Getting an Interview
Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Additech in April 2013.
Interview Details – They called me thru hiring company. I gave all the details of my current work and skill on phone then they called me for interview. Interview question was pretty simple and generic one.They also showed me their lab and different type of machine on which embedded system coding was done.They asked me if I have any question . After one week they called me for second interview. In second interview I met with HR and Head ,It was very formal meeting.They gave me offer letter after one week.
Negotiation Details – Not negotiated
Very Easy Interview
Linux Systems Administrator Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Additech in January 2013.
Interview Details – Recruited by a recruiting firm for contract to hire position. Interview process with the actual client was mostly informal; I was able to bring my kids due to them needing me to come in on short notice, and the interview mostly consisted of showing me the lab, and them just asking about my background. They were pretty generic about the roles and responsibilities, which was a big snag and almost caused me to turn down the subsequent offer. I was able to find out from the recruiter that because this is a new position, they don't really have a clear list of responsibilities and that they ideally want someone that can kind of create the duties list for themself.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question was if I was sure that the position as they described it was something I wanted to do. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I had received another offer elsewhere and accepted it, but the recruiter was insistent on finding out what it would take for them to get me in the door rather than going with my other offer. I was able to negotiate just about everything I needed with the recruiting agency, and when I am offered the full time position, I will be able to negotiate most everything with the company.
