Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at AT&T in June 2011.

Interview Details

First HR called and spoke about my background. Then the team lead called a week later and had a 1 hour interview in which he asked several questions some of which I could not answer. He was impolite in general and never heard back from them again. Was a waste of time.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at AT&T in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with HR rep first. Then spoke with hiring manager. Set up team interview where I met with hiring manager and 4 team members.

    They proceeded to ask me the standard software engineer interview questions. Asked me to white board a few basic algorithms. One guy brought his laptop into the interview and never took his eyes off of it, very unprofessional.

    They will hire you if you remember how to do sort and partition algorithms that you wouldn't have done since college. They do not like to speak about your current work or projects. They also ask questions that will tell them how your family life is. For example: "Tell me about how or if you are involved in your community", or "Tell me about a time outside of work, where you took a risk." All of those questions were to get me to tell them if I have a family or not.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at AT&T in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview started from HR, the reception area is crowded, the room where interview performed is hot. The interviewers came in one by one, total 5, each took around 40 minutes. Some of them hadn't seen my resume, and let me think they were so busy. The answers to the questions are not about yes or no, it is about good, better or best. The questions were all algorithm-related, not easy to me.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at AT&T in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview involved questions on what I was working on. It was more of a technical interview and had questions on my willingness to work on new technologies. There was an initial phone interview followed by an on-site interview. The background verification took a month but otherwise the process was very smooth.
