Software Developer Interview

Software Developer

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Nortel Networks in January 2007.

Interview Details – First, there was a fairly standard phone interview directly with the manager - no HR involvement. Standard questions were asked: Describe your experience with software development, projects worked on and a chance to ask some questions at the end. After that, an on-site interview was scheduled within a week.

The on-site interview was a panel interview with several people, including the manager, team lead and possible co-workers. Was asked to write code on a whiteboard, implementing fairly straightforward methods to demonstrate that I understood the language and problem domains. Talked a bit about the code and discussed alternate ways to arrive at the solution. Was then asked again to describe projects and past experience.

Overall, a fair process and they were quick to get back to me, within a week.

Interview Question – Implement a method to accomplish X (where X is a fairly trivial problem) and describe what exceptions it should throw, as well as what parameters it should take and the return type.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much leeway with negotiations, though relocation was provided after some haggling.
