Manager Interview

Manager

Interviewed at Sourcebits Technologies

Interview Details – Very informal, met with a variety of people that seemed unprepared to interview. Lot of questions about personal background and successes.

Negotiation Details – Horrible. Since I didn't accept on the spot, they wanted to reduce my salary due to "lack of commitment".

Javascript Engineer Interview

Javascript Engineer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sourcebits Technologies.

Interview Details – I applied for the position through the SourceBits website and got an email a couple days later from the head of the branch (and partner) closest to me to come by to chat. It was a pretty normal initial interview.

A week or so went and I followed back up with the CEO of the company and he informed me someone would get back to me for a second interview.

I got an email that day and we set up a time to talk. Well a talk really just meant a Skype Chat, not even a Skype Voice chat, which I thought was weird.

So that day comes and the developer I was interviewing with knew I was primarily focused on Frontend technologies but the first question he asks me is if I know Rails and how do I do something in ERB. I make a guess at it because it's been some time since I've worked on a rails app. Then he pulls up the app that I worked on at my previous job and starts scrutinizing things he thinks is wrong. I hadn't touched the codebase he was looking at in over 3 months and expected to give me detailed answers of why something wasn't the way he thought it should be.

During my explanation he tells me he has to go in 5 minutes, so I quickly tried to explain. The conversation ends with me sharing a repo on github of something that I worked on. He says he's going to look at it and share with the team. I get an email 2 hours later restating that he's going to share the work and notes with his team. Another 15 mins go by and he tells me that they aren't interested moving forward.

So I applied for a JavaScript Engineer position and was asked 0 questions about javascript. I think that speaks volumes to my interview experience and the lack of organization on SourceBits behalf.

Interview Question – Not one question about javascript for a javascript engineer position   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sourcebits Technologies.

Interview Details – The interview process is very simple. First round was a screening interview. I was interviewed with basic C++ and Java questions. A bit about my projects was also a part of the interview. I was selected then.

The second round was face to face. I was asked to write an algorithm and more about the projects I have worked in.

Interview Question – I was asked about multiple platform experience. However, this is just to test your flexibility in other platforms.   Answer Question
