Difficult Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

The process took 4 days - interviewed at Synchronoss in July 2010.

Interview Details – Had three onsite 2:1 technical interviews. All of them were one hour long. I was mostly asked Java questions. So, I would say, prepare Java well. They asked me everything from my resume. So, I would also advise to know your resume well. They are also interested in Javascript, CSS, HTML, XML along with Java skills. I believe they don't care at all about HR type questions. I was asked none. Just be very good at technical and you are through. Although do not ignore presentation. Wear a nice suit and good pair of shoes. That is impressive anywhere and anytime.
Everyone was friendly. So, just relax and be yourself.

Interview Question – Many questions about Javascript which I wasn't able to answer.   View Answer
