    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Gold Coast IT Solutions (McLean, VA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and they contacted me and we did the formal greeting interview/thing where they asked about previous projects, work eligibility, etc. Then the first screening was multiple choice. It was like first/second year Comp Sci level of difficulty. Nothing too difficult. Then came the timed (around 5 minutes a problem) video-recorded test. They asked about generics, and my mind just went "ummmmmm" (unfortunately that ended up becoming my answer). They asked about erasures, and I thought they made up a word to test how I would handle stressful situations. Either that, or they misspelled "eraser", the thing used to erase things written with a pencil and sometimes pen. And maybe I'd have to talk about erasers from a programming point of view. It turns out, "erasures" are a real thing, and it's actually a pretty common Java interview question. I thought I knew at least entry-level Java (interfaces, 4 pillars, etc) and a little SQL, but after the test it felt like I knew next to nothing about Java. The questions just kept coming, and in that moment it seemed like Java became like Mandarin to me(I don't know Mandarin...at all). They didn't even send me a courtesy rejection notice. The interview was so bad, they just cut all communications. They did mention one more step (like a phone interview) after the video interview. So maybe that was the test I thought I would be taking. I don't know. I didn't get past round 2. There was no study guides. The recruiter told me the test would be on core Java.
