Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
Boise, ID

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SUPERVALU in March 2009.

Interview Details – Job posting site, three interviews, one with HR, two with IT representatives. Interviews with IT were technical interviews run by managers who were not up on technical skills that they were interviewing for which meant they had notes from someone on their team, but they should have had the person with the skill set in the interview so that they would understand if your answer was correct but stated in a way that only someone with the skill would understand.

Interview Question – I was asked questions about VBA for Excel coding when I was applying for a DotNet position where the requirement was for C#   Answer Question
