    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Invited for an interview, arrived and then immediately was led to a cubicle to do an impromptu 1.5hr low-level coding test. No "hello, how are you, welcome" etc. Interviewers had extremely weak social skills and it reflects horrendously on the company.

    A 1.5hr coding test is insulting and hilarious to employees with university degrees from top schools with 10 years of programming experience.

    Verbal portion of the interview was fair and standard.

    Office layout was depressing and the area smelled of stale coffee and inactivity. Cubicle walls were high and a very old looking blue colour. Employees looked depressed, unkept and unmotivated.

    Win32 is out of date and low-level windows programming is a thing of the past.
