Certified Programmer I Interview

Certified Programmer I

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Argo Data.

Interview Details – They used a behavioral interview process, so the questions were more about situations that show your problem solving/teamwork/leadership skills than programming knowledge. They have a proprietary programming language so they can't really get into too much detail with the code. Be ready to tell them about a time when......

Negotiation Details – They were not willing to negotiate with me.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Argo Data.

Interview Details – Had a friend on the inside. He forwarded my resume to HR and I got a call a few weeks later. HR person asked about my resume--standard stuff. Then he asked if I would need a visa sponsorship in the future. I said yes. A couple of days later, I got a call back from the HR person telling me that they don't sponsor working visas. Should've told them I don't need one yet.

Interview Details – Panel interview, 2 on 1 with some more senior developers. Write down a few simple code blocks in whatever language you know to solve a basic problem.
