Interview Questions
  • I had background in there software, there for nothing was very difficult or surprising. In chicago I had to write some code for a recursive function to meet a specific need.,   View Answer
Negotiation Details
I gave them a range and they of coarse started at the lowest end even though I nailed the interview. Fortuently I made my lowest number the number I was really wanting and that anything more was a bonus in my mind. I did ask why they offered what they did in the range I provided and they were able to explain with decent logic. As well as the company stock helps you not worry about it.

    Senior Implementation Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Guidewire in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Referred by a Guidewire employee and I got a very good first impression of the company from him. Interview process, though, is a bit lengthy and it took me more than a month to go through it. One thing I liked about the company and interviewers is that everyone takes time to talk about the company and they show the pride being part of Guidewire.
    Round 1 - Started with HR who conducted screening interview on phone to make sure that I have enough hands-on coding experience not just high level design or architecture.
    Round 2 - Technical Phone interview with more emphasis on OOPS concepts and basic Java / JEE questions
    Round 3 - Coding exam for 3 hours with 3 coding problems to solve. First one is on JDBC, second one is to fix a buggy and inefficient program on Java I/O and the last one is on JMS.
    Round 4 - Another technical Phone interview, this time, not only on Java / JEE basics but also on design and architecture
    Round 5 - I was called to Chicago for 3 back-to-back personal interviews each interview lasting appox. 1 hour. Two of them are technical in nature and the last one was more on communication, interpersonal skills and domain experience. I was asked to write a program on the fly in one of the technical interviews. I was asked to talk about my prior project experience and was asked to explain design decisions that I had to take in my previous projects.
