    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Vision Critical in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    The job posting came out and 1 day later I saw it and applied online. 3 days after that HR called me to set up a phone interview. I was out of state at the time, caught it on email and set up the interview for a few days later when I was back at home (Monday). The interview with HR was short but good and at the end of it they wanted to set up a meeting with me and two hiring managers. The next day the email came with my interview day (in 2 days), however the next day, another email came and said they were cancelling my interview because they have found their candidate.

    Survey Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Vision Critical.

    Interview Details

    The company uses a typical 4 step IT hiring model:
    1) Phone interview with person from HR. HR person was very friendly and informative. Interview was about 30 minutes and asked the typical questions about background, experience, future goals and the soft skill questions ("What's the hardest thing you ever did?", "How do you measure success?")
    2) Emailed skill test. Clock starts ticking when HR hits send. Given 1 hour to complete and email back five coding related questions. The questions really didn't seem to match the job description. Job calls for some OOP experience, and some HTML/CSS/JavaScript experience. However, the questions didn't involve any HTML or CSS and only one question about JavaScript.
    3) In person interview with departmental manager or IT supervisor. This is about formally testing your knowledge and making sure you fit with the existing team.
    4) HR discussion regarding hiring package.

    Interview Questions
    • Using an OOP language, write a program to validate a credit card against a given psuedocode algorithm.   Answer Question
    • Using an OOP language,validate a postal code against a given psuedocode algorithm.   Answer Question
    • Using an OOP language, write a recursive routine to determine the index of the lowest value in an array. Note - must be recursive with no loops.   Answer Question
    • Using JavaScript, add a "$" before any input field on an HTML page.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Vision Critical.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a position in one of their US offices and was transferred to have interviews with another office. It was all fine except I felt that they just wanted to get some inside info from my current companies. I had more than 4 interviews and they all said "it's for future opportunity". It was just very creepy the way they did it. It was completely a waste of my time and I will definitely not consider this company in the future.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were not difficult at all. But why did you want to know how my company did A and the process instead of my role & responsibilities, and how I have achieved/not achieved?   Answer Question
