    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CA Technologies.

    Interview

    I started off as an intern, so my interview process was more an internal discussion with my manager to determine whether I was interested. During the internship interview, I was asked the standard stuff about why I would want to work for CA, what I could bring to the table, and given a basic programming test to ensure that I could code Java.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CA Technologies.

    Interview

    Applied for a position as a college graduate. The first day there were four engineers who interviewed me. All behavioral questions and focused on trying to sell the company and working on mainframes. They even brought in someone undergoing training to describe what it was like. The interviewers were very friendly. The second day was another interview with management and either was very unprofessional or an interview style I've never heard of before. After a couple of minutes of looking at my resume and before even saying anything, he commented at how I was probably "king of the idiots" based on my high GPA. Asked questions around design patterns, concurrency, etc in a condescending manner. I feel like I answered them correctly as I later got offers at top tech companies with similar answers, but definitely didn't give them confidently as I was being put in a stressful situation.

    Interview

    I applied online and got email for first video interview on montage. First video interview was simple and basic information type. Nothing serious that can be used to judge people. You basically record video based on question asked and summit it online. You can resubmit some question before summiting but some are just one time summation.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CA Technologies.

    Interview

    Brief phone screen interview followed by 3 onsite interviews. The phone-screen interview is mainly to ensure you are not wasting their time; we used an online collaboration app to share code interactively. The on-site interview is more in depth and average difficulty. The questions ranged from simple query/java questions to problem solving techniques for real issues (mostly scale related).

    Interview

    I discovered the Marketing Rotational Program (MRP) at a career fair on my college campus. After submitting my resume to the recruiter, I received an email invitation to complete a video montage interview. This consisted of several short answer prompts that asked behavioral and situation-based questions, as well as my opinion on trends in the technology industry. A month later, I went into one of the office locations for in-person (1-on-1) interviews with 4 various people in the marketing organization. A few weeks after that, I received a phone call from the recruiter offering me the position.
