    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Technica.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by a recruiter and put through a single-round of in-person interviews by HR and an Engineering Manager. The position was dependent on passing nine internal technical tests (in 2008). This is no longer a part of the hiring process.

    Interview Questions

    Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Technica in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    They found my resume online and called me. The hr woman wanted to know my salary and i refused to tell her. She then asked what i was looking for and I told her-she said that was reasonable.

    The screening process consisted of being able to interpret research papers. I passed that and I was brought in for a face to face interview. I got the offer. But here come's the good part- I was offered almost 20k less than what I was initially told! The stories on here about them low-balling is true!

    The hr woman then tried to justify not giving me a higher salary because of "auditing purposes" and then belittled my experience to further her cause. Shady as hell!

    I rejected the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Technica in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Technica gets people to commit to the company by having rounds of interviews. I turned down other offers. Then they low balled me on salary. I get paid 20K a year less than colleagues at other companies. There is one day of orientation when they quickly go through everything and I found out that they pay once a month, I wouldn't get a full paycheck for 7 weeks, and I couldn't take any leave for 3 months. I found out later I had to take 8 hour increments of leave without pay if I needed any time off.

    Interview Questions
    • general questions about my background. Nothing too detailed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The interview was easy. After the fact was when they got me. Go somewhere else.
