    Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Interactive Intelligence (Indianapolis, IN) in May 2009.

    Interview

    A ridiculously hard experience overall. Three straight hours of interviews including all areas of the department, each 30 minutes long. What was upsetting was the fact that I had the skills necessary given in the job application, but the interview covered MANY more skills and subjects not mentioned in the job description. I feel like I was turned down on those subjects, not the ones actually shown in the job description. Also, even though the HR folks said they "Pride" themselves on calling applicants soon after interviews, no matter the outcome, I was never given an answer. I had to badger HR just to get a "no thanks" response after a week.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Interactive Intelligence (Jacksonville, FL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    Intern salary did not appear to be negotiable. I tried to counteroffer, however that did not make them increase the offer.
