Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sapient in June 2010.

Interview Details

I found out about the position from a posting on LinkedIn. The initial discussion with the recruiter was very straight-forward and positive. I was setup for a phone interview with a subject matter expert. The phone interview with the SME was pretty technical. They were very interested in the kind of work I've done with my current employer. They asked me some programming questions - basic oops concepts, practices and patterns. The interviewer seemed pretty impressed with my skills. However, they never got back to me even after two weeks!

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sapient in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The recruitment team from company visited college campus. It's three stage process online written test, technical interview and HR interview. I like rate the written test as 7/10(hardness) and important point is time management to solve the questions. Individual cut-off marks are needed in four parts like reasoning, aptitude, technical and english. Technical interview is rated as 6/10. Got the option to rate myself in different subjects according to that questions are shooted. Program need to wright on the paper whichever is the language(C, C++, Java etc..) is comfortable. Last one is HR which is 8/10, because puzzles are there to solve without loosing the confidence, and avg to high level management questions will be asked.
