Software Engineer IV Interview

Software Engineer IV
Las Vegas, NV

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at International Game Technology in February 2013.

Interview Details – Worked with a recruiter who got me a phone interview with one manager for a position I wasn't really interested in but that one recommended me to another who had a position more suitable for my skill set. The questions asked by the first manager were mostly technical. The second manager I spoke to on the phone asked mostly personality questions. This was followed by an in person technical interview with a group of 3 employees, followed by a face to face with the manager. Each session lasted around an hour.

Interview Question – How would you troubleshoot an out of memory error? How would you prevent it from occurring again? How would you recommend monitoring the system to ensure minimal downtime should it happen again?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate a salary 10% higher than their initial offer. I declined their first two offers on the basis of being too low.
