    Systems Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at SHI International in April 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process is very direct on technical problem solving and approach. I was presented with a few technical issues and asked how I would solve them. This is very different from most companies today which use behavioral interview. One observation is that the employees feel like a big family.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SHI International (Austin, TX) in May 2010.

    Interview

    Initially met with SHI during a career fair where one of the managers flagged me down. He was nice, though a bit forward. Ended up securing an interview with one of the managers. He wasn't really sure how to conduct one but was nice enough. After that I had 2 on 1 interview with some of upper management. It was a little intimidating but we were able to joke and have a good time.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at SHI International in November 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR with no prior knowledge of SHI. I was told a little bit about the company and position and then asked if I would be interested in this opportunity. I had expressed interest so was Immediately interviewed while on the same phone call. Very standard interview questions about my experiences, strengths and weaknesses. I was then asked if I would like to schedule an in person interview. During my interview I met with the same person I had interviewed with over the phone. I then interviewed with someone from the department of the position i was applying. Both interviews were very similar to the phone interview, just standard questions. Directly after the interview I was asked to take a test which measured my ability to perform the tasks required for the position. Fairly simple test, only about 10 questions. I was then contacted a week later to fill out information for a background check. A week after that I was offered the position.
