Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
London, England (UK)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Merrill Lynch in September 2009.

Interview Details – The office was impressive and while being showed round the trading floor etc at 6:00pm I saw very few people left in the building. My interviewers were mid-level developers and seemed pretty unfriendly they did however really know they're stuff. It seemed obvious that they were over worked and very tired meaning they weren't overly enthusiastic about the role. My impression is the company was mediocre and I don't think I would have accepted an offer if I had got it.

Interview Question – Describe the process of Java serialization   Answer Question
