    Embedded Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Madison, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Accuray (Madison, WI) in February 2017.

    Interview

    On-site interview with hiring manager and a team member. Ended with a white-board question that was clearly thought up on the spot (by the hiring manager, not the team member), and was not related to what an embedded engineer would focus on.

    Not what I was expecting for an embedded engineer position. The interview was heavily geared toward basic software development with almost zero mention of embedded control systems. I've seen a trend lately of positions with "embedded" tacked on them that don't really require any understanding of embedded systems, and merely designate working on something that is not a standard PC... this is one of them. I'm sure it would be a great fit for a software developer, but it just wasn't what I was expecting.

    IT Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Accuray (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    This was the longest interview that I've ever had. It lasted about 4.5 hours and I interviewed with a total of 8 employees.There were no breaks during the 4.5 hours, but the time flew by as the interview went on. No technical questions - mostly management style questions. Despite not receiving an offer, I feel that I did well and I feel that the company is a solid company with a good product.

    While there, I interviewed with employees ranging from: technicians, system administrators, management and the VP of the department.

    I have nothing negative to say about the company - things just didn't work out for me.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Accuray in January 2016.

    Interview

    Three hours of phone/Skype interviews and 3.5 hours of in-person interviews. A lot of overlap in questions between the 7 or 8 different interviewers as well, meaning if we had just all been in the same meeting it would have taken about an hour and a half.

    I saw a lot of red flags during the interview process related to instability and disorganization within the company, but my research couldn't turn up anything concrete. I figured these were things I could work around (or work to improve) should I get hired.

    After the interviews I was told that they wanted me to work there, but they needed to wait until Quarter End to hire me for financial reasons. Quarter end came and went with some excuses about needing more time, and they jerked me along for a few more months. After the end of the next quarter it was pretty obvious there was no position anymore.

    The programming questions were straightforward. Brush up on your GoF patterns and a few programming puzzles and you'll be good to go.

Very friendly environment. relaxed and calm with really nice people who has been with the company for many years vs the hustle and bustle of the city.
