Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Vendavo in August 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online through their website and the recruiter called me. They scheduled a phone interview. The interview was first scheduled for 30 mins but went on for 1.2 hrs.

Interview Question – The interview kicked of well but unfortunately the interviewer was not pleasant and didnt know the concepts well. We ended up arguing over solutions and the person was not ready to accept in spite of listing out the disadvantages. I felt it was waste of time.   Answer Question

Interviewed at Vendavo

Interview Details – The HR department at Vendavo is excellent! I admire their professionalism, great communication, and accommodation. My interviews went according to the preplanned agenda and went exactly as planned. Feedback and next steps were provided to me in a timely manner. Both HR and the hiring team were easily approachable for any questions/ concerns and always got back to me with a fast turnaround. Vendavo's HR team has an efficient and well structured hiring process. They made my transition smooth and easy! Great team, excellent package, excited to be apart of this company!

Marketing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Vendavo in June 2013.

Interview Details – Terrible HR and management. They do not know how to run a company and they seem not to care about their image. My interview was delayed many times with very poor excuses. This does not make the company look good at all and if this is how they make a first impression on potential employees, I don’t want to know how badly I would be treated if I actually worked there.

Interview Question – The most difficult part was actually getting them to follow through on an interview.   Answer Question

Technical Account Manager - Strategic Customer Organization Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Palo Alto, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Vendavo in April 2011.

Interview Details – Phone screen was the first step of the overall interview process. I liked the way the overall phone screen was structured. The Hiring Manager asked if I was fully aware about the job and the company, listened to what I knew and then went ahead and spent good 10 minutes explaining the companies org structure (various divisions) and where exactly does this position fit in and what are the key responsibilities. After those 10-15 minutes I knew exactly what I was going to be doing if I get hired.
This was followed by a detailed technical interview covering Java, J2EE, Database, Performance Tuning, Application Servers, Enterprise projects and project management aspects.
Overall a very good learning experience.

Interview Question – Garbage collection behavior in J2EE servers   Answer Question

Technical Support Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Palo Alto, CA

The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Vendavo in April 2011.

Interview Details – Was approached by the recruiter by email.There was an initial phone screen from an on site recruite followed by 2 telephonic interviews with technical team members, general questions on Java & SQL. Got called by for an onsite interview.
 Person who interviewed fist came 10 mins late and obviously had not looked at my resume earlier. Wrote down the questions from a printout(it was obvious that the person didn't know the answers).
 Second person(manager) was very nice, explained about the Vendavo products and the company very well and asked relevant questions related to the job(I hope more people follow her approach and ask questions that is really relevant to the job.... and not just some random question from the net).
  Overall not a very organized company. People are not professional.

Interview Question – where do you see yourself in 5 years?   Answer Question

Interview Details – There was an initial phone screen from an on site recruiter, then from a technical person scheduled days later, general questions across j2ee & java.
.equals vs. ==
overriding hashCode();

They have a few rounds of on sites, first from the Director & VP. Very courteous and polite. There was a more open ended set of questions regarding Modeling and Design. Then a more specific set of questions about Linked Lists, and how you go about reversing them.

Interview Question – Given elements in a linked list, provide the most efficient way to reverse them.   View Answer

Easy Interview

GSD Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Palo Alto, CA

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Vendavo in November 2010.

Interview Details – It was very similar to other companies of their type. Nothing was so difficult. Initially, company showed interest in offering the position but later on when one on one conversation with top executives was requested, for some reason they thought that I am no longer interested and came back with negative response. It seems the company believes that the candidate is serious about the position if that candidate accepts the offer immediately without taking time to evaluate the offer by talking to different stakeholders in the company. In fact, at every stage company took one week to come back with next stage despite the follow ups. It was an odd experience in my 15 yrs career so far.

Interview Question – Where do you see in next 5 yrs in your career.   View Answer
