    Application Details

Questions are not complicated at all and interview process is mainly to gauge what kind of person is applying. No experience is necessary and all that is required is a good "can-do" attitude.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Discount Tire Company.

Techs have an above average turn around.

    There wasn't any. If you work hard and do what your told, you can become quickly a favorite among the management and then ask for raises as you feel you deserve them.

    Senior Java Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Scottsdale, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Discount Tire Company in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview Content :Very Good.
    Interview Process : I did not like it. Very unusual to me.
    1.First Round - Rapid fire questions 40-50 Java/JEE
    2. Second Round : A.) Coding exercise. TDD based. B.) Behavioral - More than 10 people.
    Why I did not like it:
    Coding exercise : You are coding on a projector with a wireless keyboard and a mouse. there is a lag some times. There are 4 people in the room talking to each other - very annoying. They will be watching and talking some thing irrelevant. I couldn't concentrate. I'm not used to this kind of interview.I felt like I was being audited. I blanked out and I couldn't do well.
    Behavioural : I am not used to broadcast my strengths and weakness. Though I did. These questions are irrelevant to BA,QA, DBA, PM who are in the room. I think if I am broadcasting my characteristics, I would like to know those who are in the room.

    Best Part : As soon as I went home, I wrote the code in less than 2 hours and sent it over to the staffing agency. It would be a lie, if I said I did not use any help from Google, but the only help I used is with Java Enum. How many times in 10 years will a Java developer use on an Average. But that's not the point...I could do it with some help on Enum usage. The code was zipped and password protected.
    A day later the staffing agency calls and askes for Password, unwillingly I had to give it. Now ... this Staffing agency gives my code to another candidate and he passes the interview as he writes the code in 45 Mins- that's what I heard.
    I wish I can upload the code here....
