Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Beijing, Beijing (China)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at SAS Institute in August 2010.

Interview Details – I got the interview through employee referral. SAS contacts me the first minute they received my resume. The interview process consists of three phases, all with 1:1 form. First round interview is held with team manager, mainly about techniques, along with a test on algorithm, coding skills and problem-solving abilities. Second round interview is with HR hiring manager. He will ask questions about the reason you left your former employer, why you want to join SAS, what your career plans, etc, basically open questions. The final round is talking with general manager.

Interview Question – Why did you choose a traditional software company instead of an internet company such as google.com or baidu.com?   Answer Question
