Very Easy Interview
SE Interview Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at BlueWave Computing.
Interview Details – I got the impression the 2 people that interviewed me had not seen my resume before I met them for the interview. This was undoubtedly the fault of the recruiter. The interview was typical, nothing out of the ordinary. They asked about my work experience, explained about the job and responsibilities, etc.
Interview Question – The technical pre-interview questions were easy. There were no surprises. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – As the other candidate has stated, offered salary was extremely low. Even after negotiations, their second offer was unacceptable. It was definitely their loss as it otherwise seemed like it would be a great place to work.
Systems Engineer III Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at BlueWave Computing in May 2012.
Interview Details – The work culture seems great, and the office itself is nice. All the people seemed friendly, and the company is mostly of younger people which I prefer. It had a hip type feeling. The interview was easy, but designed to weed out people who don't really know their stuff.
Interview Question – Mostly technical questions Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I declined because the salaries are embarrassingly low compared to the market. They know they are too, and don't care. That says all I need to know about the company. If you are an entry level guy this is probably a good place. Senior levels guys will make a ton more money elsewhere.
Sales Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at BlueWave Computing in January 2012.
Interview Details – Fairly decent and straight forward interview. The company is expanding at an alarming rate, especially during a stagnant economy. The interview consisted of basic questions - what are you best qualities, why do you want this position, what can you bring, etc. Additionally, there were some hidden personality questions thrown into the mix.
Interview Question – How do you say your name? Answer Question
