I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bluewolf in December 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied through my campus career office and had a one on one interview scheduled with a recruiter. It was extremely informal, to the point where our conversation was not productive or related to my skills or the company at all. She scoffed at some of my job experiences and did not make any effort to understand the position, which was obviously off putting. Conversation did not feel genuine and I left being a little confused.
Received an e-mail on a Sunday afternoon asking if I could schedule a phone interview for the next day, which I did. They did not provide any information as to what I should prepare or think about. The conversation was cordial, more formal, and essentially behavioral questions about why I chose my school, basic work experience, any questions I had for them, etc.
Received a call a week later requesting to set up a final interview which is a presentation on your 5 year plan. I lost interest in the company and declined.
Recruiting process was very hot and cold, seemed somewhat unorganized.

Interview Details – Two rounds of phone interviews: first round with recruiter, and second round with recent graduate of the ABE program (a new business analyst at Bluewolf). Great experience with the recruiter, but very poor conversation at the second round with the business analyst.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bluewolf in November 2013.
Interview Details – Met recruiter at job fair. Initial interview was over the phone, standard questions about my background, information about their company. Was given coding challenge, first one was easy (couple basic problems) second was more challenging but creative and fun. In person interview shortly thereafter, went very well, met with 3 individuals, but unfortunately even though the interview was a positive one, they found someone with more credentials than I. All in all very good experience, will maybe try again in the future!
Interview Question – My design patterns were a bit rusty. Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bluewolf.
Interview Details –
I applied through their website then got a call from one of their HR people a couple of weeks later. It was a pleasant phone call and afterwards I was asked to complete a programming assignment. It was very easy so I completed it in 15 minutes. A few days later, I got an invite to visit their office. I had a great time — everyone was really cool but it seemed just a meet-and-greet rather than an on-site technical interview. A few days later, I got another email and was asked to complete another programming assignment. I was rather annoyed (since they had the opportunity to gauge my coding skills during the on-site but they didn't) but I didn't say anything since it was pretty easy. I turned it in quickly and then later on was invited to another visit to their office. At this point, I am pretty annoyed since this is a sign of inefficiency in their recruiting process but I went anyway because I enjoyed my last visit. It went well again and was a really easy interview (surprisingly no algorithm/mathematical challenges at all). They just asked some general questions about my programming background experience and a couple of questions about my solutions to their programming assignments. There were some behavioral/cultural questions as well.
I got an offer a week or so later and was VERY DISAPPOINTED at the compensation package. I couldn't believe how low the offer was! They tried to talk up the company's bonus structure and point out that I'm just a new-grad but I just sadly shook my head and declined. I didn't even try to negotiate since I already got another offer that was almost 50% more than what they are offering. It seems that Bluewolf, as a company, only sees software developers as interchangeable grunts a.k.a "code-monkeys".
Interview Question – Nothing difficult at all and the only unexpected thing was the lack of multi-round, algorithm challenges that needed to be solved on the spot. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Salary was laughably low for a software developer.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bluewolf in October 2013.
Interview Details – I found the interview process to be clear, fluid, and complete. I was asked about my professional background and interviewed specifically about my skills. Additionally, throughout the process I was also asked about me as a person, my interests, my goals, and drives. The discussions were comfortable and not stuffy in any way.
Interview Question – A technical question I cannot divulge. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Bluewolf in October 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process was straight forward. Preliminary phone interview, algorithm based coding assignment and then a more practically coding assignment. If all goes well this leads to a in person interview. Amazing office, great workstations and they provide dual monitors. First impression of office culture is amazing, simply seemed fun. The people i met with were really cool and were a big factor in my decision!

Interview Details –
I applied online, Then the HR person got in contact with me. After reading a lot of reviews on glassdoor, I was expecting from the interview. She called me, and it seemed she was really bored. one word replies to every detailed answer I gave,
Pretty standard questions, definitely not interested in my answers. the interview was over in 10 -15 mins flat. After a week i put a followup and she said she moved ahead with other candidates.
Interview Question – pretty simple resume screening. Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Bluewolf in June 2013.
Interview Details –
Several Interviews - 6-10. Most done over the phone, two in person. First few were done with Internal Recruiting staff. Everyone I spoke with was just so darn friendly. They all seemed so passionate about their own jobs. Anyone who speaks so highly of their own employer with ZERO hesitation is telling the truth and has a genuine love and passion for their employer. This was an extremely attractive aspect, as some places everyone sounds like zombies, overworked, bored and just punching them cards until retirement.
For this role, Sr Consultants and Tech Architects, there are some more in-depth sessions regard Systems/App knowledge. Additional calls were held to go over a Fictitious Company, use cases and functional requirements. Some curveballs in here, but they are wanting to gauge your problem-solving thought processes and are looking to see the order in which you rule things out... Keep the solutions as simple as possible (in general; both in real world perspective and this interview)
I got a little antsy towards the end, because I was wanting to know what their interest level and if an offer would be extended, but they still had more interviews and research to conduct.
Interview Question – Fictitious company had a requirement to display only open opportunities on the Account page, and did not just want the related list to be sorted. View Answer
