Software Development Manager Interview

Software Development Manager
Burlington, MA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Nuance in March 2013.

Interview Details – Had an initial phone screening with HR and the hiring manager. This led to a first round of on site interviews with the hiring manager, lead architect and peer managers. Interview process was straightforward as they asked a lot of typical questions related to past experience. The architect had me draw out the architecture of current solution I was managing and asked why I did things certain ways. This led to a second round with some of the same people and some newer higher up people. A lot asked the same questions either from before or (where they wanted more detailed answers) or from person to person (definitely didn't have a defined plan between the managers). Had one final on site interview (the 3rd) and then never got a definite yes or no. Kept following up with HR with a we'll know more next week. Additionally, was told 2x that it would be the final step in the interview process when it wasn't.

Interview Question – Most unexpected question was because a number of people asked it so it made me wary about the environment. Asked if given the opportunity in a meeting would I speak up during a meeting if I disagreed with views or would I be quiet and follow up later. Since it was asked a few times and the fact they said a lot of communication is done through email seemed like an issue.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Content Specialist Intern Interview

Content Specialist Intern

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Nuance in April 2014.

Interview Details – There was no initial phone screen by a recruiter, but a phone interview with three people that lasted about 2 hours. Apparently the interview was supposed to be conducted in-person, but HR messed up somehow. Getting the interview to start was cumbersome and involved calling dialing a conference number and downloading some conference screen-share program which I was not aware of beforehand. Communication was lacking. The questions asked at the interview were more technical than I had anticipated considering the position, and should've been conducted at an on-site second interview instead.

They barely touched my resume and didn't seem interested in me as a person.

After the interview they told me they would have a response by tomorrow, and the next day I received a rejection voicemail.

Interview Question – How do you respond to a customer when they ask for a frequent IVA update but you are unable to do so?   View Answer
