Senior Software Engineer Interview
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 7+ weeks – interviewed at AOL.
Initial HR phone screening. - Simple technical questions. Second face to face Interview on site. With 3 rounds. First with the team in which project was suppose to be. With few technical questions but basics. Then with Project manager with some question on interest and normal talk. Third with HR head with most of the HR behavioral questions. took 1 week to say yes or no. After we both agreed took 1 week to finalized the salary. Then started the worst nightmare. After finalizing everything and giving verbal confirmation of every thing they ask for 1 week to issue offer letter. That offer letter never come. The worst part is HR was keep on hiding the real thing behind and keep me hanging for 1 month in wait. On top of that HR was aware the problem that there is a budget issue with the position and keep on giving me wrong information that there is no budget issue and just asked for few more days. At the end they said we have budget cut we can't offer and worst part is HR never told me that directly. I only come to know from staffing company in-between. Very Very unprofessional behavior and played with other carriers.

Was with a third party as I'm there a long time and my first 6 months was as a contractor. Things have changed significantly since I started here. Interview process is much more detailed now and is OTT IMO.

An open job interview is an interview for employment where companies accept job applications during a ranges of times when all applicants who are interested in applying can attend. The company conducts on-the-spot interviews rather than scheduling individual interview appointments with candidates. If the company advertises open interviews, this will be the first step in the interview process.

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at AOL in May 2010.
Interview with hiring manager on the phone went well. I was called onsite and interviewed with 5 members of their team. The team members were very friendly and open to talking about their projects and my role. The interview was very technical as expected. They had a written test that was administered early on prior to the interview. A large part of the hiring process is based on the test I think. I thought the interview went well and was told that they would be going ahead with an offer. But, I was later told that the CTO vetoed the offer, which was a bummer because I liked the team and thought my skills lined up well to fit in. Oh well...moving on.
