I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week – interviewed at Vonage.Interview Details
Recruiter contacted me regarding the job opportunity. Had a high level phone screen with the hiring manager, which went well. Came in for an in-person interview a week later.
In-person interview was over 4 hours long. Overall, the interview process was somewhat disorganized. I was asked the same questions multiple times by different interviewers and never really felt welcome or comfortable. The vibe was just "off".
First meeting was with two developers where we covered shell scripting, database queries/design, and a code review. They were pretty pleasant and I felt that this session went really well.
Second interview was with a senior and junior developer. The two seemed bombarded me with esoteric core java questions, design patterns, etc, but disappointingly never asked me about more holistic real-world problems I've solved. Ultimately, I felt like they wanted someone who was a walking Java encyclopedia.
Finally, they had me work on a rather difficult coding problem and I felt like I was under a lot of pressure in terms of time -- they offered little help when I struggled to find a starting point. The young guy in the room was rude, condescending, and distracting -- passing notes, fidgeting, talking, etc. He tried to help towards the end, but made me very uncomfortable throughout.
Third interview was with the VP. I thought this went OK. He asked about my resume, past projects, and some higher level technical questions. I'm not sure what the objective was since he didn't ask any behavioral questions.
Even though I was there for 4+ hours, I didn't have an in-person interview with the hiring manager at all, which was rather odd.
I'm not surprised that they decided to pass, but I'm OK with that. They aren't doing anything new or groundbreaking -- all things I've done several times in the past. There are better opportunities out there.Interview Questions
