    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at InnovaSystems International (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    The application process was good. I was brought into a room with 3 or 4 people and asked a series of questions. It lasted about an hour. Most of the questions revolved around cultural fit. Some technical questions. I was asked to talk about my history as a developer. They are an agile shop. I was then told that someone would get back to me. 3 weeks later after several phone calls of leaving messages to the HR Manger I finally received an offer letter.

    Interview Questions

    • List the values that you live by. What is the reason you are leaving your last job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The HR manager finally sent me an offer letter that was well below the market value of my position according to salary.com. He gave me some lame explanation when he finally called me back about why he wishes he could give me more but this is a privately held company. I then had to email the HR person back about how I was not happy with the offer. It was 12K less the mean for my position. t took him forever to respond. After nearly six weeks I finally accepted an offer.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at InnovaSystems International (Norfolk, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was not clear to me and I do not think that the person that hired me followed company procedures. I was solicited at a regional meeting and then I wasn't interviewed as much as brought into the office and "sold" the position. I was hesitant to accept the position because I did not have the background one would expect for the job, but the person hiring me assured me that I would be ok. I was hired and worked there for 2 years, but I was laid off in one of the first rounds of lay offs. I wish the hiring process had been followed or the person hiring me would have had repercussions for not following procedures as it lead to a lot of other inappropriate behavior and conduct.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I did negotiate, but I was not familiar with the consulting price points, so I should have asked for more money.

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at InnovaSystems International (Draper, UT) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Initially I was contacted by an HR representative who handled the process from the beginning to the time I received an offer. Normal questions about my current skills and desires for work environment, etc. Then I had a phone interview with one of the managers at the Salt Lake location, asking me some of the same questions. An interview on location followed. I was asked to prepare a short presentation on a situation in which a database would be helpful. I answered many database development related questions. The offer was made by the end of the week.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at InnovaSystems International in July 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by an internal recruiter who thought I was a good fit for the position. After speaking about the job and agreeing on our mutual interest, we had a quick phone interview. The recruiter then determined I would be a good candidate and asked that I have a phone interview with the hiring manager a few days later.

    The interview went fairly well. I knew the answers to most of the technical questions. If the manager liked my response, he always asked a followup question that was more in depth or that expanded on my answer. He assured me that it didn't matter if I knew the answer and that he was just trying to get a feel for what I knew.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at InnovaSystems International in December 2011.

    Interview

    To describe the process in one word: Efficiency. They were on the ball and seemed like really good people to work for.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was told in the initial interview that they offer "market plus 5%." I was a little startled when the offer came in and was considerably lower than market. I would have taken the offer if I didn't have any others, but...it's tough to turn down a salary that's $5k higher.
