    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Indus Valley Partners (Ithaca, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Gave them the resume yesterday and got a on-campus interview today. At first there was only one interviewer. He looked at my resume for some time. Seeing I had an operating system class, he asked me about basic lock&deadlock problems(how to make function thread-safe, avoid deadlock). Then a logical problem that tributes who always lie and who always tell truth. After that he asked about Java polymorphism. Then data structure like BST. Also he asked me about Javascript and SQL. Then a second interviewer came in and asked me about the possible security issues of developing mobile applications. They are concerned about local credentials and data encryption. The interviewers seem to focus on database, web front end and mobile application.

    Interview Questions

    • Talk about the possible security issues when developing a mobile app that involved user's financial account.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Indus Valley Partners (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    I had an initial interview with IVP at my school during a job fair. It was straightforward OOP/basic programming questions, some about SQL. I had a followup interview at their office with a different team member, which was more of the same. I interviewed at the new SLC office, which just opened.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the programming questions were bad, the most interesting one they asked was a logic question along the lines of the fox-chicken-grain puzzle.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I asked about the work-life balance and the interviewer told me that I'm young and shouldn't mind working 12 hour days 6 days a week. I'm not against doing that, but I wasn't thrilled that he made it sound like they expect us to do that all the time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Indus Valley Partners (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Used a recruiter for initial interview, followed by a phone interview with hiring manager and an in-person interview at their office in SLC. Interview was very informal and not much pressure. Interviewer lets the candidate lead where the interview goes, so be sure to talk about things that you are solid on.

    Interview Questions

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Indus Valley Partners (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2014.

    Interview

    4 interviews beginning with a recruiter. Recruiter checks for basic qualifications, then schedules a phone interview. My interviewer had a very thick Hindi accent; very difficult for a phone interview. Most questions were regarding my resume --be prepared to answer very specific and pointed questions about job history/experience. 1:1 interview was very friendly and casual, much easier to understand the interviewer in-person. I was asked to solve a logic puzzle, similar to what you would expect if interviewing as a programmer. Last step would be interview with upper management. I was a recent graduate and did not have enough experience to make the cut to the final round.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Indus Valley Partners in November 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted through my school. They didn't seem like the type of company I have been seeking out, but I accepted for interview experience and because they expressed interest in me. Unfortunately, the interview destroyed any interest I had in the company, as the interviewers weren't very focused, and did nothing to sell the company to me. When I would answer questions, they wouldn't do anything for a while, as if they expected me to say more, which made it more and more awkward as the interview went on.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to describe a time that a specific scenario had happened at a specific place that I had interned at for a short time, but I let them know that I hadn't been there for long enough to have that sort of experience.   1 Answer

    Interview

    I received a call from the HR Head of the organization. The gentleman claims to be armed with 17 years of working experience, however while speaking for good 20 mins when the call disconnected (I assume so), nobody had the courtesy to return back the call. That itself states how the company values their employees. On part of the salary discussion, the person was more inclined to push his/company's visions, rather than respecting the candidate's current comp. or expected. I do not suggest that you have to pay what the candidates asks for, but cornering the candidate does not give a great vision of the organisation. Reviewing other reviews, it seems great that no matter why the call got abruptly disconnected, I did not need to waste much time.
