    I worked at Election Systems & Software

    Pros

    Good hours, flexibility, good pay

    Cons

    Nepotism/favoritism is pretty rampant and affects departments. Not much room to grow if you are looking to move up in your career. Stuck in old ways of tenure = promotions. Titles carry more weight than necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions should be by employee value and not last names.

    Desktop Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Election Systems & Software in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    After the initial phone screening, I was called in for in-person interview. I met with Development manager who had series of programming and SQL questions (Select, Inner Join, Group By) on paper (read below) for interview Q&A. Once he was finished and left the room, the director walked in and asked a variety of standard interview questions like "What are your goals?", "Why are you passionate about working as a developer?", "What type of culture do you prefer at your workplace?" etc. Then for the third round, a developer from the company logged into her computer and had several C# programming and SQL questions (Inner Join, Compare Dates).

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Loop through numbers 200 - 300 and print "Hum" if numbers divisible by 5, print "Honey" if divisible by 7, and print "Nothing" everything else.
      Question 2: What's the difference between interface and abstract class?
      Question 3: What's the difference between int and int32?
      Question 4: Print just the integers from the following list?
                  ArrayList list = new ArrayList();

                  list.Add("Hello");
                  list.Add(1);
                  list.Add(2.5);
                  list.Add(3);
                  list.Add(2);
                  list.Add("Jeremy");
                  list.Add(0);
