SAP Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at EPAM.
Interview Details – Interview by few people at the same time, managers, specialists and HR. It went very well generally, they pretty much honestly explained about work scope, possible overtimes and travel. I've been asked several technical questions as well.
However, salary negotiation didn't go well and left an impression that company bargain for peanuts.
Interview Question – none as such, though be ready for technical questions. Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at EPAM.
Interview Details – 1) Quick interview with recruiter by Skype - some really basic and general things discussed, initial information about the position and who am I, what I've done in the past and what I expect to do on this position
2) Relatively easy technical interview about theoretical programming basics like OOP, design patterns, my primary technology stack and something about previous project I've done.
3) Practical tech interview: 3 tasks - implement "disposable object" pattern, implement thread-safe singleton pattern and one more or less "real task" - you have some input collection of strings and need to apply some logic to produce output collection of integers :)
Interview Question – Well, the last tech task was mostly the only thing to think about. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The salary you will be discussing is GROSS, so make sure you have included tax in it.
