    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Viagogo in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    They have several interviews, which is of course standard for most tech positions. The first interview was a phone interview by one of the engineers, to assess your personality. This was fine, I was asked many questions on how to do this or that. A friend gave me feedback that the nature of the questions asked suggested that they were trying to get ideas for me on how to solve issues they may have been dealing with, such as how to improve the speed of the website, etc.

    I was called in for an in-person interview. Two people interviewed me. One of them was the "managing director". Nice fellow, thorough interview, he will go over each of your past jobs and why you left.

    The software development manager, will grill you hard on various points. He is a very smart man that knows a lot about .NET. I rarely meet individuals with his level of knowledge as a programmer. However, his goal is to focus on your weaknesses and not your strengths.

    After this interview, you may be asked to provide a demonstration. Expect to spend at least 20 to 60 hours working on this without getting paid if you want it to be impressive. During the demo, I was heckled multiple times by one of the engineers, for things such as the quality of my laptop, the color scheme of my web demo, etc. He generally had a very condescending attitude from my point of view.

    After the demo, more waiting, and my recruiter was constantly being told that I would be hired, which was then told to me, which was then told to my family and friends, who were very proud of me for my accomplishments, especially since I come from an uneducated family that could not afford college and was setting a good example for them.

    The tech manager requested that I meet with the CTO. I went into my fourth interview with the company, this time with the CTO, and the tech manager was present as well. It went ok. More rhetoric followed to my recruiter stating that the interview went well, and that I would be hired imminently. More weeks went by, and supposedly they were working on HR paperwork. It had been probably two months at this point since I had started interviewing.

    I was then told that my references that I had provided were not good enough. My recruiter told me that one of my references had been contacted. However, this reference was not contacted. I provided more references, including a former manager. They did not call any of these additional references (I provided six total to my recruiter and none of them were called).

    A couple more weeks went by and then I was told by my recruiter that they had changed their mind about hiring for the position.
