    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MAQ Software (Redmond, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had handed my resume to the company in a career fair. I was contacted by the company two months later if I was interested in the summer internship. A telephonic introduction was followed by in-person interview with two rounds- one technical and one HR. I was told that results will be out in a week but it was not out till 3 weeks. There were no replies of my email inquiries and was told I am selected after I inquired the 3rd time. Also HR said she sent emails to my references for background check but my references did not get any such email. After I asked her to send again to all of them, she just sent to one of my reference, saying she is too busy.

    • I was asked C# and SQL questions and also algorithmic puzzles in technical interview.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at MAQ Software in April 2015.

    Interview

    Emailing - Setup a time for a phone screen.
    Phone Screen - Asked why I was interested in the position. Asked if I had any questions about the position. I asked about work-life balance, as many have made negative reviews based on that aspect alone. I got a very dodgy response from the interviewer. He stated that it depends what position I am given (which didn't make sense since this screen was for the SDE position). I also was not prepared on why I was seeking a position at MAQ Software. I replied with a basic general response saying that I am entry-level and am interested in working on fast-paced projects. Overall, I got the idea that entry-level SDE are just there to communicate with their offices in India since I would have been given a Project Manager title.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at MAQ Software (Redmond, WA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    I met with three people, one at a time. The first interviewer was intense but I think he was mostly trying to weed out anyone that wasn't a good fit for the company.
    The second interviewer asked questions more about my background and passions, as well as my educational experience.
    The third lady that interviewed me was super nice and described the role to me and a little about the company and what it'd take to be successful.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The offer they made me was very fair and comparable to my peers. My advice would be to take the offer and prove your worth, the company will reward your hard work with raises and bonuses.
