Senior Software Developer Interview

Senior Software Developer
Cordova, TN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Brother International.

Interview Details – Originally worked and negotiated the interviews through a recruiter, then moved on to personal and on-site interviews. The offer was low at first and I rejected it. They came back higher but not by much. The interview tour was not sufficient and gives a more rosy picture than the place deserves.

Interview Question – How would you measure team performance.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I negotiated for a month, slightly higher salary, vacation not negotiable. Sign on bonus was available, and at the end they slip into the paperwork a one-year contract to keep the sign-on bonus, not having mentioned this before. I would pity the person who decides to stay the entire year to keep the small sign-on allotment.

Regional Sales Manager Interview

Regional Sales Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Brother International.

Interview Details – Contacted first after answering a blind ad 3 months later by Regional Personnel Director. Was invited to meet with her the next day for 1/2 hour basic interview. Two weeks later met with National & Western directors for company in 2 hour interview. Two weeks later invited for further interviews and testing, given an offer that I excepted even though starting wage was well below what it should have been. I felt that there was opportunity I couldn't pass up.

Interview Question – I didn't feel there was either.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Basically in this case their was none as I had been out of the industry 15 years.
