- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I cut the interview short when I was informed that I would be required to submit my entire personal tax returns before an offer would be made. They said they want to ensure you made said amount. It's nonsense and it's used to put you in a weak negotiating position.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NICE Systems (Davis, CA) in April 2015.
Mostly behavioral questions, the best part is that the tech questions doesn't require code. HR is extremely nice and extremely helpful throughout the whole process. I got my interview after a job fair here in school. The interview was through the phone and it took about 30 minutes for the whole interview.
- What language do you program in and what architectural decisions have you made with it? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NICE Systems.
I ended the interview. Nice demands to see your personal tax returns in return for offering a mediocre base salary. Unacceptable for sub 100k base. It's really used to weaken your ability to negotiate salary under the guise of we have to validate you made this money. That's what HR depts. are for not my tax returns.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NICE Systems in March 2015.
Went to their desk at college career fair and gave my resume and chatted with their representative. Got a response about a month after. Had a difficult time communicating with their representative, due to failed phone appointments on their part. Finally scheduled a phone interview that lasted 30 minutes. Asked more behavioral questions and knowledge of certain aspects of computer science. No programming questions. Didn't get back to me for 3 weeks, telling me they were full. Overall, very disorganized on their part, and made the process less than ideal.
- Was there a time where you had to work in a group? If so, did you run into any problems? Answer Question
- No Offer
Met them at career fair, impressed them enough to get invited to Intern Day where a bunch of students come to the company, learn about what they do, and interview. Process consisted of 4 group interview sessions which we're mostly behavioral questions. It was a bit awkward as you were with the same group that rotated from room to room, while questions were mostly similar so you'd hear the same stories over and over again.
- 3/4 of the sessions were behavioral, focusing on how you work in groups and deal with problems, and the last was easy programming Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at NICE Systems (Paramus, NJ) in August 2014.
Got called after 2 weeks of applying on their website. 5 people interviewed, were impressed and . offered me the position. However I knew I wasn't accepting the position when I walked out because of the questions asked by one of the management guys. Why do I have a gpa of 3.8 and not 4? what kind of a question is that???? In short - the HR and management is BAD. disorganized and full of attitude (esp. management). I have a friend who works there and referred me, he just quit a few months ago!

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NICE Systems (Redwood City, CA).
We were brought to the campus for an Intern day. There we were put through group interviews with 5 behavioral and two technicals, one of which is a soft technical that has brain teasers and tests your knowledge you learned in your classes. The people were great and environment was welcoming. They send you an email of whether or not you received your internship that includes which portion of the interview you did best in and which you did the worst.
- Most of the questions were very straightforward for the technicals. Its definitely doable after reviewing a coding interview book. They look more for a fit into the company rather than technical prowess. Answer Question
- No OfferPositive Experience
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NICE Systems.
I was notified via phone call about the company's initial interest and was invited to attend one of their Intern Days. During Intern Day, all the applicants went through MMI, sort of a round robin kind of interview style. There were 5 interviews varying from behavioral to technical questions. In between interviews, company representatives gave short R&D demos and overviews.
- There were many behavioral and logic questions. Answer Question
- No Offer
Had four onsite interviews, which were mostly questions about experiences and past projects, as well as a few behavioral questions. Also completed a few short programming exercises individually. These ranged from relatively easy to somewhat tricky. Their office was in the process of renovation and moving, so it looked kind of empty at the moment.
- What was the most difficult question you have received? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at NICE Systems (Dallas, TX) in March 2014.
They have a special way of interviewing people. The day I went to their office, there were 30 other candidates and they "group interviewed" everyone. The 30 were divided into 4 batches. Each batch having 7 or 8 people. There were four rounds of interview out of which 2 were behavioural. They ask you questions like "What is the one thing you would go back and change in your life? " All these questions will be asked to with your group members. Each person has to answer this. 1 round will be a puzzle/tech round where they will give you a question paper and you have to write your answers. The tech questions will be related to testing. The last tech round was also written and they focussed on Java. All OOP concepts and 2 programs in java were asked. You had to write down then code. The selection will be arbit and random as they have no way of right candidate with only behavioural interviews.
