    I interviewed through other source. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    This was for entry level position. First, I had a phone screen for 30 mins, I was asked about my projects mentioned and basic java questions. Then after a week I got my result to fly me onsite to Hoffman Estates, IL. I had four rounds onsite, two rounds were good, two were just Ok.

    First round I was just asked about my experience and behavioral questions, second was quite a lot of design questions - design class for pacman game, design patterns - singleton class, some more java questions. Third round was couple of data structures and algorithms questions, along with design questions. Fourth round was out and out java theory questions, from basic stuff to garbage collectors.

    I got the offer after a week.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at Sears in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with Sears by phone. The technical person left early, apparently because he felt insecure. That left me to speak with the business manager who was friendly at least. However the post interview feedback was delayed and super passive aggressive. Apparently in describing open source work I'd done, the "architect" stated that I said I "knew more than him". That's reading too much into facts I was stating regarding the technology, which is so new that no one can really be a complete "expert".

    Being passive aggressive on an interview doesn't look good, and means it's not a good place to work.

    Had two phone interviews. First was with HR person, who asked me several easy technical question with one word answers [Yes, No, True, False, etc.], then had another technical phone interview. Afterwards, I was called in for an interview. The interview consisted of both 1:1 interviews as well as group interviews.
