Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Bruno, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Bruno, CA
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Responsys.

Interview Details

They are pretty good about the whole interviewing process. I had 2 phone interviews after a recruiter contacted me:
1) Team Lead.
2) Director.

Then got called into onsite interview. It was a good 5 hour interview with various aspects ranging from: SQL basics to Hadoop/BIG data to Shell scripting.

I would say the interview was a very detailed one ranging from basic questions to technically detailed questions.

Interview Questions
  • None of the questions were unexpected. If you are preparing for this interview as many people have said before me, brush up your basics from careercup for positions for programmers and data modelling and industry standard SQL/PLSQL terminologies.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Responsys in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Senior Technical Recruiter at Aptitude Staffing Solutions in regards to a SR SWE opportunity with Responsys. We went through a series of technical questions/answers and then set up an interview with the Recruiter. After the interviewing and screening process with Aptitude, I was then submitted to the Hiring Director at Responsys. We set up a phone call and face to face interview with the team at Responsys.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Responsys in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    technical questions were average (maybe a little below average) in difficulty. mostly tested people's knowledge in java, database, etc.
    decision making process was fast. i had two rounds of on site interviews each took half day. and right when i reached home after the second onsite i received the offer. this is a company with a lot of potentials.

    The interview was good. It was spread across 4 people and one of them being the hiring manager. It was a group of decent people having a in-depth knowledge of a lot of the subject. I really enjoyed talking with them.
