    Database Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at AIR Worldwide (Boston, MA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Preliminary phone screens and conversations where great. This was followed by an assignment emailed by the company that I had to complete.
    Unfortunately, the in-person didn't go very well. Two rounds into the interview, it was evident that some of the interviewers weren't prepared. A few of them didn't know what roll I would fit in. And some of the questions that the interviewers were hovering on were college-grad level SQL syntax.

    No serious project issues were discussed. If they were, it was unclear.

    By the third round, it was clear that I was being measured up for aN Application support engineer and that is to address lot of locking and query tuning issues on the fly.

    I decided not to pursue this position.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at AIR Worldwide.

    Interview

    They were looking for more industry experience and development skills. Thought I had done a good job with my resume and the phone screening to clearly articulate my skill set, but this interview turned out to be a waste of time. They are using internet explorer, which would have been an absolute nightmare.

    Data Mining Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    First it went normal. After submitting my resume and bugging the HR, I was asked for a phone screen and then a phone interview. The phone interview was conducted by this very rude lady. She did NOT have any basic courtsey. Together with her was the supervisor. He was just as rude and snobby. To kick off, they asked me with this really accusing voice: "Do you have any idea what this position is doing?" I repeated what the job description said, which was nothing like what they told me.

    The most uncivil thing is that they NEVER get back to me of what's happening a month and 2 weeks after! Oh well, I am too busy to wait for your empty promise....

    Interview Questions

    • Yeah, a great question before they even could pronounce my name right: "Do you have any idea what this job is about?" Well, I instantly feel sorry for applying that crappy position.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied online, first had a half hour phone interview followed by an invite for a full interview. Full interview consisted of one-on-one interviews with three or four different members of the team, including the hiring manager and the person who previously held the position, as well as a programming test and personal project presentation. Company location and culture both seemed awesome, and I enjoyed the entire experience immensely despite ultimately not landing the position.

    Interview Questions

    • A technical question about how to engage with arrays in certain programming languages. My programming experience at the time was fairly minimal and I did not know how to answer.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at AIR Worldwide.

    Interview

    The process was straightforward and easy to manage. It was several years ago and since the process has changed, likely for the better. Started with a phone screening with the HR contact followed by a phone screening by the hiring manager. After 1-2 weeks, agreed to come on site for an in person interview. Heard back within 1 week and was offered the position.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview that was largely behavioral, and a few days later got a call from an interview at the office. The interview consisted of a total of 7 people, largely covering all groups/departments within the Consulting and Business Development organization. After the interviews, I was required to provide qualitative responses to certain questions to demonstrate interest and understanding of the business/company.

    Interview Questions

    • Most interviewers focused on the behavioral aspect and wanted to do a deep-dive on my resume and past work experience. Hardest questions was give an example where you disagreed with a superior/manager/colleague and how did you handle it.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much scope to negotiate, not that I know. If offer seems fair and competitive then take it.
