Interview Questions


"During my telephone interview I was asked to explain and describe an SSL and how it works. During the office interviews I was given maths puzzles as well as the usual questions about myself, previous roles and education."
Midlevel, Exeter
"I was asked some competency-based questions in my first interview about planning and organisation. The second interview was more about my interests and previous experiences."
Midlevel, Exeter


"The only question I can recall was about organising a pretend office move, where you had to take into account a variety of deadlines and events that relied upon each other being completed in a set order. It was all very logical, but tested your time organisation skills and ability to adapt to unforeseen changes."
Sparx Content Scientist, Exeter
"Interview questions here included showing specific reasons why I had applied to work at Sparx, and what interested me about it."
Content Scientist, Exeter
"In my interview I was asked about the choices I'd made to study what I did and why throughout my education. I was also asked about my interests outside of my subject. I had to give examples of times I'd encountered certain situations, answer problem-solving questions and tackle teamwork tasks."
