Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Warrenton, VA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Rockwell Collins in February 2011.

Interview Details – I was interviewed for a experience level position. Got my offer in 1 day after interview

Very smooth and cool interview process. Started out with a presentation of my choice to a bunch of lead and junior level engineers and managers at the Warrenton facility in VA. It was followed by 7 different interviews at different levels for different positions. I did not know that.

But everyone was so patient and welcoming especially the managers. I have never given interviews like this. Questions varied from hardcore technical software engineering to my past CMMi experience.

They took all the effort to make me comfortable. Great team, I am very excited to work with them.

Interview Question – What was the biggest damaging software release scenario you handled ?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Just be honest with your past salary. They will try and match the current market salary data. Truth is the keyword in negotiations.
