Software Engineering Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at AT&T (San Diego, CA) in January 2017.

Interview

I applied online on the AT&T website in late October, and in the middle of November, I get an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone screening interview. This interview was just behavioral, so we mostly talked about my resume, personality, why I got into computer science, etc. Then, they talked about the positions that I would be interested in, so she got me in contact with another recruiter at the specific location/position.

The second recruiter contacted me for a phone interview and also asked me some more behavioral questions, and from there, they decided to put my resume forward for some hiring managers who would be interested. It took a couple of weeks before I heard that a hiring manager was interested. We set up a Skype group call (since I could not make an in-person interview) and this group asked a mix of behavioral, personality, and basic technical questions.

The Skype group call was about a month ago, and as of now, I have not heard back from them.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AT&T.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and began the interview process after exchanging a few emails. I completed two rounds of interviews, one phone screen and one Skype. I was told that I had done well and would be contacted within two weeks by a hiring manager with further details. Three weeks later, after a few failed attempts to contact them, I was finally contacted with the news that all of their onsite slots had been filled. Their lack of communication was completely unprofessional and the entire process was an unorganized joke. I have friends who had similar experiences, so this train wreck of an interview process seems to be their norm.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AT&T.

    Interview

    Phone interview was talking about the projects and how my previous skills were applicable. In person interview consisted of 3 or 4 people including the team manager and his boss. Several simple coding questions as well as some in depth conversation about how to change the answer to make it better for a different purpose. Relaxed environment.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were overly difficult. Most were based upon establishing an ability to code with the questions emphasizing how you think and work as opposed to just want you know.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Small negotiation was possible. Was hired just as they entered a hiring freeze, so there was less leeway. I did negotiate an additional 3k, started in December, and received another 3k raise effective in March.
