Senior Software Engineer Interview

Senior Software Engineer
L'viv (Ukraine)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at SoftServe in February 2011.

Interview Details – A couple of phone interviews, one technical, one with HR, one final with HR and manager. And a long period of waiting for results.

Sometimes, after technical interview was appointed, it couldn't take place without any notification. Be prepared for hard way and waiting. Interviews itself are not hard and something special

Interview Question – It wasn't such questions. All questions are standard from programming books. Open a book about programming language, OOP/OOD, Databases + MS SQL + Databases normalization, learn it by rote and you got it, but be prepared that interviewers will find some rare question that you haven't seen. There were dummy questions without creativity. There were questions are technically not related to position, on which I'm hiring.   Answer Question

Abiliton QC Leader Interview

Anonymous Employee
Sevastopol’ (Ukraine)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at SoftServe in July 2010.

Interview Details – Process was fully conducted by HR division. One interview was also conducted by Technical Competency managers. All communication was very polite. The first was a phone call from HR manager. We talked mostly about a possibility of hiring and my expectations for the career plan etc. Then it was a phone call from QC\QA Competence manager and he asked mostly to tell him my experience in QC, type of previous projects, technologies and methodologies used, etc. After all I had a 1:1 interview with a local Dev Center principal and so we discussed our vision on the starting salary and other stuff like taxes, form of employment etc.

Interview Question – Weren't any of those in my case.   Answer Question

Human Resources Generalist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at SoftServe in September 2010.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter/headhunter. She did an initial phone interview then scheduled me for an interview for an IT company. Then I received a text message from the interviewer giving me instructions on how to get to their office. My first interview was in 2 parts. Face-to-face interview with the director. Then a teleconference/panel interview with a recruiter in their main office abroad. After the interviews, me and the director talked for about 2 hours more talking about random things. He was so accomodating. Then I was scheduled again for another interview. This was also via teleconference with 2 HR leads abroad. My interview experience with this company was okay. I was well informed about the results of my interviews. The interviewer was very kind and accomodating that you can openly talk to him and express your thoughts. The only downside is that they didn't follow the timeframe that they said in releasing results of the final interview. Despite the fact that they said they dont leave their candidates hanging, they still did it especially when they are prioritizing the applications of some candidates. They forgot to get in touch with their other candidates. When they finally contacted me after a few months, I was already connected with another company and I'm happy with it.

Interview Question – How will you keep the employees satisfaction with the company so that they won't look for other jobs   View Answer
