What are the Best and Worst things about your job?
From my experience, managers are reasonable and flexible. Mine is very supportive and cares about my future.
Possibility to do rotations within the graduate program and even later (if you can negotiate it).
As this is a large company, the organization does not always make sense.
Depending on the department, there can be many contractors which cost more but care less than internals.
What is the annual salary for this role?
Starting salary: I'd rather not say
Current salary: I'd rather not say
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Do not get afraid about your grades, I was not asked about my final grade for my diploma or for the grades report (only the diploma itself).
Having experiences abroad or at least an interest in traveling seemed to be a common point in between the selected candidates.
Before applying, train yourself for the online tests. They seem easy but the time pressure can make you fail if you did not train at least once beforehand. You can find material online.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be true to yourself, do not try to be someone else.
Prepare for questions about your career plans and high level questions relevant to the position you apply for (if you apply for an IT position, be prepared to talk about new technologies).
Be interested in your interviewers and always prepare questions for the end of the interview.
I was asked about which application I have installed recently on my smartphone.
