    Interview

    Easy to moderate interview questions on EPAM side, like basic coding questions, English level and basic theory about testing. Customers interview difficulty varies. For customer like Google it usually involves typical googly interview, with moderate to difficult coding and/or algorithms questions, but difficulty and expectations are significantly scaled down for contractors. Plus there's only one 1-hour customer interview for contractors, not 4 or 5 like for googlers.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at EPAM (Kraków (Poland)).

    Interview

    It was a quick phone screening, and an one hour on-site technical interview. Interviewer was just one of engineers on the same position that I applied. I was like a very good talk, but of course he was asking me questions, and I was answering.

    I had to use a blackboard/whiteboard for some answers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EPAM (Budapest (Hungary)).

    Interview

    I applied for the Academy program, where software engineers from other fields (like C++) are reeducated to Java (J2EE).
    The hiring process consists of three levels. The first one is an HR interview, where I could introduced myself. We were talking about my experiences, expectations and the details of the training.
    In the next session I had to solve programming tasks in front of a computer. Everything was in Java, but you only need general programming and algorithmic skills to pass the test. I've been told they measure our analytical skills and the ability of working with code written by somebody else.
    The third round was a face-to-face talking with a senior, who told me more details about the jobs at EPAM and also asked some technical questions related to software development (like SOLID principles, OOP, etc). At the end I was asked some personal questions to be seen if I'm suitable for the job and also we agreed in my compensation.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no specific question. I had to solve programming tasks. In an internally developed web application I got short tasks (like sort an array) with a certain amount of time to solve it. The application also gave the solution as unordered source code lines (in Java) that I had to put in the correct order.

      It is kinda strange, although I can see the point of it. The most negative experience is that there was no feedback whether my solution was good (only at the very end) and I could not swap between the tasks.
