    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Valencia College (Orlando, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interviews were a multi step process: 1: Received a phone screening by one of the HR personnel and asked to complete a "writing sample" which was more of a logic puzzle. 2: Was asked to conduct a skype interview with 5 persons including a number of team members in the department. This was very professional and the questions were fairly standard mix of technical and business related questions. 3: Was brought in for a face to face interview with the manager of the IT team and the director of the department the IT team supported. Again a very professional interview and the questions seemed more to gauge the fit of the person within the organization rather than technical. The total process took only a couple weeks from initial contact to decision.

    Interview Questions

    • Solve the problem: A park ranger is on an island that will be submerged by flood waters due to the approaching storm. On the island with the ranger are three items: a bushel of lettuce, a goat, and a wolf. The ranger has one boat large enough to hold the ranger and one of the three items to make the trip from the island to the mainland. The problem is, if left alone on either the island or the mainland, the goat would eat the lettuce, and the wolf would eat the goat. How can the ranger get all three items off of the island and onto the mainland intact, or is this task impossible and if so what item(s) should be saved? Explain in detail how you came to your decision.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Valencia College (Orlando, FL) in February 2015.

    Interviewed by 6 people at one table. They gave me a list of questions, and each person asked one or two. They went around the table asking questions. They did give me the questions about ten minutes prior, so they were not a surprise. Be sure you mention what you learned from your mistake.
