Project Coordinator Interview

Project Coordinator

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at DrFirst.

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.

Interview Question – There was a standard I used several years ago. It came up during the interview. I was not prepared for that.   Answer Question

Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed 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 Question – A typical question everyone usually asks "why should i hire you?" but it should be in a polite manner. Sorry folks in that company did not even know how to ask that   Answer Question

Quality Assurance Testing Interview

Quality Assurance Testing
Rockville, MD

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – The interviewers will give you an example scenario in which to make test cases. There is a vending machine, give me 10 test cases.   View Answer

Marketing Department Interview

Marketing Department
Rockville, MD

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at DrFirst.

Interview Details – Before anyone explained or welcomed me to the company, I was given an IQ test. Then afterwards I sat in a panel interview with three people. I was told a few days ahead of time that I'd be meeting with six people, so this was a change.

I was very put off by one of the three interviewers, who rolled her eyes at my answers and shook her head in disappointment at everything I said. She told me it was my fault for my prior company's problems and she criticized me for taking time off from working six years ago to spend time with a baby. I considered stopping the interview in the middle because I felt like I was under attack.

I felt sorry for the two other interviewers in the room who seem like sweet people that got bulldozed out of the way and didn't get a chance to get to know me. I also wasn't given a chance to get to know them either. Someone please teach this woman some professional manners. If she is representative of the company at all, I would think this is a place that isn't family friendly, and is a hostile place to work.

Interview Question – I was asked to explain why I allowed my company to go under. She fired off numerous challenging, negatively phrased questions assuming she was right and I was wrong about everything. This woman seemed to have preconceived ideas about my prior employers without knowing anything about those businesses. Her attitude was argumentative from the moment she laid eyes on me. I could never work with someone like this, she seems to be a poor listener with a short temper.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I didn't actually get an offer, I got invited back for a second interview however I declined because I got the sense this would be a very stressful, negative environment. .
