Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
Application Details

I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Altisource in April 2013.

Interview Details

A recruiter setup the interview. I had an initial 30 minute phone screen with an HR representative. Immediately after the phone screen I took a personality test (PI) online. That same day the recruiter contacted me to setup 1.5 hour in-person interview. This was scheduled for the following week. The first part of the in-person interview was a 12 minute 50 question Wonderlic test. After that I went to a different room and had about a one hour interview with three individuals at the same time. They only seemed to care about whether I knew the technologies they were working with. They did not care about any of my past experiences. They came across as very condescending. When I left I had made up my mind I would not want to work here regardless of any offer.

Interview Questions
  • They asked me to do a merge sort. This is really the last thing I expected for the position I was interviewing for. It took me about 15 minutes and afterwords I realized I did not handle one case (they did not point this out, I realized it after the fact). The reality is I would have done better on this question if I was a recent college grad. This is a fairly easy problem that I would easily complete with 100% correctness in a work environment in a reasonable amount of time (develop, implement and tested in under an hour). I could possibly see spending time on these types of questions in a longer interview. Or if I was interviewing for a software developer position. But in a 1 hour interview for a software architect this is what they focus on? What about focusing on architecture experience? For example, how about asking about how I solved architectural problems in any of the past systems I worked on? Or ask architecture related questions?   Answer Question

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Altisource in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial round of interview is same even for directors. A written interview with around 60 question and time given is 10/15 minutes. Once that is cleared next round will be face to face interview on technical skill. There can be more than one interview session with different panel. Once that is over you are almost there. Next salary negotiation and HR interview. For my case HR interview happened before tech interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing is difficult for the right candidate. There will questions basically on real experience and nothing tricky question which can be collected in the net freely.   Answer Question
