Software Engineer IV Interview

Software Engineer IV
Las Vegas, NV

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at International Game Technology in February 2013.

Interview Details – Worked with a recruiter who got me a phone interview with one manager for a position I wasn't really interested in but that one recommended me to another who had a position more suitable for my skill set. The questions asked by the first manager were mostly technical. The second manager I spoke to on the phone asked mostly personality questions. This was followed by an in person technical interview with a group of 3 employees, followed by a face to face with the manager. Each session lasted around an hour.

Interview Question – How would you troubleshoot an out of memory error? How would you prevent it from occurring again? How would you recommend monitoring the system to ensure minimal downtime should it happen again?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a salary 10% higher than their initial offer. I declined their first two offers on the basis of being too low.

Executive Assistant Interview

Executive Assistant
Reno, NV

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at International Game Technology.

Interview Details – Overall very smooth. HR is very effective there and follows up with your questions. You have to go through a screening online and then "IF" your resume is forwarded to the Manager (recruiting makes that decision) they schedule the appointments. I am not aware of a confirmation if you are not selected for the position.

Interview Question – What are your flaws? Really?? How are you supposed to answer that?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation what so ever. Take it or leave it.

Reno, NV

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at International Game Technology in March 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a staffing company which was very professional in their approach which actually got me interested in applying at IGT. A technical phone interview was then scheduled within a couple of weeks with the pertaining project manager and technical architect. I was asked questions only about core java, but the questions were apt for evaluate the clarity of fundamental concepts. Interview lasted for half an hour. I was called the next day to schedule a F2F interview which was a nice experience. I was interviewed by a panel of 3. Although the questions were not that easy I was impressed with the tech architect who was very knowledgeable and articulate.

Interview Question – All questions were from core java and were expected.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not need to negotiate as I was offered a compensation package completely based upon industry standard and position offered and not on my previous compensation package.
