Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Open Access Technology International.
Interview Details – A ridiculous bunch of questions. You would think you are going to work at the pentagon.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation phase.
I applied online - interviewed at Open Access Technology International in August 2013.
Interview Details – Bizarre. Did not meet my future prospective supervisor, nor teammates. No discussion of job title, projects; no specific job posting. I was part of a group. We were given two written tests: the first covered programming and computer languages, the second was pure math (story problems, logic, combinations and permutations, algebra). Both were multiple choice, but that doesn't mean easy. The test proctor (aka HR lady) told us not to worry too much about finishing, especially the math test - because we were not expected to finish it. This made me feel better - especially when time ran out on the math test.
In the second phase of the interview, the CEO himself spoke to us. He read us each our scores on the two written exams we had just taken (!) asked us a little about our background and then explained their hiring process a little.
Meritocracy + Your Score on Written Exams => Autocracy
Towards the end, he had us jot-down our salary expectation on the back of a sheet of paper. Actually, it was the back of the dossiers he had on each of us.
The one thing that was made clear: every group in the company meets every day at 8am.
Interview Question – The written math test was difficult. The programming languages test not so.
During the CEO's question time, just be prepared to say a little about your programming background. Less is more. He is the CEO and you are one in a group of six (do the time-is-money math). View Answer
Reason for Declining – The interview process made me uncomfortable and there were other red-flags.
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Open Access Technology International in May 2013.
Interview Details – Started off with a pretty standard reqruitment test. All of the languages you would expect and then there was a group interview with the CEO. I was extremely impressed to see the CEO so involved with the hiring process.
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Open Access Technology International in June 2013.
Interview Details – The interview was super bizarre. It was a group interview with five other candidates and the CFO. The CFO spent half the time justifying why she uses the hiring process she does and then spewed a bunch of propaganda about why the company was so great. Next, she went around and asked each candidate approximately one question based on his or her resume (absolutely nothing difficult or in depth.) Finally, she let us ask questions, but then responded in a way that conveyed she thought they were stupid or a waste of time. Following the interview, I didn't hear anything for two months, after which I was sent a form email telling me they didn't have a position for me. This was a huge waste of time.
Interview Question – The lack of any meaningful questions was rather unexpected. Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
I applied online and interviewed at Open Access Technology International.
Interview Details – I applied on a campus recruiter site and got a phone call for an interview invitation within 2 days. The interview session has 3 parts, simple program concepts test, Math test and finally a group interview. Both the tests are multiple choices. Some are out of context. For my amusement the interview and test assessment is conducted by the CEO, a PHD holder in electrical engineering.
Interview Question – All questions are regarding your past programming and SQL database experience Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Open Access Technology International.
Interview Question – Didn't ask any unexpected question. Answer Question
I interviewed at Open Access Technology International in March 2013.
Interview Details – A paper test first with 45 questions. 15 math, 15 computer science knowledge, 15 personality. Then the interviewer asks about programming skills, web development skills, projects you have done. Pretty simply and easy.

Interview Details – Became aware of OATI through a college recruiter, had an on campus interview and later on went to the OATI headquarters for an interview. There was a 45 minute long Math/Computer Science test (you can use a calculator). I felt a lot of the questions were worded poorly, which led to confusion. It's only multiple choice so you cannot write comments on what your thought process was.
The interview was with their CEO (he does all of the interviewing). Talked about what languages and projects I've worked on, a lot of questions about data bases.
Fairly easy test/interview.
Interview Question – What is an index in SQL, and why would you use an index? Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I later found out I had friends who worked there a few years back and they highly advised me not to work for OATI. They said OATI had very poor management, and they liked to micromanage. Also their wage offer was way below average for the position (non-negotiable).
Interviewed at Open Access Technology International
Interview Details – I submitted my resume on career fair. Then they asked for an on-site interview. Then went through an interview. all easy basic questions.
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Open Access Technology International in May 2011.
Interview Details – I first received a call from an HR executive who went over a few basic questions about my current status, visa requirements etc. She then asked me things like - how would you deal with stress etc. This call was followed up by a call from the receptionist at the office informing me that I had been set up for an interview with one of the managers. The actual interview was thoroughly technical with difficulty of question ranging from trivial to fairly difficult. The emphasis seemed to be on prior projects and experience
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate
