Interview Details –
Probably one of the best interviews I've gone through. For the SQA position I met with an SQA Engineer, SQA Manager and CTO individually. I will say that they do their due diligence when knowing what to ask during the interview. I was asked technical questions of varying degrees of difficulty followed by some Google interview logic questions.
I was subsequently contacted a day after the interview by the CIO and offered the position. I accepted and am still currently working there.
A word of advise to those seeking employment at Hautelook within the technical/IT field: KNOW YOUR STUFF!!! If you put it on your resume, they WILL ask about it and you better be able to explain/answer any questions related to it.
Another word of advise in general when submitting your resume: It's Ok to put down a skill on your resume with which you have at least a working knowledge of. (ie, you can explain how you used it in any of your previous jobs effectively). I would suggest you NOT put down a skill that you used once in a job 2 years ago. (ie, I installed MySQL on my desktop at work 2 years ago and played around with it, so I guess I can put that on my resume).
Having said all that, Hautelook is a great place to work. The technical teams work well together and there is a very real sense of camaraderie among co-workers.
Interview Question – I was asked some basic and intermediate SQL query questions that I was not expecting. If you are applying for a technical position which requires any SQL, you should brush up before the interview. Knowing about the different JOINS would probably be helpful. Answer Question
