I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MRI Software in November 2013.
Interview Details – 1. I applied online. The online system was cumbersome. I've seen better but have seen worse.
2. I was contacted by a HR recruiter to review my resume and was asked to take an online test.
3. I took the online test from home. This test takes two hours to complete.
4. I was asked to come in for in-person interviews. One interview with a peer and one interview with the VP of the unit. I also had to take a shortened version of the test. I guess they do this to make sure you didn't cheat the first time. The interviews were fine, though I felt somewhat disrespected when the VP cut our interview short because he had to go to another meeting. Overall, I spent around 3 hours at their office.
5. After giving up around 7 hours of my time to this position after submitting my application, including spending significant time with three people in the organization, I was sent an automated message saying they were not interested in hiring me.
While I took several issues with their hiring process, I found my #5 point to be the worst. It shows a complete lack of respect for their prospective candidates to not at least send a message from a personal email account telling the candidate they weren't hired.
The fact that they make you jump through hoops with their computerized testing assessments should send you enough of a message about the level of respect they show their applicants, let alone their employees.
After touring their offices, it looked like a place trying to provide their employees benefits, yet giving them a terrible working environment. After reading other reviews, this environment is made worse by the management. The offices had amenities like a cafeteria and gym, but the office floors were just a huge cubical farm. The software development area looked like programmers were kept right on top of one another.
I just don't see the long-term appeal of working at a place like this. Maybe it's good for a first job or transitional job to get experience and move on.
Interview Question – It was less of an interview and more of a discussion. View Answer
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at MRI Software in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied for this position online, and was emailed by a recruiter within a few days, asking me to fill out a standard assessment. The assessment was basically like an IQ test, with various math, spatial and comprehension questions.
The day after the assessment test, I was contacted and asked about having a phone interview. On the phone interview, I was asked standard HR'ish questions about my ability to work in the US, whether I'd be fine with background checks, etc. At the conclusion, the recruiter told me he'd talk with his counterparts and get in touch unless anyone on his team had major objections.
A couple of days later, I was contacted and asked if I'd be interested in having an interview onsite. I agreed, and showed up at the agreed-on date/time. They greeted me promptly, and had me go through the same type of assessment onsite as I did remotely. Once that was done, I was given a tour, then met with a couple of people (including the manager), and asked a series of technical questions and personality questions like "How will I know if you're frustrated?". After I finished this part, I was walked back to the recruiter and then shown out.
A day or two after that, I was called and verbally made an offer, which I accepted. The paperwork for the written offer, drug test directions, etc. were sent and completed.
All in all, the interview experience was really good. MRI was responsive, the recruiter I dealt with was a cool guy, as were the guys on my to-be team.
Interview Question – The most difficult question for me was why did I leave consulting for an in-house job, but this isn't a question most people will get. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I did not attempt to negotiate. I made was asked early what I was making currently, and since I think it's a pretty good salary for the position, I said I'd be fine with the same.

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at MRI Software in June 2012.
Interview Details – Very lengthy up front process. The IQ test and personality profile that others have mentioned takes about 2 hours before the interview, then you have to take another round in person if you make it to the second, in-person interview. Like others, I was confused as to the value of this.
In the actual development working area it seems they've tried to really implement a full-bore agile process. There is no privacy at all as it is a completely open workspace. There were some rooms where I was told people could go to work things out, but they were all empty where I was there. Quality of machines/workspace looked to be average at best. There is a team of "coaches" that I was unsure what their real purpose was.
Interview Question – The IQ test had a section with word math problems on things like proportions. The longer you've been out of high school, the harder that section likely will be. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MRI Software in June 2012.
Interview Details – Rigorous hiring process, consisted of a phone interview, an aptitude test, then an in house aptitude test and in person interview. It is nice that the VP of your department generally does the interviewing, it is a degree of respect that most companies wouldn't go for. After a few days, they will get back to you and let you know if you were accepted or not.
Interview Question – What drove you to MRI? - I'm not really sure what they were looking for here, I guess do your research. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at MRI Software in June 2012.
Interview Details – After I submitted a resume I was emailed an IQ test. Could not figure out what the purpose would be for an IQ test for the position that I applied for. If I was to not pass this phase and someone who was unqualified for this position should get lucky and do better, would that make them more qualified??
