    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at 5AM Solutions (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    I went through a basic HR phone screening first that was nothing out of the ordinary. I had to fill out a questionnaire and homework. The questionnaire had some standard SDLC and framework questions, while the homework was a programming question. Fairly straightforward problem, but in addition to solving the problem they asked to include runtime information about the solution.

    I had a second phone interview that was about one hour long. The topics covered experience on my resume, SDLC practices and opinions, and challenges/successes I had faced in my career.

    The in-person interview consisted of technical and non-technical sessions, each an hour in length and conducted with two interviewers. While it was very thorough and in-depth, I didn't feel it was intentionally intimidating or filled with trick questions. I've been in several interviews where tricky programming questions are asked just to illicit a response and have the candidate think on their toes, but I didn't get that sort of strenuous pressure from this interview session.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at 5AM Solutions (Rockville, MD) in April 2009.

    Interview

    I sent my resume to my friend who worked for the company, I got a phone call back. The phone screen had a few simple technical questions and went over my professional background. After the phone screen we scheduled a face to face interview and I was emailed a technical test. After submitting my response to the test I had a 2 hour interview. The first hour went over my professional history, during the second hour we dove deeper into the technical side of things. Once that was done I got an offer letter.
