Software Engineer, Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Interactive Intelligence in April 2014.
Interview Details – Meet with this company at a college job fair, where I kicked it off with one of the people in development department. I handed my resume and received an email with a questionnaire from HR essentially gauging how comfortable you are with the technologies they use . After that I was contacted for an interview a week or two later. After the interview I waited for and followed up every week for about 4 weeks and then I got the offer. Most calls to HR usually go unanswered, but if you email them you usually get a response back.
Interview Question – The interview was difficult, because there were two people both hammering you with technical questions. As long as you take your time to answer the questions and answer them correctly you will get an offer. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Intern salary did not appear to be negotiable. I tried to counteroffer, however that did not make them increase the offer.
Applications Developer Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Interactive Intelligence.
Interview Details – Applied online sometime in early March. Was sent an email about a week later regarding a follow up phone interview. The conversation I had with the HR staff was good, figured I'd be given another interview. After nearly a month of slim communication, I was sent an email saying that I wasn't selected to continue. I feel it might have had to do with my weaker resume, it wasn't a big loss as I was selected for another internship less than a month later.
Channel Sales Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Interactive Intelligence.

Applications Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Interactive Intelligence in September 2013.

Finance Team Member Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Interactive Intelligence
Interview Details – Very laid back process. They will ask you questions to learn about specific technical experience and then questions about you. The interviews do start out with phone call first.
Interview Question – All typical interview questions. Answer Question
Product Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 3 months - interviewed at Interactive Intelligence.
Interview Details – Recruiters need to work on communication. Numerous calls and emails went unanswered in the process with the occasional teaser that I was still being considered. People who invest a half day of time to come down at least deserve feedback. Hiring manager was on iPad the entire time. Scheduler gave me and phone interviewers different interviews times. Another phone interview had to be rescheduled 4 times. Most of the questions from all the interviewers where about reasons for leaving current job vs. qualifications for the open position.
Software Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Interactive Intelligence in February 2014.
Interview Details – I dropped a resume at a college job fair and received a call from a recruiter to take a programming skills test. I passed the skills test and was set up with a phone interview a few days later. The interview went really well. He asked a lot of questions about object orientated programming, software structures, and we discussed some about the company and working there. When I got off the phone I was pretty excited about the next step, which he said would be an onsite interview. A few days later I got an email asking instead for another phone interview. This interview went bad, the guy asking the questions either had a bad day or just didn't like me from the start. He asked a lot of the questions the other guy did (simple OOP stuff) but his tone was clearly different. After it was over and he asked if I had any questions I said no, but I hope I did ok because it sounded like he wasn't happy with me. He replied something to the effect of yep, that's why we do phone interviews before meeting people. Two days later I got a rejection email.
Interview Question – How would you go about updating computer A with information on computer B on a daily basis?
(Since I'm used to writing code (this was a developer interview) I started to describe a program I would write) he stopped me and said to think in broader terms. So I said I would have a database on A which was updated by a daily scheduled job on B to collect the into and input it. He said tersely nevermind and went on to the next question, I have no idea what he was going for.) Answer Question
