Software Engineer Interview
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Getty Images (Seattle, WA).
Since pair programming is important to Getty, my interview was a mock pairing session. I sat with two guys and a laptop, and was asked to solve a relatively simple coding question using TDD (test driven development). They had already set up the solution in Visual Studio and stubbed out the class we were going to write. I also had a quick chat about some trivia (aka what are SOLID principles, what does the keyword virtual mean, what's the difference between a span and div). Finally, I had a 10 min session with my potential manager, where he asked me the normal sort of questions like, why did I leave my previous company, what was the most challenging problem I had to solve, etc.
- Programming while someone watches you was a new experience for me. Answer Question

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Getty Images in September 2009.
Phone screen. All day Microsoft style interview process. A lot of technical questions which involved writing code on the whiteboard.
- Coding out the usage of an IOC container using TDD - describe the overall concept and then write a test that fails. This is difficult to do on a whiteboard... Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
They seemed more formal and buttoned down than Microsoft.
