Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NCR (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

Interview

I applied for this position through my school's career fair. I got contact 2-3 weeks later for a brief phone interview going over the achievements on my resume and scheduling an in person interview 2 weeks later. Now I must say that being in grad school and having had 2 years of work experience made things easy on the interview but below is more details. The process lasted about 3 hours which according to my recruiter depending on how well I would perform during each phase. The first one, I was given a paper test. The different topics were C#, object oriented, C/C++ & memory management, Sql concepts, Javascript, iOS and Android. The test is impossible to finish in an hour so don't waste time on the concept you do not know. I believe it is a pretty generic test except maybe for the last 2 parts since my position is more focussed on mobile developement. Afterward I had an in person interview with one of the team lead where I was given 2 programming problems to solve on a white board. The last hour another developer questioned me specifically about Android. At the end I got to talk to the director for a few minutes.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NCR (Edinburgh, Scotland (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The whole process consisted of 3 parts: phone interview, coding assignment, face-to-face interview. It was a great experience and I absolutely loved it. The phone interview was conducted by an experienced engineer who was very friendly and helpful. The coding assignment was very interesting and engaging. The last part was difficult but the interviewers (senior engineers) were friendly and supportive. Overall, an excellent experience, gave me a great feeling about the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at NCR (Prague (Czech Republic)).

    Interview

    First, you solve a short programming task in one hour. If you can pass this, they invite you to a four hour interview. What happens in four hours? 1st hour: Test (General Programming, C++, XML, SQL, C#) 2nd hour: Review of your test, more questions depending on your results 3rd hour: A higher-level interview (component design, or architecture) 4th hour: Interview with development manager What distinguishes their questions? Their questions are not based on basic Computer Science problems (like in Microsoft or Google). They are very language-specific. Lots of details about C++, SQL, C# etc..
