Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at SMART Technologies in November 2012.
Interview Details – Applied through company website. First round of technical interview was about few object oriented concepts. They were tying to see your thought process. Technology did not matter. They were looking for problem solver and quick learners.
After a week, I had a second round of interview called the fit interview. It was more about talking about your previous work challenges. What kind of a work you like etc. I was presented two different teams to join with different technology involved. Both looked attractive posing different challenge, So I did not choose, I said that I am fine with both options.
Both the interviews were for 50 mins. Then I saw the company laid of lot of employees on the news in the next 10 days. Then I did not hear from them.
Interview Question – questions did not appear difficult to me. Due to the amount of my experience from a well known company, I guess they did not probe much and they focused on other aspects Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Software Developer Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SMART Technologies in November 2009.
Interview Details – Their hiring process sucks.
Expect to stare at your own web camera like an idiot: they accept only online recorded interviews.
Questions were rather moronic.
I felt like I was applying to a news anchor position, not R&D.
I complained to their HR about it and received a polite "if you don't like it, take a hike" response.
Well, their loss, I got hired by someone else, who actually took time to TALK to me.
Reason for Declining – I refused to continue with the hiring process because of the web cam interview setup.
Very Easy Interview
Software Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at SMART Technologies in December 2009.
Interview Details – The interviewers friendly, curteous, open and positive. This was probably the easiest interview I have ever had. The number one suggestion is to be relaxed and honest.
