    Guardian - APM Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Compuware in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview in 2011, consisted of 9 interviews before offers were made.
    - 3 phone call interviews
    - 6 in person interviews (During all day trip to HQ)
    - 1 presentation (15 minutes) about Compuware Gomez software (During all day trip to HQ)

    The in person interviews consisted mostly of logic puzzles, or repeating questions that had been previously asked. The presentation was the hardest, because you were required to "sell" and explain software that you had no knowledge of or documentation. I had a poor time understanding what the software did from reading the website alone, and thus did poor on the presentation.

    After the presentation, there were 25 remaining candidates, 5 to be chosen.

    The whole process took at least 2 months. I've never prepared and worked so hard just for an interview process. It was pretty heartbreaking to go so far and not get an offer. It was a good learning experience, but just know what you are getting yourself into. If you can come out alive, the rewards will set you up good for life.

    Presentation tips:
    Make a slide, covering each software under the Gomez package.
    Practice presenting in front of real people
    Make sure not to talk like a robot

    PDP Java Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Compuware in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online first but did not get a call for two months so applied again through reference and immediately received a call from HR explaining about the interview process and about the company.Soon within two days the HR scheduled one written programming interview in which they had send me some java program to write code.It was simple program to implement 4 functions.Then after a day they scheduled for telephonic technical interview in which i was asked very basic questions like inheritance vs abstract, static method vs static block,polymorphism, final finally finalize,Singleton class, basic unix commands like ls, cd etc...
    After that i received a call for onsite interview where there were 3 rounds
    First round
    1)Writing and executing a program for sorting Person objects based on data members like age and name.
    I did it well and i finished in 40 mins of given one hour

    Second round
    Presentation on any application which i built.
    I showed the demo of my application.Design and flow everything.They will ask to go through the code as well.
    He said that he can understand my confidence from the way i am presenting.
    In this round there were also two analytic questions/puzzles to be solved.
    They were very simple.

    Third round
    Behavioral round
    I was asked to tell me what i would do in situations like under pressure.
    If i want to remove two members from a team whom and how do i choose.
    There were many other questions.

    Every round was for one hour.
    I felt i have done pretty well in all the rounds and i did not expect a reject from Compuware even in my dreams.

    2 days after my onsite interview HR called me and said unfortunately we are proceeding with other candidates.It was shocking

    The package is bit less.It was 60K but since i heard much about t he company i wanted to apply.The onsite experience was good and they treated very well.

    APM Gaurdian Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Detroit, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Compuware in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had two initial rounds over phone.
    1st Interview was by an HR who had a set of questions.
    2nd Interview was taken by one of the people in charge of the APM program, this too had the same questions as the 1st round, but digged a level deeper.
    Got called onsite for final round of interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • Common questions during phone screen.
      1) What is load balancing?
      2) Difference between router and a switch
      3) What is indexing in a database?

      Don't remember other questions...
      Also they ask you how comfortable you are in giving presentations et al.
      Do through study about APM tools and prepare a couple of questions to ask them.

      On the super day, they have 6 rounds of interviews followed by a presentation.
      Interviews are not that stressful, they focus on various areas: Technical (not difficult, should be easy for any decent comps related grad), Project based, Behavioral, something like a quiz, HR and one where someone comes in to tell you how the company is (so all you have to do is listen).

      Presentation is very important...they kind of stress test you....so prepare well.

They asked pretty straight forward questions, like what is difference between String buffer and String builder, difference between hash map and tree map, arraylist and vector, when to use which ? Later they ask me to write a program on there board(There was a white board bhind me where i was sitting). They asked me to sort array items and print smallest and biggest item. They asked my past experience and discussed more about my projects. They asked more questions on OOPS concepts ,polymorphism, encapsulation, etc. In the end they said that they are looking for some more experienced developer. They wanted some one who is very strong with Springs framework...
