Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at NCR in March 2013.

Interview Details – The interviewing process was more laid back than expect. I interviewed for the restaurant department in Atlanta, and the HR rep was very nice and the lady who interviewed me was very very nice

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Waterloo, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at NCR in May 2014.

Interview Details – First round a phone interview, just go through my resume and a couple of simple questions like what is OOP and give me an example of design patterns etc. Second round should be a onsite but I live far away so it became a phone interview. Some resume check and a lot of technical questions. Mostly about memory management and some technical questions like XML and JMS.

Interview Question – In which ways can two processes communicate? Describe as many as possible.   Answer Question
