Senior Java Software Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at thePlatform in November 2010.
Interview Details – Overall a smooth hiring process. Initial contact was with an internal recruiter. Had to fill out a somewhat cumbersome SAP job application, blame thePlatform's parent company Comcast for this, prior to the actual interview process.
Interviewed with 2 individuals in management and a pair of engineers. Relaxed and organized interview process though I wasn't sure how well I was doing at the time. Evidently well enough since I received an offer
The engineering group I'm a part of is a well-managed group of senior-level engineers and QA. Other teams seem to be similar.
Interview Question – Open-ended question about a parking lot. It was purposefully vague to see which direction the interviewee took the problem. View Answer
Negotiation Details – My final offer was only slightly better than my original offer despite my best efforts. Overall the salary figure was a slight drop from my previous job, but the overall benefits package more than compensated for the difference.
