IT Strategists Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at IT Strategists.
Interview Details – There was an initial screening process where I was given a project that was to be completed within 4 hours. The project is a bit open ended and you're not expected to complete it. My specific project was a web scraper. I coded for 2 and half hours and didn't even complete the full implementation, since I was busy that day. However, my design was good enough to get the actual interview. The interview was fairly easy - one with the technical person and the other with the non-technical person who operates things. Questions were about basic Object Oriented Paradigms, past experiences and a few things regarding .NET.
Interview Question – None really. The initial code screen was a bit stressful since the workload is way more than what time's given to you even though you're not expected to complete it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Didn't really negotiate
Project Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at IT Strategists in June 2011.
Interview Details – The interview lasted one hour and was loosely structured. The company president conducted it in very casual attire, along with the VP who was businesslike. At the time, they were the only company employees. They told me more about the company than asked questions about myself. I was not experienced in their field (Health Information Technology) and no offer was extended. I am not sure how the interview might go for someone better qualified for this job, but I suspect it would be similar. The company has a contract to do software installations at small hospitals, and the president is well established in that field. So, even though they are a start-up, I think there is an expectation they will be reliably in business and they did say they would have regular benefits in place as they launched the business.
