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...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gemalto (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1 hour 15 minutes - technical written test. 60++ questions(2 department question) Questions: HEX to decimal conversion, swap of 2 variable without 3rd variable, probability question, those questions like there are 6 people sit around table, who don't want sit with who and who must sit next to who, java object and class understanding and syntax analysis and expected compile/runtime error, brain teaser question, english grammar, paragraph reading. There are easy and difficult question for me. But most importantly bring a calculator,remain calm and be creative. 3 hours - another 4 interview consist of embedded team, project leader of secured transaction team, manager of secured transaction team, and lastly HR hiring manager. The interviewer are friendly and fun. Asked on project ever done, why leaving last company and etc. I couldn't recall much but basically is sharing of knowledge. They explained what they doing and what each team doing. Didn't ask my technical skill, I guess we are too keen in chatting. :) They are very considerate by arrange all interview in one day after knowing I travel all the way from Malaysia.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Gemalto.

    Interview

    Somewhat simple and straightforward. Had an interview first with a team leader, where I was asked to present my undergraduate thesis, how it worked, how I made it work, and my experiences around it. Then I had an interview with the company's boss on the same day, where they explained their work in greater detail.

    Contacted by an agency. First interview with hiring manager and team lead, very nice and kind people. Normal questions about my past experiences and projects listed in resume. Contacted for a second round interview with HR manager three days after 1st interview. 2nd interview was very short, about 10 mins. No questions on my experience or HR side. Just a casual conversation about my life in Singapore. Received an offer around 3 working days later.

    The interview took place on weekend, which is fine. The interview are standard 1 HR + 1 Technical meeting, HR meeting are very easy, more like telling your skillset and what did you do. Technical question are fairly easy, not required to write a production code (pseudo-code is allowed). They just want to understand how do you solve an issue logically.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gemalto (Singapore (Singapore)) in August 2013.

    Interview

    interview was initially set up by a recruitment agency. I believe they have 2 rounds of interview. It was for the software engineering position under embedded systems and I dont have much experience in embedded but just wanted to go and see how it is. First round: 30mins technical test, mostly objective types on topics such as C programming and digital systems. The test was quite alright if u know ur theory. This was followed by face to face interview with the hiring manager. Asked a lot of detailed questions on uni projects and how i did them and what their focus was etc...
