GSEC Software Developer Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Software Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at GSEC in September 2010.
Interview Details – Phone screen was easy, some basic java questions followed by relatively easy SQL question. The last question was the kind of ridiculous "gotcha" type of question which some interviewers like to ask , akin to the problem they had at one point and it took them a week to figure it out, but they feel compelled to ask you the same question at the phone screen. Got invited to the face to face interview. One of the interviewers was a slimeball I did not answer one question correctly (easy one) , simply because I dont remember all detail of API , the guy kept smiling without correcting me , basically behaving as if I answered it great. Other interviewers were very sceptical about my resume , it felt like I was fake in their eyes, not sure why. My overall impression is that this company does not have morals. By talking to a girl , I realized that there is a real fear of layoffs present in the building, despite current hiring. I wish good luck to a guy who will get this job, instead of me, as I dont think I could work there, even if I got an offer.
Interview Question – There were no really difficult questions , lots of questions about joins , how to do left joins etc. Answer Question
