Software Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Billerica, MA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Cabot in September 2012.

Interview Details – Intervire process had 3 steps:

1) Phone screening - very basic to make sure I have the required tech skills.
2) F2F interview at the site in Billerica I interviewed with the hiring manager and 2 other people in the team. Each of them asked me questions in different areas:
- top level software design
- programming and technical skills
- relational database design
3) I was selected for a final interview with the director of IT. No technical questions. Just going over my backgroud experience and ensure I was a good personality match.

The interview process took forever. I didn't think I would get the job, but after about 2 weeks after I interviewed with the IT director they called me to make me an offer.

Senior Product Line Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Haverhill, MA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Cabot in February 2010.

Interview Details – Seven different people over 6 1/2 hours never received a response. Passed a telephone screen that lasted 45 minutes. Wrote follow-up emails to every person that I spoke with and never got any response at all !! How rude?? Culture seemed excessively anal - 6Sigma, Lean are excellent tools - they went way overboard - saplers and printers were 5s'ed on manager's desks with outline drawn on desk for stapler, printer, etc...locations.
