    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Utrecht (Netherlands)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Bol.com (Utrecht (Netherlands)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Codility test before 'screening' interview with a manager. Technical assignment before technical interview with another manager and a developer. 3 IQ/comprehension tests. Background checks before signing a contract. Required certificate of good conduct from the Justice Department.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered 'medior' instead of senior position and corresponding reduced salary. Only 1 year contract with a 1 month trial period. Insanely strict employee handbook with rules for everything. Unpleasant and archaic recruitment process that reduces humans to numbers.
