Manager, Software Interview

Application Details

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Vistaprint in April 2012.

Interview Details

For a software manager position, one can expect to be interviewed by an experienced or senior interviewer and to be asked questions related to management styles, leadership skills, overall technical understanding, problem solving skills, etc...
However, the interview is performed first by some junior programmer who asked me to do a coding exercise on a piece of paper. Second interviewer is another junior person who asked for an hypothetical OO design on a white board. Then another person (who seemed the most experienced) who asked some good SQL questions.
The whole interview felt as it was for a programming position and not for someone who has the necessary skills to manage, lead and motivate a team.

Further more, I later found the exact same questions that I was asked published by previous VistaPrint candidates on many web sites. This simply means that many of the people who passed their awkward tests simply read them online beforehand, which says a lot about the quality of the people working there.
