    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norcross, GA
    Application Details

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at S1 in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly standard. I met with the hiring manager and several peers both in the department that I would be working in and I also met with managers from the business units that we would be supporting. There was a panel interview later in the process with a group of managers as well where the questions and hypothetical situations were ramped up and fired off rapidly.

    Negotiation Details
    Get as much $$$ as you can up front. Raises are minimal and bonuses have not been paid in 2010 at all. Vacation, which should be easy to negotiate, is difficult for some reason. Overall, the place is short staffed and somewhat disorganized so be prepared for lots of last minute changes and frustration once the work starts.

    Performance Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at S1 in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Staffing Agency called and scheduled an interview. The HR called and confirmed the timing. After this, the HR cancelled/postponed the interview thrice with a short notice ( as low as half an hour), once while I was already on the way. They were very unprofessional with the reasons of cancellation ("It's Raining, hence Panel is not available", Panel "is" stuck in a production issue etc).

    At the interview, two guys dressed inappropriately (shirt unbuttoned) started the interview aggressively without any respect for a 12 year experienced candidate, didn't even ask for a bottled water, talking in regional languages at times.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pune (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at S1 in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a 3 step process-
    1>Aptitude test - total 4 sections - 2 technical sections(you get an option to choose between C,C++ or JAVA- I chose C! poor choice indeed :) ) and 2 sections on aptitude - questions were from R S Agarwal book- so prepare well! Sectional cut off so make sure you attempt all the sections.

    2>Technical Interview - Mostly based on data structures, prepare that well. Most of the questions were based on LinkedList, Stacks, Queues - They would ask you to write code in C as well! Be prepared 4 that.

    3>HR Interview - Surprisingly my friends with distinction got filtered from this round! they only took people with first class. Think they were worried abot the retention ratio! :) No biggie- would ask u very general questions- they need to know your background, thats it!
