    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Clearwire (San Antonio, TX) in February 2010.

    Interview

    There was a phone screen, pretty typical, including a manager and a resident specialist. During this part of the interview the specialist took the opportunity to show off his skills. I kept up fine. The onsite interview was really non-technical and VERY poorly planned. The manager in charge of hiring was in a poor mood because of scheduling conflicts and took it out by insulting me and my skill set.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at Clearwire (Seattle, WA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I had one interview over the phone, and it took a little over an hour. Basic Java questions (algorithms, data structures, inheritance, polymorphism, keywords, data types), as well as some questions about web services, ORM, dependency injection, Linux, and SQL. I was honest about my experience and knowledge, and my interviewer kept his questions in-line with my knowledge boundaries.

    The interview was going well, so he told me about the technology stack and goal of the project (what to expect - both good and bad).

    Negotiation

    I didn't need to negotiate. The offer was at the upper end of the range I provided.

    For those considering an offer: During and after my tenure there, I witnessed folks who had accepted offers only to discover their contract had been terminated the morning they showed up for work. Some of the salaries were very high. My point: Aim high, but don't commit fully until several butt-in-seat days have passed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Clearwire (Irvine, CA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    I had to go through two interviews; phone and panel. The phone interview was done by a recruiter just to see if it was worthwhile for the actual hiring manager to interview me. After I passed the phone interview I was interviewed by three people. Consisted of general questions such as "Tell us about yourself", "What do you currently do", "Do yo have any experience in this field", etc. The process wasa little disjointed since they seemed extremely busy and distracted. The hiring manager was actually eating lunch during the interview process. I didn't have all the requirements they were looking for. It was nice in the fact I got a call from them the next day indicating I wasn't a good fit.
