Later they ask me to write a program on there board(There was a white board bhind me where i was sitting). They asked me to sort array items and print smallest and biggest item. They asked my past experience and discussed more about my projects. They asked more questions on OOPS concepts ,polymorphism, encapsulation, etc. In the end they said that they are looking for some more experienced developer. They wanted some one who is very strong with Springs framework...

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Compuware (Detroit, MI) in December 2011.

    Interview

    One HR round on Phone. Very easy and it was piece of cake. One technical round on telephone. Technical round was easy too. Basic questions, Resume based, and they were trying to check whatever we show on resume we know. Managers generally look for passionate candidates and can do approach under touch conditions. I was not really well prepared but managed to answer about 70% of questions correctly. Salary depends much on technical round of interview, years of experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Tip: Just concentrate on basics and you should know your resume thoroughly.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No. I asked for too much and end up with out negotiating as this was the only offer I got that time.

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Compuware (Detroit, MI) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I had been consulting as a project manager on a contract basis, and was asked to contribute to a RFQ response, to which I was asked to include myself. When we won the competitive bid, I was asked to interview for the position I had helped to develop in our proposal. My competency set and work ethic and personal workstyle were pretty well iknown at that point. A couple of meetings withe Regional Director and Program Director provided some background on the position, which is a hybrid of several skills sets with an emphasis on retail automotive consulting. Very professional, very pleasant process, with a lot of emphasis on culture and commitment to client service.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Guardian - APM Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Compuware (Detroit, MI) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Interview in 2011, consisted of 9 interviews before offers were made. - 3 phone call interviews - 6 in person interviews (During all day trip to HQ) - 1 presentation (15 minutes) about Compuware Gomez software (During all day trip to HQ) The in person interviews consisted mostly of logic puzzles, or repeating questions that had been previously asked. The presentation was the hardest, because you were required to "sell" and explain software that you had no knowledge of or documentation. I had a poor time understanding what the software did from reading the website alone, and thus did poor on the presentation. After the presentation, there were 25 remaining candidates, 5 to be chosen. The whole process took at least 2 months. I've never prepared and worked so hard just for an interview process. It was pretty heartbreaking to go so far and not get an offer. It was a good learning experience, but just know what you are getting yourself into. If you can come out alive, the rewards will set you up good for life. Presentation tips: Make a slide, covering each software under the Gomez package. Practice presenting in front of real people Make sure not to talk like a robot
