Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at OSIsoft in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, and the recruiter contacted me and asked me to send a few code samples that I have worked on previously.

Later I was scheduled for a phone screen with a technical lead. He reviewed the code that i had already sent and asked me few questions about the same. He asked me few technical questions about java.

There was a coding question for which we shared screen and did pair coding.

Interview Question – 1. Write a program to check if an integer is a palindrome. Was asked to improve on the code - gave him 4 or 5 different algorithms.

2. Basic java questions.
3. Code review of the code I already sent them.

Interviewed at OSIsoft

Interview Details – Before the interview, they had a email interview first, in which you need to respond to several behavior questions and provide a sample code. After that, they will contact you in a phone interview and discuss with you about the sample code. They will also ask few technical questions during this procedure. I guess if you pass this, you can get an onsite interview opportunity.

Interview Question – List 3 reasons that the OSIsoft should hire you. I only expect to give one reason. Be prepared for this.   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at OSIsoft in November 2012.

Interview Details – A manager conducted the interview. It was about an hour long I believe. The questions were really simple, not really the kind you would expect. No coding questions.

Questions:
What is a computer program?
Does a program Multitask truly? No, unless it's using multi core processors.
What components does a program use?
What's a blue screen?
What's Object Oriented programming?
What is Polymorphism? (since I mentioned polymorphism)
