Software Developer Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Nakisa (Montreal, QC (Canada)).
4 round of micro-interviews! HR phone interview, HR on site interview (CV, background, typical non-tech questions), technical interview with R&D Managers (Relatively easy and a little bit of code), and interview with the upper manager which is nice but not important.
- Nothing special. Mostly OO concepts. Answer Question
I didn't negotiate. They base salary is good, but there is no bonus/raise!

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Nakisa (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in August 2011.
- The first interview is with HR over the phone.
- Then they will ask you to go onsite. The second day of interview first you have another interview with HR, answering regular HR questions like what are your best and worst features.
- You have to fill a form about your knowledge on different technologies and languages. (you have to rate yourself.)
- The technical interview is usually with Managers of the teams. They are hand in code.
I gave a number as salary and they told me it was out of their range. Then they offered me another number.

I applied through college or university. The process took a day – interviewed at Nakisa (Montreal, QC (Canada)) in October 2009.
Met the HR head at an on-campus recruitment fair.
Submitted resume and cover letter via email.
Got called for an interview.
Interviewed with the HR head for about 30 mins, talked about previous job experience and some behavioural questions including salary requirements. This was tricky as she really wanted me to spit out numbers first and I wasn't able to weasel my way out of it.
Then the head of Software R&D came in and I talked about my Master's thesis and he gave me two technical questions
* Write and algorithm to find the 5th element from the end traversing the list only once
* Design a database schema for a library system with different types of media
This was my first technical interview and I messed up at a couple of places
* What do you know about Nakisa? (I had no clue, I spit out whatever I'd seen on the website. Make sure you research the company and the position)
* The first tech. question... it is pretty standard but I couldn't figure out how to do it. Easiest is to use a data structure like a stack or maintain 2 pointers.
I got a really negative vibe from the tech guy. He seemed a little cocky and wouldn't help me out on the drawing board, just sat there staring at me. Also, they said .Net & Java but the first thing he asked me was if I was interested in flex programming.
