    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at EPAM in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at EPAM.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Budapest (Hungary)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Budapest (Hungary)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at EPAM in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I've been contacted by a recruiter at EPAM and was invited to talk about a senior C++ position, but we did not get really far. The first interview was with the recruiter herself, and did not last longer than ca. 30 min, as we went through the basic introductory questions. Also, she was very pleased that i had some Java experience as well, because that was also needed for the position - so i was also pleased that she was pleased, pointing out that i have no experience in j2ee though, which she said was fine. I doubt if she knew what i was talking about, because a few days later i was called in to a second round, where a rude bald guy, said to be the Java expert, appeared and kept asking - guess what - j2ee questions in a very despising manner. It was one of the most embarrassing experiences in my life. For obvious reason the interview ended fairly soon and never got an offer.

    Later that year, surprisingly, the same HR assistant from EPAM contacted me a few more times and asked if i was available a C++ position... my answers were pretty short each time.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Gdańsk (Poland)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Gdańsk (Poland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at EPAM in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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
