Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Lexington-Fayette, KY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lexmark International in July 2010.

Interview Details – HR phone interview followed by a technical phone interview with a team of people. After that I was flown to Lexington for an all day (8 to 4) onsite interview with various managers.
It was tiring as I was shuttled between buildings and effectively had five interviews back to back plus lunch with some employees. I was treated well and overall it wasn't too bad an experience and I learned a lot about the company and the work.

Interview Question – Lots of general questions about C++ and how polymorphism/runtime binding is actually implemented. Asked basic question on how to multiply a number if the processor did not have multiplication hardware.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate as the offer was fair

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lexmark International.

Interview Details – 1st round was a written exam based on OOP principles.
2nd round was technical interview with local managers. It was also on OOP principles and some puzzles (they can also ask about your projects and how you did them). This is a pretty good interview and requires a little study and dedication.
3rd round was technical interview with international manager. This round is more about a broader view and some general techniques that you have used in your written examination and how you could have improved it.
4th round is HR round. This I felt was more of a formality and unless one does anything very offensive should not be a problem.

Interview Question – It was based on graph traversal   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Calcutta (India)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Lexmark International in October 2011.

Interview Details – interview was conducted in a discussion room with 3 people on the panel. Questions ranged from basic computer perception to problem solving and puzzles. It was followed by a 90 minutes programming round where a particular problem was to be programmed on paper. The problem was not tough but required a detail knowledge of the various design patterns.
people on the panel were friendly and seemed quite happy in their roles.
Found out that the work Culture at kolkata Lexmark is quite dodgy and almost all of the former employees are dissatisfied with the company.

Interview Question – design a printer spooling program to emulate the print manager for managing the documents inputted to a printer.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – compensation package was not acceptable
