    I interviewed through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at iDirect Technologies.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    I interviewed online - interviewed at iDirect Technologies in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    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
