pair programming exercise, a 30 minute interview with HR, and a 30 minute interview with a hiring manager.

    Overall the process was inefficient and repetitive and gave me a negative impression of Ovo.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Februar 2019 bei OVO Energy (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Two weeks from initial contact to job offer. Highly communicative throughout the process. First step was a screening call with the hiring manager, then more in-depth call with the Engineering Manager talking about experience and some lighter technical discussion. Final step was a 3h face-to-face: one hour code challenge, one hour of system design/architecture discussion, and one hour for a behavioural/competency interview. The 3 hours were hard and I got a good grilling on my experiences from people who clearly knew what they were doing and what they were looking for. Thankfully, the hiring manager had made it abundantly clear throughout the process what the role was about and what it required so I was able to prepare effectively.

    Software Engineer-Vorstellungsgespräch

    Leichtes Gespräch

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über einen Personalvermittler beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im November 2017 bei OVO Energy (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    The process consisted of a CV screening, then a phone call with an engineering manger and finally several interviews on-site.

    The phone call was a brief introduction to OVO Energy, some simple questions about what I've done before and a screening on basic Scala knowledge (e.g. difference between Scala trait and Java interface).

    The on-site interviews consisted of a pair-programming exercise, a discussion with some engineers about a project I had worked on in the past, a HR interview and an interview/discussion with an engineering manager. The pair-programming exercise could be done in Java or Scala and was a 'real' task relevant to an energy company (i.e. it was not to implement merge sort that runs in O(1) with your eyes closed). The engineer discussion was fairly relaxed, but be sure to choose an example that isn't too simple so you have some complexities to talk about.

    Overall, quite a pleasant interview process.

    • OVO Energy is structured into independent, vertical teams to ensure no dependencies when delivering solutions. This can cause duplication of work across the teams, but is something we accept. What are your thoughts on this approach?   Frage beantworten

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte mehr als 3 Monate. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im August 2016 bei OVO Energy.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Very inefficient. About a week after applying online I got invited to a phone interview. Very informal, seemed quite unprepared. About a week later I got invited to a face-to-face interview where I had to prepare a presentation, answer a number of logic questions, and then I was left with a laptop to complete a number of tasks alone. The interviewers were very nice, and made me feel at ease. When they left me with the laptop they did not com back until the end of the time allotted for me to complete the tasks. However, the laptop was not working properly, so I could not complete the tasks, and had no one to ask about it until the time was up. They admitted a fault with the laptop, but gave me no chance to complete the tasks. I got invited to a second face-to-face interview. One with a manager, who asked very vague questions, followed by questions by a HR woman, who seemed quite unnecessary and asked questions I had already answered. They told me I would hear back ASAP on whether my application had been successful or not, and would be offered feedback on my application even if unsuccessful. This was nearly 3 months ago, and after emailing the company three times now, they have still not given me an update on my application and have been very unhelpful. Very disappointed.

    Quite a lengthy process. Telephone interview with line manager, followed by onsite interview, followed by logical assessment that was similar to an IQ test, followed by three more separate interviews in one day; these interviews were with HR, senior management and the director.

    one major bit of advice - prepare for the question 'how humble are you?'. Then an offer. Then a written offer. The employee handbook is not published and therefore they can spring lots of surprises on you e.g. that they won't pay your mobile bill even if you're travelling between locations.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 5 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei OVO Energy (Notting Hill Gate, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Phone call with HR, phone call with dev, 3 hour on-site interview including a coding challenge, infrastructure interview, interview with the boss and interview with HR.

    It took a long time to get the interview arranged.

    The people there seemed knowledgeable but one set in particular clearly had no interest in interviewing me - the hour was mostly awkward silences until I decided to ask them about their architecture instead, just to fill the void.

    Overall though pretty standard tech interview process.

    Bewerbung

    Ich habe mich über eine Vermittlungsagentur beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 3 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert im Dezember 2018 bei OVO Energy (London, England (Vereinigtes Königreich)).

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    1 hour interview with Hiring Manager,
    Then 1.5 hour interview with 2 key stakeholders,
    Then final interview with HR and the rest of the Recruitment Team.

    Whilst I did meet a lot of people - I actually found it useful to get each interviewer's perspective on the opportunities and challenges. Everyone that I met was lovely, passionate about the organisation and seemed to have a true drive towards continuous iteration.

    The process was quite long, but it did allow me a really good insight into Ovo as a business, and meet a number of different people along the way. Everyone who interviewed people was very kind and welcoming. I would rate the difficulty as 'average'

    Ich habe mich online beworben. Der Vorgang dauerte 2 Wochen. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei OVO Energy.

    Vorstellungsgespräch

    Face to face interview with usual job specific and CV questions with a couple of pointless estimation and logic ones thrown in too.

    Interview was late in the day, which is never ideal and the interviewer was clearly tired and not as engaged as i would have expected (even yawned a few times during the interview which really set the tone).

    HR communication at OVO seems sketchy at best and this has been commented on in a few interview reviews. This is disrespectful and will eventually impact your ability to recruit worthy candidates.
