    Software Developer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at EDUPOINT EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a phone call in about a week. I was told that I must do a programming assessment which was sent to me via email. There are two solutions that you must work through in order to be further considered. The first solution was to use at least one try and catch statement, and add in an extra class to the solution. How the problem was setup was that they want you to do is read from a text file the first and last names of people, sort by last name and output it back to a new text file. My suggestion on this is to use a list and LINQ to sort and store the names.
    The second solution given to you is to test your debugging skills. The solution is set up to read a hard-coded xml data that’s in the solution’s code. You must fix any issues with the code so it displays the proper results.

    After so many days of completing the two solutions and emailing it back. I received a call to setup a phone interview. The phone interview was delayed for about 20 minutes due to the recruiter being in a meeting. The phone interview itself was very short asking you why do you want to work here, and how much were you thinking as a salary. I just said whatever fits in their internship budget, and was told that my data be given to the hiring manager for further consideration. A week later I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. I was scheduled the next day, which didn’t give me much time to prepare for.

    In the in-person interview I was asked programming questions and personal behaviors on how you deal with certain situations. One was how you deal with a problem that you don’t know nothing about and how you go about debugging. One of the things you should know before going in are list, dictionary, hash table, arraylist, list, and access modifiers as those are something they are looking for.

    As I have been unprepared for this interview, I ended up not getting the internship job. I did, however, during my short time there seen how the work culture felt like. As a disclaimer I wasn’t there that long, maybe 40 minutes at most. I have to say it felt sort of stiff seeing at least with one employee bored out of his mind having the “just want go home” look, just staring at the screen doing nothing. The one portion of office that I did see is set up with plenty of cramped cubicles to go around. Just go in with the mentality like it as a place that has the culture of Google or any other place that removes cubicles and promotes open collaboration with fellow developers.

    Interview Questions
    • Like I said above the most difficult questions would be knowing your access modifiers and your different Generic Collections. If you know about those you should be fine in my opinion.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at EDUPOINT EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS.

    Interview Details

    A test was sent by email. It was an assessment to debug C# code. I thought it was easy. A couple days after completing that I was asked to come in for an in person interview. There I was asked some personality and simple technical questions. The whole time took like 40 minutes.

    Interview Questions
    • There were two scenarios with the test sent by email. The first is a bug scenario. The second is sorting contents while using a try/catch block.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at EDUPOINT EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter reached out after I activated resume on job boards. They supposedly had 6 opening for L1/L2 helpdesk for software support. Had 1hr in person interview with helpdesk manager and 2 team leads. 15min phone interview with VP on my drive home one day, and 45min in person interview with CEO, CIO, VP, and HR. Process took ~3 weeks total. After final interview I discussed salary and bonus plan with HR and was presented with offer letter. I requested to renegotiate salary. HR Said they would check with management and get back to me.

    Interview Questions
    • No real difficult technical questions during phone or in person interviews. It seemed more like a 'feel me out' personality test since my skills were already in line with their expectations.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was 45k salary with auto increase to 50k after 6mo. I countered with 50k salary and skip 6mo thing since I was taking a pay cut to come there as it was. HR Rescinded offer 2 days later. Reason offered was that they 'reevaluated candidates and found some with better job fit.' I call BS on that one...

    Software Developer II Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at EDUPOINT EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS.

    Interview Details

    I was sent a test via email, but I was unaware it went to my promotional spam folder. I was then called a few weeks later saying that I had until the next day to take the test. Being that I work on nights, I was never given at least 24 hours time to respond and I didn't receive a voice-mail until a day after the test was said to be due. I called and emailed asking if I could take the test, but I only received a general letter saying I wasn't selected. Most recruiters follow-up immediately to see if the candidate received their emails. There was no follow-up at all and I have not been contacted since for this position or the positions that I applied for afterwards. I'm now glad that I didn't pursue a job at Edupoint further if this is the way they "roll out their red carpet?" so to speak. It's now no secret as to why there is positions open.

    Interview Questions
    • The tests are really easy. The first is a find the bug scenario and it looks as though there is a lower case letter in a large string and when compared to the case selections, there isn't a case to handle it and C# is case-sensitive. The second test was write a sorter class. You have to read in a text file that has basic delimiting on a list of names, then parse the string after using the line reader. Then you are required to output a text file with the line writer after having the string names sorted (Using LINQ would shorten the sorter code). They also want to see basic error handling with try-catch. It looks like they allow for many classes in the namespace.   Answer Question
