Test Automation Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Cambridge, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Akamai in January 2012.

Interview Details – The company has bunch of asinine clueless recruiters that act like they can screen talented engineers. Let me tell you the ignorant recruiters out there. Only good engineers can screen good engineers. Bean counters should stick with bean counting. The skill of quickly answering an asinine syntax question regarding an asinine programing language like C++ is not an engineering skill. This is a bean counting skill. These companies are producing massive amounts of spaghetti code until they get crushed by the sheer weight of their stupidity. I have a feeling this Titanic will get a deep gash in the near future. More than 70,000 servers deployed. Are you kidding me? Time to short this pig.
