Software Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
Montreal, QC (Canada)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at CAE in April 2012.

Interview Details – I met 2 interviewers. A manager and a programmer. They asked a few traditionnal question like why CAE, etc.. Then they asked a very few and easy technical C++ questions and some about design patterns. Finally, they asked some very broad questions about airplanes. I did not study in that field but the questions were easy enough so with general knowledge you could answer them.

Interview Question – *The interviewer shows an image of a screen in the cockpit of an airplane* then asked: Why are some text overlapping in the image?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They called me a week after and offered me the position I applied for.
