    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Charles River Development.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter matched me with different teams. I have both java and .net background. I initially phone screen with a java team who gave me good feedback but then they were closed to picking somebody else so the recruiter set me up with another team to do another phone screen. Then I got invited to an on-site where i was there from 9:30am to 2pm. Met with 5 people and then had to do an analytical test. The people were friendly and I really had a good experience meeting them.

    The recruiter said the team lead had narrowed down 10+ candidates down to me and another candidate. She kept delaying on giving me a decision. My guess is they already gave this other guy an offer and waiting for his decision. In the meantime, i have moved on and took another job.

    Software Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Charles River Development in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial communications with the recruiter were fairly standard and led to an in-person interview a few days later. The interview format consisted of 1:1 meetings with various people on the team. Some of the meeting were more conversational and others consisted of standard interview questions (e.g., describe how you overcame a challenge). I also had to provide a writing sample and complete a logic test.

    What I did not like –

    Interview seemed somewhat disorganized and I was left unattended for long periods of time during the interview.

    The interview went from early morning to mid-afternoon and I was not offered any food (I was offered a beverage though). I’m not sure if this was some type of endurance test or just a complete oversight. Either way, it left a very sour taste in my mouth.

    One of the individuals I interviewed with was rather candid with me (which I appreciated) about the company culture, management, and long work hours.

    Conclusion –

    I think Charles River Development could be a great opportunity for the right person. I was rather excited going into the interview, but at the conclusion I knew it was not for me. There were just too many red flags and I couldn’t see having a long-term career there.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Charles River Development in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    First phone interview. Then on site. 4 interviews, 1 analytic test and 1 writing test.
    HR was efficient and friendly, the interviews were arranged in an effective and convenient form. The interviews were conducted in a casual manner, which were mixed with technical and behavioral questions. The interviewers are nice but a bit unprofessional. Just one of them remembered to bring a business card.
