Very Difficult Interview
Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Very Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Gateway in March 2009.
Interview Details – The interview started off with a C++ skills test. Technically it wasn't that bad and pretty easy. Three people conducted the interview in sequence. Each person I explained my background, etc. (pretty repetitive). They each asked programming questions consisting of array manipulation...how would you find this, etc.
I was also informed that they really don't use C++, and most of it was proprietary language use, so C++ "won't help you here". When asking about the position, none of the interviewers seemed to know anything about the position I was interviewing for. All in all, the people interviewing as well as the people in the office were a bit up-tight. The office structure was low-walled open cubes.
When you are finished interviewing, expect a somewhat cold response. Kind of like, "Thanks, and there's the elevator."
