The interview was 'interesting'. It was more of a get to know you. A wide variety of personalities but they seem to be nice. One person wanted me to 'convince' the person of a technology and show why/where/how I would use it. I was not so convince about the company, the challenges it would bring and the career growth to expect.

Overall good; well coordinated with timely follow up by HR. Impressive team I spoke with, they were very genuine at every step. Started with the hiring manager first, then team, followed by the executive leadership. Engaging dialog helped to determine that this was not the best fit for us both.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at SDL (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2014.
I applied for a position and received an email to setup a walk-through-the-resume, get-to-know-you interview. After the phone interview, there was a programming test that was pretty challenging. After that, I had a on-site fullday of interviews. It ended up being 30-45 minute interviews with 7 people. It was pretty scary at first, but the interviewers are pretty friendly and engaging. The interview day was a great way to share my skills and experience while also getting to know the work environment, the employees, and the projects on which they worked.
- They asked me about the programming test and the solution I submitted. They asked me about why I made certain design choices, especially in terms of speed and efficiency. They also asked me about my background and some of my interesting classes and software projects. They also asked me to answer a few programming questions by whiteboarding some code. There were also a few questions on probability and statistics. 2 Answers

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at SDL (Superior, CO).
Disorganized. Interview was conducted by a few people who clearly never conducted interview's before. It seemed like no one was expecting me there and the person who was supposed to conduct the interview was busy. The interview seemed to be questions that they quickly googled before walking into the room.
- Are you able to handle stress well Answer Question
make certain this is the industry you want to work in before accepting.
