Difficult Interview

Solutions Engineer Interview

Solutions Engineer
Broomfield, CO

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Esri in January 2014.

Interview Details – It was a 3-step interview process. First was a call from HR in Redlands, which covered the basics of the job and clarified the position. The second was an interview with the manager of Solutions Engineers. More of a technical/personality interview. The third was the beast. An all-day interview with 6 different people within Esri, along with giving a 15 minute presentation on a topic.

Interview Question – Be ready to answer the same question multiple times. I feel like the most unexpected question was "If you are NOT chosen to work here, how would you convince me otherwise?"   View Answer

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Esri.

Interview Details – Initial process was an interview with a recruiter where they set salary expectations, gave a sense of the company's process, etc. Didn't ask many technical questions.

Second was a morning interview with the team. Included a half hour interview with a manager, who was mainly interested in geospatial experience, industry insights, etc. Second was a panel interview with the team and was primarily technical (my background, technologies I've used, most complicated project I'd worked on. Followed by an interview with their tech lead and with a developer, which went into more technical detail.

Interview Question – No particular questions come to mind. Was a fairly standard technical interview without any coding exercises or algorithmic questions.   Answer Question
