The interview process was long, but they explain you the whole process beforehand so you know what to expect. The good thing is that they help you prepare to every step and give proper and honest feedback. Take the cultural interviews serious, they really want to sure that you're a good fit. The technical interviews are not easy, but they only want to know if you're a good engineer or not, no need to expect 'tricky' questions or silly tests. The bad thing is that usually they don't interview you for a certain role, but constantly looking for good engineers and if you succeed, a board will decide which team could you join in (at least back then they did this). Although I got positive feedback and 'passed' all the interviews, this board could not find a position at that time. It worth mentioning that it was a bit after the acquisition by Ctrip, when a lot of things has changed suddenly and they were sorry about it - but it did not give back the days I took off to prepare and to attend the interviews.

Suggestion to SkyScanner: Please DO NOT WASTE OUR TIME TO ACCOMPLISH SUCH LENGTHY ASSIGNMENT, IF YOU ARE JUDGING ONLY ON BASIS OF THE INTERVIEW WHICH DOES NOT TELL MUCH ABOUT OUR ABILITY. 1st Round: Initial cal with the recruiter for 30 mins 2nd Round: Building one small page within 3 hours 3rd Round: 2 hours of interview about your past experience and technical background 4th Round: Some system designing round (Not sure) It was lengthy. I have got a very good review after submitting the assignment then I got email from the recruiter that I got selected for the next round and on that round I was tried of answering similar kind of questions from 2 different engineers. They rejected me even after answering all the questions properly, if I would have given my time and effort to some other company definitely I would get a good result.

Preguntas de entrevista
  • They were asking the same question in different ways: - Tell me about your most complex project and what was the complexity, hw did your resolve that - Tell me about the most difficult situation you faced in work - Tell me How did you resolve conflict with your team mate ect

Entrevista

Initial coding task that doesn't take long to finish, which is great, followed by 2 interviews one involving cultural questions, another involving questions about technical projects I did in the past. Finally the on-site interview consisting of culture interview, and 2 system design interviews. The culture interview was one of the best and toughest nice had the interviewer was very experienced. One of the system design interviews was conducted by a manager, which caused some issues when I received his feedback, there were some bits of the feedback that didn't make sense at all. One feedback was "you decided to go with a monolith when microservices would better suit" which is quite a personal opinion and wouldn't be mentioned by a sincere and experienced engineer.

Entrevista

There was long test task for 4 hours, then two interviews with engineering managers. About Depth of Expertise and Culture which last for 2 hours. During 2 weeks there was not single contact person. Contact persons have changed several times. That felt a bit messy. One of engineering managers did not focus on what I say and promised 15 minutes turned into an hour. The one thing I really appreciated is the feedback they honestly provided

The interview process took +/- 1 month. First contact, a 15 minutes call with HR to explain more about the process and the job. Then, a relative easy test to do at home, Hackerrank style. After the code reviews, schedules 2 interviews of 60 minutes each: - Culture: values align with the company - Depth of Expertise: this one is deep talk about a project you worked in the past and some other questions related to distributed systems. After approved, I had now 3 interviews of 45 minutes each: - 2 Hard Problems: two sessions with one problem each. where you have to design the system in a scalable way. As I was remote, I had to use the Whiteboard feature from Zoom. - Culture: with a Senior Engineering Manager to understand how you work and more about values. The process was fast, the HR always keeping you updated and I enjoyed talking with all of them.

Entrevista

Short chat about with the recruiter the company over the phone. No CV, no face to face introduction, then a Hackerrank test. There wasn't really an interview, no chance to see the office, see the manager etc. just a rigid code test - a test you'd expect from an organization that is looking for coding machines. They learn a lot about you before you get to learn anything about them (other than marketing slides).

Preguntas de entrevista
  • 70 min Hackerrank test: write a code that receives employees and his/her manager (employee-manager pairs) from the stdin. Once this input sequence is done (empty input row?), Then read two employees' name from the stdin, and tell who is their common manager.

Entrevista

I didn't want to write a review, because I was mad for so long, but I guess someone, especially Skyscanner, can benefit from this feedback. I've had interviews with big 4 companies (which Skyscanner is kinda trying to copy IMO) and if you expect as much as big 4 companies and pay much less, you should at least try harder with the recruiting process. Main problems: - inititial interview was robotic and impersonal, the recruiter was reading questions from a script and writing down my answers without even looking at me. At this point I was already pissed off, but decided to continue the process anyway. - assessment centre: I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Comparing again to other interviews I've had, recruiters usually tell you what sort of questions to prepare for - algorithms and data structures, trivia questions, system design, domain-specific problems. Not at Skyscanner! You are left in the dark. I was prepared for something completely different, which caused me great stress and in the end, I didn't do so well. - another minor, but very unpleasant experience was that in one of the group interviews, I was the only girl in my group and that usually doesn't bother me, but oh boy, this time was exceptional. The atmosphere was super competitive and every time I tried to suggest something, I was interrupted by someone, dismissing my ideas. The moderator was looking at his phone all the time, seeming super bored. I started panicking that I will get a negative assessment because I wasn't allowed to say anything, so to be finally heard and show what I know, I almost had to raise my voice and tell people to shut up & let me finish. Not a situation I enjoy to be in. The classical gender bias problem I guess, and it's not exactly the company's fault, but that shouldn't happen at an interview. However, I did well on this part, despite the fact it felt terrible. Overall I'm left with a very bad taste in my mouth and I doubt I will be applying again.
