Software Implementation Engineer Interview

Software Implementation Engineer
Carmel, IN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Experian in January 2013.

Interview Details – Was contacted via a recruiter to interview for position in Carmel. Recruiter was very nice and helpful. Passed the first 2 phone interviews then went to Carmel for an onsite interview. Interview went incredibly well. Office was very depressing and dark and the cubicle setup was really horrible looking. Got a phone call the next day that they decided to go with someone further along in the interview process. Talked with the recruiter and determined that this position was already filled and I was never actually being considered. Completely unprofessional and a waste of time.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Mostly behavioral.   Answer Question
