Just wanted to share my Interview experience with you all. I applied Dot almost two weeks ago for SC (with 4 years technical implementation experience and 5 years consultancy experience in Asia and Europe). Got a call just two days after the submission and the one who called asked general questions (current work, experience, skills, little about qualifications, and typical points: why do you want to leave etc etc, and expectations.
The first call was last for about 20 minutes and after two days got another call and they wanted to have my first round interview with one of the SMs. The first round went well and SM asked many technical and business related questions and some scenarios (I felt he was technically sound), and some analytical questions (guess he wanted to see my analytical skills), he also gave some scenarios (many of them were real world and some were I had experienced in my consultancy life) . The interview was supposed to finish in an hour but last for two and half hours with lot more interesting discussions (it was really an informal talk, but with much business related issues). He concluded the interview saying "you probably will fit in to our infrastructure security team" (which gave me a green light ).
After the interview I asked him, in case if I get selected what is the next step (I was so scared to see these Assessment canters as many of you have faced). He said, for some fresh candidates and experience hires they do assessments and for well experienced professionals they don't, for experienced hires the next round is with Partner.
Next day I got a call from Dot and asking me to see the HR and fixed a time for a meeting (next week W’day), which mean either I have not done well in the interview (I feel I did well anyway ) or HR wanted to discuss the compensation matters.
Can someone PLEASE help me for the following concerns?
Seeing what I have written here, what is your guess, have they selected me or just dropped and HR wanted to see me and say SORRY?
Given the scenario, if they wanted to see me for compensation matters, what is your advice and what should I expect (my current is 40K+10% Bonus and I will be based in Manchester if I get selected)
Please help !!!!!
