    Senior Software Engineer - Java Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I was given an online version of an IQ test, a few basic coding problems to solve in a half hour, and asked about basic core Java concepts. Several different development team members took part in the interview. Overall the interview probably took about an hour and a half. They were pretty respectful compared to other interviews I've done in the area.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DrFirst.

    Interview Details

    Email/Phone screen with HR after being contacted through LinkedIn.
    There was a follow up call first with the CIO. And another call with the company president.
    I was then flown in for on site interview to conduct a presentation with a panel of company leaders as well as go through a Q and A.

    Overally the interview process from the phone calls to the onsite went quite smoothly. Went it came time to negotiate the offer things fell apart.

    Interview Questions
    • There were a few questions digging quite deep into my resume from several years back that did not necessarily relate to the current position. I had to peel back a few layers to provide adequate answers.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was pulled upon initial counter from my end. Typically every offer contains some level of negotiation, especially when the position is a higher ranking position within the company with direct reports within product management. The offer being pulled was surprising due to no mention that the intitial offer was firm, and my counter was on the low end of the range I provided when pressed for my expectations during the interview process.

    Non-IT Management Level Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DrFirst in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was referred to client by recruiter after their screening. Had telephone interview with the HR recruiting manager, who was very professional, nice and asked relevant questions. The hiring manager telephone interview was scheduled quickly. The hiring manager was out of the office when taking the call and didn't have my resume. This made the conversation difficult. Should have asked to stop and continue interview. Both agreed position may not be best fit for me, so I declined to proceed further.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at DrFirst.

    Interview Details

    The process was straight forward.
    5 programming challenges to implement in java on a paper and then a technical interview with technical team.
    Then some technical question about my experience,... and why I'm looking for a new job and normal thing.
    I was not willing to be employed there because of many negative post on this website about the way the expect their employees to work overtime also some bad user experiences from their customer ( I found those info 2-3 hours before the interview).
    But the interview was not very challenging and It was the way I expected it .

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screening is done by recruiter. Later on, I was invited to their office for on-site interview. I went through three rounds of interview with different management teams. It were no break in between. You might have to request water or restroom break. First was the technical manager to test my technical background and knowledge. He was very through. Second round was the VP for behavioral interview. Third around was from Project management team for more behavioral and problem solving questions. I ran into their CEO & CMO in the hall way.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at DrFirst.

    Interview Details

    One of the most stupid interviewer, he happened to a manager and the questions were like a rapid fire round, did not give me time to retrospect. I am not sure if they really wanted to hire or they just so happened to interview me to get a feel of how they conduct there interview. To make matters even worse the recruiter did not even get back with the feedback despite mailing him and sending repeated reminders. What a shame!

    Interview Questions

    Quality Assurance Testing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DrFirst.

    Interview Details

    First there was a preliminary interview with the senior recruiter. He was extremely friendly and I had a great 20 minute conversation with him. The interview consists of many standard questions (walk through your resume, why are you leaving your company, salary requirements, what automated testing tools you are familiar with, what languages you are familiar with).

    After the interview, he asked me if I would be available for a phone interview with the head of the QA team. This interview was curt and the interviewer was unfriendly and a bit rude. The interview lasted a total of 3 minutes and 40 seconds. I figured it was just out of courtesy sake. Two weeks later I get a call from the senior recruiter asking me for another phone interview with the CEO or head of Engineering. He gave me a two hour window in which they could call. I never got a call.
    This company is extremely unprofessional and I will be disregarding any new communication.
