    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Highlands Ranch, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at 5280 Solutions in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Be ready to be interviewed by a panel who may be uncertain of which position you'll actually be filling. The interview process here is semi formalized like most of what we do. AD HOC. If you're lucky enough to get interviewed by someone competent please understand that you most likely won't be working with them but with the underlings.

    Interview Questions
    • Depends on your position but be ready for technical and problem solving questions.   Answer Question

    The more I talked to employees and former employees the more I relized that my skills would stagnate here and that the company dind't not have a promising long term outlook.
