    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at EPAM in October 2014.

    Interview

    I am one of most active trainees, so I've got an invitation to the interview. HR wrote to me in Skype and we agreed on interview schedule on the convenient time for me. She was very polite.
    On arrival, I was offered some coffee and a room to wait for interviewers. There were two interviewers, they told me some information about the project and asked me if I'm interested, so we could talk further. They asked me questions on all the requirements for the vacancy. The atmosphere was nice and friendly. No pressure, no showing the supremacy, interviewers kindly gave me some hints on some questions. After one and a half hour we ended the interview. They told me that the decision would be in two days (I'm not the only one pretending for this vacancy, it seems that we were 3 candidates). I've got a very good impression about this company and its buisness culture.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or "dumb" or "google questions". Every question had a logical well-definned answer. All questions were relevant to vacancy and successfull further job. It just seems that I'm not skilled enough yet for that position.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EPAM (Zürich (Switzerland)).

    Interview

    I was pinged on LinkedIn and then I had a phone interview.
    Next step was to have a Technical interview, however they decided that based on my CV / Profile I wasn't a right fit.
    This is the worst "interview" experience so far.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EPAM in September 2014.

    Interview

    I am a senior developer. I was contacted through linked in by an epam hr. She had some general discussion on technology as in what technologies i know and work on. Whether i know scala etc, and what are the challenging tasks and assignments i have done in my past career. She also discusses about the recruitment process, that i will have 2 rounds of interview, one with the technical staff, and the other with recruitment manager.
    The technical interview by some senior guy in epam consists of some basic java concepts such as SOLID, encapsulation, polymorphism etc. The interview as on skype, and the interviewer was more focussed on coding, he asked me to write code that he was monitoring online.
    Some code on polymorphism, sorting, prime number.
    The second round was more process oriented with few technical questions on architecture like what is the possible architecture of skype. He was more focussed on agile. I was also given a exercise after the interview, where i was asked to write a junit test suite demonstrating Test Driven Development. The program logic was pretty complex. I did it and submitted to epam.
    Now i am waiting for the interview plus exercise feedback.
    Next i need to prepare myself for salary negotiation.

    Finger crossed.

Focused on TDD, BDD, ATDD (!), Agile approach concepts, some MSSQL checks. Interview took ~1 hour.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at EPAM (Gdańsk (Poland)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I attended an interview at EPAM just before opening their new office in Gdańsk. It was a rather friendly atmosphere, I was asked about my previous jobs: duties an experience, projects I participated in etc. Then there were some Software Engineer questions, mostly basics like inheritance, polymorphism and a small test - written on a piece of paper. This test included standard C# inheritance classes definitions (abstract, interface, etc.).

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was solving the test which was handwritten. Adding a little stress and I couldn't read/concentrate on what was written - it was really unreadable.   Answer Question
