Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Worcester, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Amadeus IT Group in March 2012.

Interview Details – The interview consisted 1:1 with 5 Team Lead Engineers and Director of Engineering. The Director of Engineering is very friendly and smart. The 1:1 was entirely filled with technical questions on Java, C++ and SQL.

The office is small and has a mundane atmosphere. This is an R&D branch and therefore they are busy with product development. Hiring decisions are extremely slow. Overall, the interview was nice but administration could have been better.

Interview Question – Questions on Java and C++ basically.   Answer Question

Chicago, IL

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Amadeus IT Group in June 2010.

Interview Details – Everyone that I encountered during the interview process was very professional. The HR team based out of Miami was nice, but seemed to be a step behind on everything (maybe not their fault). The interviews were pretty standard fare, but challenging due to some of the accents that were encountered.

Interview Question – What negative impressions do you have of Amadeus based on what you have seen of heard of the company prior to talking to us directly?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Better opportunity came along.

Product Development Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Amadeus IT Group.

Interview Details – Very long and not sure it is very well evaluated. Having the right contacts in the company could be more helpful than contacting the HR department. However you still have to gear up yourself and performance well during exam and interviews to present your personal value in order to be hired.

Interview Question – None.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Around four months.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Amadeus IT Group.

Interview Details – First, a standard telephone interview about some basic programming questions. The only one that threw me was, 'tell me about the most complicated thing you had to program?'. Next is a short set of programming questions, quite easy. Then there is an in house interview with HR and a manager, which lasts about an hour. There is no problem solving or anything like that, but you need to be explain to explain what you have done so they can see if it will be useful. Finally there is another interview with a Director which you have to wait in a room for about an hour and then be interviewed for about 10 minutes. Quite easy and people are very nice, the interviews are not really anything to be worried about, they just want to know what you have done in the past. Note that this is for permanent staff, for contractors there is sometimes no interview at all and if there is one it is usually a short phone call.

Interview Question – What is the most complicated thing you have had to program?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Easy to negotiate, and I got what I wanted. Oddly enough, they sent me a spreadsheet with details of what their range was after I accepted and it turns out they were prepared to pay even more than I had negotiated, so i suggest you go high.
