I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation in October 2012.
Interview Details – The first interview consisted of a phone interview lasting a little under an hour. They asked the details of my resume, asked what kind of extra expierence I may have had, and asked me to detail a project that I had mentioned in my resume as much as possible. It seemed they were trying to test the waters to make sure I wasn't making it up but it was expected. The second interview was more like an introduction. I was led around the building, had flattering questions asked of me, nothing too in depth and there was no coding test, something that made me feel like finally my education and expierience can speak for itself. After this it was a number of weeks before I was working for them.
Interview Question – They asked me to diagram a specific function in a code I wrote, something that I was proud of making. They didn't require me to write down the code, just explain the logic. It surprised me that for a software engineering position I wasn't being overly and stupidly tested. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sierra Nevada Corporation in July 2012.
Interview Details –
I had 2 phone interviews (one with recruiter, one with hiring manager) as well as an on-site interview with the hiring manager, and a separate panel interview.
I was told they would let me know one way or another within 2 weeks. After two weeks, I sent the recruiter and email, as well as left a voicemail for the recruiter and the hiring manager. Neither ever responded.
Additionally, the recruiter stated many times that SNC would reimburse travel expenses to the interview. I filled out the reimbursement form as instructed, but never received the reimbursement, or feedback that they needed more information or anything else.
The recruiters were very nice, but the hiring manager kept checking IM and email during interview, to the point of distraction, and asked me to repeat a couple of answers. The reason given was, "This is just how we do things around here."
Interview Question – Interview questions were quite standard (describe how you respond to competing priorities, describe a time when you had to deal with a difficult co-worker, etc.) Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied for a position and was first called from a recruiter for a pre-interview. The pre-interview was painless just general questions about my qualifications. The recruiter informed me that she would be sending my name to the hiring manager and I would get a call about interview. About a week later I received a call and we set up an green interview. This interview is done on webcam and over the phone. Pretty Neat-This would be a first for me. I had the interview and was told they would let me know either way. I also sent in a thank you letter. Well after 3 weeks passed and I hadn't heard anything I left a message with the recruiter and she sent me a rejection email the following day.
Interview Question – One question that I wasn't really prepared to answer was are there any questions I wished she would have asked me. View Answer
