    Electronic Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Havant, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Xyratex (Havant, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Single interview and they show you round the place, including the star bucks cafe they have. At which point the manager offers you a drink and is given an EMPTY cup with a lid on. He then carries it back to the interview and sits it on the desk occasionally tapping the cup. Very strange!

    Interview Questions

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Havant, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Xyratex (Havant, England (UK)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I was taken from the reception by a group lead (one of the interviewers) and shown around with explanations what the job is about. Then we went to the head of the department office and I we went through my CV explaining what I have done in the past. After this I was asked technical question for different functionality in C and C++ e.g. what is the scope static variable, what is (pure) virtual function. I was also asked to do a mini quiz which was based around virtual functions stuff.
