Software Engineer (Medventive, Waltham, MA) Interview

Software Engineer (Medventive, Waltham, MA)
Waltham, MA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at McKesson in June 2010.

Interview Details – The phone conversation were intelligent and cogent and organized.

The interviewers were unorganized, uninformed, and not qualified for interviewing. The interviewers flailed at asking questions without any regard to finding anything relevant. They simply were not interested and were going though the motions.

My advice: if you are not one of the first candidates to be interviewed, do not go to the interview.

Interview Question – Some sql questions were good   Answer Question

Corporate Account Manager Interview

Corporate Account Manager
Remote, OR

I applied in-person and the process took 6 months - interviewed at McKesson.

Interview Details – The hiring and interviewing process is incredibly slow. About 4 different interviews then about a 3-6 months wait for an offer. I have heard even worse for others. The communication is near horrible and the follow-up is awful. Definitely keep applying other places while this whole process takes place because the hiring process may fall through or they may forget about you.

Interview Question – nothing out of the ordinary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Be honest what you are requesting so there are no surprises upon final interviews. That way if you are low balled you can quickly tell them you aren't interested in the position and they may increase the salary given their interest in you.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Cranberry, PA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at McKesson in August 2010.

Interview Details – After applying online, the interview process started several weeks later with a phone interview where I was asked a bit about my background. I was then asked a few softball questions about C++ which gradually got more difficult, until I could no longer answer any questions (compiler specific questions about the implementation of virtual functions via v tables).

I was brought in for an in person interview about a week later. The interview lasted about an hour and consisted of a number of questions from a panel about C# syntax, SQL, and database internals. I thought I did pretty well, but drew a couple of blanks with regard to simple concepts in C# that I typically don't think about or use in depth (in particular, I was asked to review some code using boxing/unboxing semantics and I couldn't tell if it would behave as expected or even compile, I am used to having a compiler and an IDE tell me that).

After the panel interview I was thanked for my time and never heard from them again.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

Interviewed at McKesson

Interview Details – Hiring manager was a new manager and did not ask one interview question. My next interview was with another business analyst who asked the appropriate interview questions.

Interview Question – That the hiring manager did not ask even one interview question. That should have been a red flag for what was to come.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The negotiations were verbal and not written in a contract. Therefore what I negotiated for was not upheld since it was not in writing.
