    Senior .NET Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pasadena, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Guidance Software (Pasadena, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Spoke to the recruiter, went well. Spoke to the hiring manager and was asked some very weird questions (see Interview Questions section). Asked to do a coding test, which I did and showed to a Senior Microsoft Architect (yes they work for Microsoft) and said my coding was spot on. Submitted the test. Received an auto generated email the next day saying the position has been filled. Previous reviews also say the same (automated reply) and the reply from the company claim to be doing something about it. Obviously not. No idea what these guys are looking for, as they obviously know more than a Senior Architect working for Microsoft.

    Interview Questions

    • How many bits in a byte. Have you used the hex annotation. When I asked how they implemented these methodologies in their environment, i received a silent response.   Answer Question
