Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Orem, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at AccessData in April 2010.

Interview Details – Easier to get started on an interview if you go through an current employee or through the hiring agent that they use. Usually involves a phone interview with some technical questions thrown in, then you called up for an on-site technical interview which tends to be pretty similar to the phone interview but for a longer duration, I was asked mostly about c#, sql, object oriented programming and threading

Interview Question – Was given a piece of code that uses threads with some bugs thrown in I was asked to identify and fix the potential problem in the code, it was not too bad   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – negotiation tends towards low balling you

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Lindon, UT

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at AccessData in March 2012.

Interview Details – It started with a phone interview. The Interviewer questioned me on my skill sets and had me rank myself on each of them (1-10). They asked my current position, length of that position, and current salary. There was no technical questions over the phone. After 3 days, I was contacted and asked to come in and meet with the CEO, the Team lead and 3 existing members of the team. Here I was asked technical questions regarding C# and .Net. These questions ranged from topics such as inheritance, WCF services, Generics and MSSQL. They asked me to write a method (they had large white boards on the walls) showing how I would solve the Fibonacci numbers algorithm. 4 Days later I was called in to meet with the Team Leader individually. Here I was asked about Application Design, Database Design. He was interested in how I processed things and what my methods were to solve problems. I was very impressed with everyone at this company that I met with. They all seemed very straight forward and honest with me about any questions I had about the company.

Interview Question – Solve the Fibonacci numbers in a method . Method would accept an index as a parameter and the method would return the Fibonacci number for that index.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – After receiving their offer, I went in to turn in my letter of resignation to my current employer. Upon seeing this, which was a surprise to them, they were willing to offer me large pay increase on top of the offer that AccessData offered.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AccessData in April 2009.

Interview Details – One on one interview with hiring manager. The hiring manager described the development groups and what each development group was responsible for and what their current needs were. Next the hiring manager had me meet with their resident guru for a technical interview. He gave me a sheet of paper a short C++ program and asked what the program would print. Next he had me write psuedo code for reversing a linked list. Last there was a group interview with the manager of the group and two lead developers. They asked general and specific personal and technical questions. They also asked me to write psuedo code to compute the a Fibonacci number.

Interview Question – Pseudo code reversing a linked list.   View Answer

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at AccessData.

Interview Details – Probably the most disrespectful and ignorant interview process ever. Had a phone interview with their recruiter. Made it to the next step with a phone interview with the hiring manager. Next step was an on-site interview. Meet with three people who actually perform the job function. They were okay. The hiring manager was next. He was late for our session. He wasn't dressed professionally. He didn't shave that day. Just terrible interviewer. Very dry personality. Overall I did well in my interview. Was told that I would hear something within a week. Weeks went by and nothing. Called the hiring manager for an update. He was very rude. Told me that in a very unprofessional manner that he didn't have time to talk. Not sure why he picked up and answered the phone. But he told me he would call me on Monday. The weekend went by and so did Monday and heard nothing. About a month later the recruiter called me back to see if I was still available. I told her yes. She told me the hiring process was delayed due to system updates. That's why I supposedly didn't hear back sooner. But she reassured me that all was well and they were still interested. 5 months later which includes 2 emails to her for updates, and a voicemail and no response. Very, very unprofessional. They did me a favor. I don't want to work for this type of company.
