    Interview Details

    The company did a presentation at my school. I interviewed with them that afternoon. I had a technical interview first. Then I had a problem solving interview where we discussed both my project experience and some critical thinking problems. They were very friendly and very easy to talk with. When I got stuck with some of the problem solving questions the interviewer gave me some hints to help me discover a better answer.

    Interview Details

    With over 15 years of experience building web applications, I was interviewed by a developer just out of college who was barely able to speak English. Further, he was unable to recognize a correct answer to a question about SQL (which I later confirmed to be correct).

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer asked me to craft a SQL statement that would return a specific result set. I had to ask him to repeat himself a number of times because of his inability to properly speak English.   View Answer

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at REI Systems in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The career services at my school set up the initial interview overnight (I was told the day before the interview). The interview was a three step process. First: I spoke with with a senior software engineer at the company on the phone, Second: I spoke with an HR representative about my personality, and Last: I spoke with the person who would be my boss for his own knowledge of what kind of person I was.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at REI Systems in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter was very unprofessional in handling the interview process.....advised me of how to carry, present and prepare myself which I felt is not her business and she did not get back and let me know the interview results.

    They made me wait in the lobby for quite some time and no apology. The person who interviewed me did not seem to be interested in finding out how I would contribute to their team or organization. Just asked me a bunch of questions most of which were irrelevant to the position I was interviewing. The interview also ended very abruptly, the second person who was supposed to interview me had already left. What a weird experience....Certainly would not want to work with such people.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at REI Systems in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone screening was a phone interview. I got their phone call after 5 hours of the scheduled time and no apology from the interviewer. After a week, they called me for face to face interview. It was supposed to be 2 hours, but they made it 3 hours. They kept me waiting in the lobby for 30 minutes. Three people interviewed one after another. There were lot of analytical questions like number guessing, pan balance questions and logical puzzles. The HR person did not get back and let me know the interview results. They pay less and expect more work from their employees. Most of the employees work till late nights and also in weekends.

    Interview Questions
    • I have 9 coins, out of which 8 coins are identical in weight and one is lighter in weight. Is it possible to find the light weight coin with only two weighings, using pan balance?   View Answers (2)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at REI Systems in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview took about 1/2 hour and was mostly technical questions. I felt that I was well prepared for this so I was able to answer these. When not, interviewer moved along and did not penalize me for this. In person interview was more for personality and behavior. Also this had a technical side. Nothing too unusual.

    Interview Questions
    • For a 10x10x10 cube, 1000 cubes total (10^3), and 8^3 don't have paint on them.
      And what fraction of the cubes would have a painted side upward?
