    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

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.
