    Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Waltham, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Waltham, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Siemens PLM Software in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via email to set up a phone interview within 24 hour of applying. The phone interview was a quick personal discussion of my University education and the projects that I had mentioned on my resume, he asked about how long the code was trying to get a handle on if I had worked with large code bases. Then the interviewer began asking C++ questions, const keyword in a function, what is a pure virtual function, what is the difference between a balanced tree and a binary tree, what is the advantage of the balanced tree over the binary tree? There were a couple other questions I cannot remember. He was very nice and when I was struggling to come up with the exact keyword he would often give hints.

    I then went in for an in person interview and met with the whole Fibersim team and they each asked different questions, mostly about C++, but there were a few questions about SQL and XML. The team was very friendly and there was even a whovian with a sonic screwdriver pen. The interview lasted 3.5 hours but felt like a lot less since it was only 30 min with each team member. The interview was a great experience and I quite enjoyed my time there.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to find errors in a short two page code with derived classes and base classes by one of the team members, although he stated before he gave it to me that he had purposefully made the errors very hard to find and the test was more to observe methodology and comprehension.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Siemens PLM Software in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Reached out to the recruiter about the role.
    Recruiter replied back seeking my clarification viz. experience on couple of domain items.

    Next was a phone screen with Hiring Manager (Director of the division I was applying for) - very cordial interview. The Hiring Manager first gave me an opportunity to discuss my background, past work experience and level of interest in the job. Then the Hiring Manager provided me overview of the role, responsibilities, expectations and timelines.

    Then I was invited to an onsite group interview with a 5 member Panel comprising Biz. Dev, Engineering, Release Management and QA teams:
    The Group Interview was cordial - provided me opportunity to explain how could contribute to Product success in marketplace.

    At the end of the interview I was hopeful about getting an offer. But I did NOT hear back from the recruiter for couple of weeks. When contacted, the recruiter informed me that Hiring Manager is interviewing other candidates and there was good chance that job would be moved to their Texas offices.

    After another couple of weeks, I got a note from recruiter informing that the role was moved to Texas from So. California.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Siemens PLM Software in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from a recruiter because he had received my resume from my college advisor. From there, I did a conference call with 2 people going into more detail of the job and my resume. That took about 30 minutes to complete. Then I am called back for a face to face interview at their offices. Very clean and neat work environment. The interview had two people and asked me more about my skills, which they even said, they wanted someone with multiple skills.
