Staff Software QA Engineer Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Intuit.
Interview Details – Got email from a recruiter asking if they could submit my resume to their client. Skills needed matched a bit with what I had but it was more technical. I went ahead with it and the recruiter called me to do an initial phone screen. I passed, and she said I'll have an interview with the client after 2 days. Day of the interview with the client, I was very nervous and prepared all my notes about my past experiences and performance in my job, but I wasn't asked any behavioral or situational questions at all. The whole interview was very technical and lasted less than ten minutes.

Group Manager SMB Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Intuit in September 2011.
Interview Details – Multiple interviews using STAR format. The interview was casual. Do not wear a suit or tie. You will feel extremely uncomfortable. They also stress that in the hiring process. Be prepared for 6-10 interviews before having an offer. Teleconference is likely as well. The process moves pretty quickly and the interviewers take the job very seriously. They were all well prepared and professional.
Interview Question – All questions were pretty straight forward. Answer Question
Software Engineer In Quality Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Intuit in May 2014.
Interview Details – Entire process took 3 week starting with initial contact from recruiter through LinkedIn. 1st Phone screen with recruiter. 2nd Phone screen with Lead engineer 3rd onsite (5 interviews) including hiring manager
Interview Question – Interview was a mix of behavioral and technical questions.
1. Lot of behavioral questions i.e situational questions from your previous work experience
2. Technical questions ranging from OO concepts from Java, Selenium, C#, Web Services etc
3. 2 interview with Sr QA engineers ranging from behavioral questions to technical questions like reverse of string , different web-service questions like when to use soap vs rest, what put/post/get methods do etc...
In my experience, I believe the entire interview depends on that one person (other than the hiring manager) on how he/she feels about you in the interview. During the entire interview process all the developers/QA engineers kept on asking Technical/Behavioral interview questions which I feel were answered to their expectations. None of them asked me to write code on the board.
During the initial phone screen I indicated that I do not have hands on with Java in my current job. Inspite of that they decided to call me onsite.
After the exhaustive interview process the recruiter told me that I do not have hands on with some technologies they use and that is why they are not moving forward with the hiring.
My only suggestion is: It would be great if the company took individual feedback from each interviewer as compared to relying on feedback of one person for deciding on the outcome of the interview. Answer Question
