    Software Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview was a straight forward Java full stack developer type of conversation. The interviewer asked about my experience and then followed up with some technical question. I was fairly confident I answered them all correctly. After the technical test, it led to me just asking him questions about the development team, methodologies, work-life balance...

    Average Interview

    Software Development Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through a friend. HR contacted me to schedule an interview for Monday. She sent me the job description for "Software Development Manager", and the names and title of people who will interview me over the phone (3 people). I think the people who are interviewing me are located in a different country, and unfortunately, none of them was able to talk to me on the scheduled time. I contacted HR, and she is very apologetic and nice. She rescheduled my interview with a different manager for the next day. During my interview, I found out the interview is for team lead position, not the software development manager that I was told by HR. I still continued with the interview just to get some practice but I was a bit disappointed. Gemalto's HR is awesome, but the managers seems a little bit unorganized. (Maybe I'm still a bit bitter.... not sure).

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Process was very fast once it got moving. Scheduling seemed to be a real issue for them, the date changed repeatedly and interviewer was over an hour late. Testing & questions were very in-depth. Interviewer appreciated straight answers. HR very thorough during on-boarding, covered all topics related to HR aspects (benefits, etc..) and was available for follow up after I started.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical written test went into many areas I had no documented expertise in, questions within my area pushed me to the limits of my knowledge. No unexpected questions, no real difficult ones since interviewer was as technical as I am and I was straightforward if I did not know.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The first one was in line with the market and close to what I expected, so I took it. I wanted the technical aspect of the job based on the companies potential.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gemalto (Fort Worth, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview was via phone. The second interview was in Austin. It was a bit nerve racking not being able to see the location of where you are working but understandable given the business reasons.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions on UDP. It is not necessarly an important part of a service delivery manager role but it does seem to help to have a technial background.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation for salary or adjustment of vacation time, which gives you an understand of the company culture and their willingness to try to retain talent.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Gemalto (Austin, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Hiring process was OK but they have no goals. They tell something else in interview and actual work is different. Job description is worst. Managers are basically only mouth pieces with no knowledge and best in day dreaming looking for free softwares always even for production environment and the worst part is they donot want to give time to do research for free softwares.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gemalto (Montgomeryville, PA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I meet with one of the managers in the department I would work in. The staffing agency had not prepared me very well and the first few minutes were spent clarifying what the job was that I was interviewing for. otherwise it was fairly painless and we spoke mostly in generalities and about the business culture of Gemalto and Lean Management.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Could not start when they wanted. Too far drive, for a temporary position and too little compensation.
