    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Diego, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at sTec in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Talked to a great director over the phone. He extended the invitation to talk to the team almost immediately.

    Came in to talk to the group. Everyone seems to be excited to talk to a new person, except one engineer seems to be preoccupied (with his work) and hardly paid any attention to the answer to his questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at sTec in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The problem with the People I met at Stec is that some of its “vps” don’t know how to articulate a question and you end up not knowing what on earth this person wants to know. Looking at some backgrounds, some of them couldn’t hold a job of more than 3 three years at other places and that should tell you something

    I talked to some of the people who had worked there and they gave a very bad feedback on the work environment and the respect they used to get for their work and one of them said it was a real “sweat shop”.

    I think, interviewing with this company is just a waste of time and working for them is just a waste of life

    Was contacted by internal recruiter who didn't really know much, but she set up my interview. I had 1 phone interview with the hiring manager, then 1 in person with her.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at sTec.

    Interview Details

    Very informal. Got an email from the manager and scheduled an interview. Met at a coffe shop and had a quick talk. It was very noisy in there and I had a hard time hearing the interveiwer. He tended to talk a lot anyway so I did not really have to talk much! I was asked one or two technical questions. Right to the point and directly related to one their current problems.
