    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xactware Solutions (Lehi, UT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    First I was seated in front of an Apple laptop and given 30 minutes to proofread, edit, and write. The test was fairly easy and somewhat humorous, given the number and types of errors. Then an HR representative, the team manager, and the team writer interviewed me. Nice folks, really.

    Interview

    The job market is always competitive when looking for good people. Companies need to realise that they're selling themselves as much as candidates are. It's important to treat people well during the interview process. Your interview process reflects the value your company places on each candidate and, by extension, each employee. Be a good ambassador for your company by conducting a professional interview, communicating honestly, and basing hiring decisions on an honest evaluation of each candidate's capabilities. Not only will you make great hires, but you'll build goodwill and enhance your future recruiting efforts.

    QA & Test Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Xactware Solutions (Salt Lake City, UT) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by my recruiter to fill out an application, then do a HireVue interview, which is an interview where you read questions and respond to your webcam. I think that was probably the hardest part, I get nervous on camera. A few business days later, I was invited into the first face to face interview with two QA Managers. They asked a lot of different behavioral questions, nothing really technical. The second in person interview was with two more QA Managers and an HR person. They asked different behavioral questions and had me test stuff to see what my thought process was. I was asked to come in for a third interview with a manager from the first interview, and the person that would be my direct manager. I guess it's not normal to have three, but he was not able to be in the first couple interviews. This one was easier, there were some behavioral question, they asked a couple technical questions, and they told me a little about the company and the job. I was offered the job that evening. The first two interviews lasted over an hour, the third was about 40 minutes.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Xactware Solutions (Lehi, UT) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and soon after received an email reply stating that they wanted me to do a digital interview. The request came from Xactware but I have a feeling that this is how their parent company Verisk Analytics likes to do things. I don't like the idea of "digital interviews" as to me it's too impersonal and I'm not into talking to machines, so since there was no way to contact a human about it, I ignored it. A week later I got a voicemail from an HR person asking if I was going to do the digital interview and was I still interested in the job. I called them back and explained that I was interested in the job but here are my issues with the digital interview. I said that while being a technically oriented person I am also a people person and to me the dgitial interview is too impersonal. I would prefer a phone or in person interview and I think that would give them a better perspective of who I am and what I have to offer. This person seemed quite surprised by my request. In short, after a little discussion, they said they would ask the hiring manger and get back to me. They never did. And now about two months later they are still looking to fill the position.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Xactware Solutions.

    Interview

    They contacted me extremely fast after I applied which means it was all automated. I then had take a coding test/interview. I understand that whole process but what made me kind of annoyed was that in the email they sent me they said it was a web cast interview which I interpreted as more like a Skype call where the interviewer would ask me questions and I would answer. It was nothing like that of course. I'm just a little bugged about how misleading the email was. I did think the coding questions asked were fair questions though.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked two questions that required coding in C# and one question in Objective-C   Answer Question

    Interview

    Did a video interview. Four recorded questions, none of which were technical. Three programming questions. There is a time limit for each but they give you plenty of time, like an hour for a pretty simple problem and thy provide test cases for you to run at the click of a button.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were pretty simple. The most difficult one I had to write a program that received payment and gave the correct amount of change in the best form (how many dollars, quarters, nickles etc.).   Answer Question
