    Interview process

    On the phone the lady made it seem like I had a massive chance of getting into the job and work for themselves. When it came down to the video and answering the questions on a timed video I think the time was very off putting as I couldn't construct a good answer to what they were asking me, and with dyslexia, i found this was unfair. in the end, i dint get another conversation just an email telling me I had not met the standards.

    Most difficult question

    they were all quite difficult for the time frame they had put together, and I had mentioned to the woman on the phone before about my dyslexia.

    Interview tips

    maybe make sure that people with a learning disability are not discriminated on the video time limit, give them a little longer or even give the question out to the candidate and then let them have time to form their answer together and let them press when they are ready to record.

    Interview process

    Phone interview: Got asked questions like why I would be good for the role, my interest in IT, my grades etc.

    Video interview: got asked to describe personality, would I be willing to be geographically flexible, what I like about IT, and current IT events.

    Assessment day: Had to give a little speech about yourself, informal just to see your confidence I imagine. Had to do tests: there were a maths test, a set theory test (you got info in a booklet) an IT test which asked you things like what does HTML stand for etc? The tests were fine, they don't expect amazing results on the IT because you get trained on it.
    There were also three 5 minute interviews. Things like: which of the values are you most like? Do you think change is always good? Would you prefer to complete a task on time which is okay or not on time which is perfect? Why FDM? Apple or Android?

    Most difficult question

    Most difficult question would be the ones I wasn't expecting. Like Apple or Android? Whether change is always good, whether I would prefer to get a task done on time or perfectly?

    Interview tips

    If you do get the job (like I did) be aware of the contract you are signing. As there are a lot of stipulations that you may not like or be feasible. The assessment day is fun and a good experience all around. Just relax, do the tests and try be logical and reasoning when answering the questions.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    The assessment centre was fine. A very long day though. The tests were fine, the people were nice.
