    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at iDirect Technologies (Herndon, VA).

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me. Phone screen followed by in person interview. HR discussion. 4 technical interviews. 3 engineers, 1 hiring manager. Standard C++ questions...inheritance, polymorphism, write code on whiteboard...sort elements in a vector, quicksort. Basic stuff, nothing difficult or unexpected. Didn't look like the interviewers put too much thought into the interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Does not pay comparable to other companies in the area. Offered me the same as my last position initially. Had to negotiate to get a couple of thousand more.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at iDirect Technologies (Herndon, VA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online for a embedded developer position and I was contacted by a recruiter and a phone interview was setup within a week. The person conducting the interview called me at the date and time agreed upon and we had an hour long phone screening. Although, the job was for an experienced senior level engineer, my feeling was that the interviewer himself did not have the domain expertise on embedded development to conduct the interview. He, instead veered off to other topics ranging from java/C++ questions, OS fundamentals, database etc. In the end, I did not have a chance to speak about any of my projects or talk about my knowledge of embedded development at all. It was a complete waste of my time.

    Interview Questions

    • None were difficult questions, but the the shear amount of idiocy into some of these questions being asked wanted me to hang up and end the conversation right there.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at iDirect Technologies (Herndon, VA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    There was one phone screen which was brief and surprising as I wasn't expecting a call before an email confirmation about a possible phone interview. I did a decent job apparently as I was called later for an onsite interview. The onsite interview process was very good. I was interviewed by 2 peers first who gave a lot of importance to my algorithmic skills. I was later interviewed by the manager who was very encouraging during the interview. I thought I did okay. A month later, I was called and told that they would like to hire me. The work culture seemed very professional and I was told that a lot of stress is laid on taking initiative and learning what is unknown. The team seemed very solid in their fundamentals. I was told that encouragement is given to take up projects of ones liking - which pretty much implies that you are responsible for it from start to finish (covering the basic design to the detailed design, coding, unit test and possibly integration testing) They said a lot of attention is given to follow programming standards. In short they wanted their employees to code right - write code that scales well, can be reused and is object oriented. All that is absolutely true.

    Negotiation

    Negotiations will probably be unsuccessful. A lot of money is made via bonuses which is a very encouraging culture here.
