    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Genscape in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found job posting on campus career services site and sent resume to recruiter. Recruiter contacted me through email to sent up initial phone interview. Conducted phone interview, last ~30mins. Recruiter said she would follow up in a week after speaking with Hiring Manager. After over a week passed I followed up and Recruiter indicated that Hiring Manager had been traveling so was delayed but that she was going to pass my resume on and would follow up in a week. Waited two more weeks and didn't hear anything, left a voice mail and it went unreturned.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Genscape.

    Interview Details

    The HR dept of Genscape is really friendly. They helped me in setting up an interview with the software engineering department. I had a phone interview as well as on-site interview. Most of the questions were based on my resume and the technologies I have worked with. They were interested in knowing how I approached different situations in previous projects. They are more keen on taking people having sound fundamental knowledge in programming languages.

    Natural Gas Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Boulder, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Genscape in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially received a call back from my online application from HR (Talent Acquisition Specialist) within a few days of submitting it. They were very helpful in explaining the company as a whole and what the initial interview process was going to be like. They were flexible in setting up a first interview at my earliest convenience. I was able to ask questions about the company over the phone, and they asked some preliminary basic questions about my resume and experience. My interview took place at the Boulder office and I interviewed with three employees on the gas team, one of them being my future manager. The interview went really smoothly and the interview was mainly a dialogue back and forth about my resume and work experiences and how that will translate into a role with the company. They did a good job of explaining what the company did, but my (future) job duties could have been better explained at the time of the interview. Besides that, when leaving the interview I instantly felt like I was a part of the Genscape team and felt confident I would receive an offer. I was able to talk with them about the work culture at Genscape in addition to the normal interview dialogue that takes place.

    Applied online and received initial screen phone call. After initial screening I had a technical phone interview with the department head that lasted about a hour.

During this panel I was given a basic Java development skills test. The interviewers were all technically proficient and asked very pointed questions to gauge my technical expertise and ability to perform under pressure.
