Software Developer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
Interviewed at Applied Systems
Interview Details – I met them at a career fair and I contacted them through email. After a short while from hearing back from them we scheduled a phone interview. After that they went through there process and I was on of the interns they hired. They did a great job with keeping in contact with me and letting me know what was going on.
Interview Question – The questions were pretty straight forward. It was mostly about my experience and what I kind of projects I have completed. A list of projects I completed would have been helpful to have since I was trying to remember from the top of my head what I have done. Over all it was a fairly laid back interview process. I never had to go in for a in person interview. However, I would imagine it is somewhat more rigorous for full time employment. Answer Question

Client Partner Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Applied Systems in May 2012.
Interview Details – The VP is very inexperienced as a VP and lacks confidence in herself. During the interview she directly stated to me that she did not want to discuss any of the products and services of the company. Additionally, she also told me on the very front in of my interview that it was Friday and she liked to leave early. I was rather shocked that she said all that she did to a potential candidate. I knew immediately that the interview was over. Especially after anything that I know and she did not know she was like "oh yea I knew that." Upon my leaving the facility she speed away and pretended like she did not even see me walking out of the building.Its rather unfortunate, I think its a great company with great potential but the recent new VP probably won't stay very long.

Support Technician Accounting Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Applied Systems in April 2012.
Interview Details – First, Applied Systems was at my career fair. I talked to the HR recruiter about the various positions available. I applied online and got an email a few weeks later saying that the recruiter wanted to conduct a phone interview with me. I conducted the phone interview and afterwards she told me to fill out some paperwork online. The paperwork consisted of an online application, a long-form application, a personality test, and an assessment test. I completed all those and emailed them to the recruiter the same day I had my phone interview. The recruiter called me the next day saying that the vice president of customer support wanted to conduct an on-site interview. The on-site interview was about 2 weeks later and was about a little over an hour long. It was broken up into two sessional interviews, one with the VP of customer support and the other with two supervisors. Each lasted about 30 minutes each. Had a follow up with the recruiter afterwards telling me they will let me know by tomorrow. The next day, the recruiter called me telling me I got the job.
