I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at CA Technologies (Dallas, TX) in September 2014.
Interview was with hiring manger was only 30 minutes. Then had interview with another manager. Then was asked to come to career fair to meet 1:1. Everything went smooth took about 2 to 3 weeks and I was hired before graduating from school. I was told I could work and learn things but nothing came to fruition. Basically I was lied to and then moved over to a different team.

I applied online – interviewed at CA Technologies.
The interview scheduling process seemed very disorganized. I had less than 24 hours notice for my interview, and the people organizing the interview did not seem to be very prepared for my visit. Once I got to the interview however, the interview went very smoothly.
The interview started with an overview of the company, the benefits of working for CA, and a walk through of what I could expect from the position. My interviewer (now manager) had obviously studied my resume, and asked questions that seemed unrelated to my qualifications for the job. At the end of the interview, he mentioned that he cared much more for my personality than my technical training - this position was meant to provide all of the training that I would need. Thus the interview was largely meant to probe my personality and ability to mesh with the team.
- The most unexpected question that I got was why I had participated in various community service activities. Since this was a technical interview, I was expecting more technical than personality based questions. 1 Answer
There was some room to negotiate, and if you ask for the higher end of the salary range (and are qualified to be asking for it) they will place you at the higher end of the range.

Applied online got a call from a recruiter a few months later, we went over my resume and they invited me on campus to interview. Onsite I was interviewed by 6 different people, I'm not sure if that is what was typical because the email to schedule the interview said there was only going to be three interviewers.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at CA Technologies (Framingham Center, MA).
15 minute phone screen with no technical questions followed by a 30 minute more technical phone interview. After passing the first two rounds I got an on-site interview that lasted about 4 hours. I met 6 people in a 4 hour span. Most of the interviewers asked pretty straight forward questions but one interviewer grilled me with close to 50 questions in 45 minutes. I received around 35 Java questions and answered about 30 of them correctly but I could be wrong.
- Lots of specific Java questions and lots of multi-threading questions. Answer Question
