    Software Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, MA
    Anonymous Employee 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.
