    User Interface Engineer III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bethlehem, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethlehem, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Synchronoss in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted about 3 hours after submitting my resumé. Initial contact was via phone and lasted for about 45 minutes to an hour. This process is one I respect because I understand wanting to start vetting candidates before the employer wastes their time and request that someone for a one-to-one only to find out they're not qualified.

    Once passing the phone test, I was brought in for a panel interview with the dept. manager and peers in said department. Interview lasted about 1 hour with various technical and overview type questions.

    Interview Questions
    • No surprises, really. Everything covered was what I expected an employer to inquire about regarding the field of expertise applied for. Some people have tripped over surprise hurdles in interviews, however the management and peers were specific about what they wanted and I was please to not get any surprise questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was painless and fair.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bethlehem, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bethlehem, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Synchronoss in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    There were three phases of the interview process.

    The first is a technical phone screen. The interviewer and I hit it off pretty well, and lots of java questions were asked. Lasted about an hour.

    Next was the face to face interview. For this round, it was a group interview where 2 developers and a manager interviewed me, followed by one of the architects, and then one of the directors. Briefly met the CTO as well. The developers hammered question after question at me on java, sql, oracle, xml, xsd, xsl/t, html, javascript, and css. Extremely detailed interview. So make sure you're prepared.

    The final phase was talking to the recruiter to negotiate salary, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected question was about Oracle PL/SQL. Don't remember the exact question, but my answer was "that's what DBAs are for".   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was all with the recruiter. Pretty standard where he tries to talk you down as expected.

    IT Director of Customer Service Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Bethlehem, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Bethlehem, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Synchronoss in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    This position was developed to add additional Directors for areas in the IT department. I spoke to the CIO and VP of IT and both were very nice and interesting gentlemen. I enjoyed speaking with both of them particularly the CIO. After a phone interview with each I was invited for a face to face interview.
    The 1 on 1 with the VP of IT went well and we had a nice conversation. Then I interviewed with the current director of IT. He started speed questioning me about technical problems that would have no relevance to a director level position (I did know the answers). He asked an impossible scenario question and after every answer I gave he would reply “what if that is not good enough” to the point where I did not know how to respond. This guy was unprofessional, totally unprepared and obviously defending his turf. I can’t imagine working with this guy and feel bad for those who report to him. He obviously cannot handle customer service. He also went on and on about how he works 80 hours a week and that was expected in that department. He was obviously a tech guy with zero management or delegation skills, but I’m sure he is a hard worker. I would stay away from an IT infrastructure position with this company unless you want to work all the time for a poor director.

    I was actually relieved when I hear they chose another candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • What would you do if a VP cam in the room yelling that a system was down. What would you do? Followed by What if that is not good enough after each response.   Answer Question
    • How do you physically install Sql Server. (not sure what physically means)   Answer Question
