    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at HARMAN in February 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was professional, organized and moved along quickly. Contacted by a recruiter. Interviewed with the General Manager of that business segment. Had a followup interview with HR personnel. The interview was an open conversation/summary of my past experience then a discussion on market trends/product strategy. Overall, the process was very good.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at HARMAN.

    Interview

    3interviews seem to be typical. One is with HR, one is with the hiring manager and he usually brings in with him another manager and one is usually with members of the team you will be working with. Sometimes when they are not sure which group you will fit in then you only interview with hiring managers from different groups. The interview is usually have technical questions and half soft skills and team player type of questions.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vernon Hills, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    They sent me a test to be completed in 45 minutes.
    Then had a phone call. There were some interesting high level questions. It was only because of that call that I decided to go on site. But I was heavily disappointed.

    Onsite -
    HR - typical HR questions
    technical - very easy questions. These guys do embedded systems so they don't use stl/boost. More of low level C.

    Interview Questions

    • most "difficult" question involved implementing binary search. so you can imagine the easier ones. I did not get the offer maybe because I probably came off as arrogant or demanded a high salary but I wouldn't have accepted it anyway. Entry barrier to get in is just too low plus embedded systems is too dry for my taste.
      Been 2 months and I am still waiting for reimbursement))). So be careful with them.
