    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Plano, TX) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Klaudia in their Talent Acquisition department regarding a position she was trying to fill. She came across very friendly and professional and explained I was referred to her by someone that I had worked with in the past. Klaudia told me about the opportunity and I was intrigued by her excitement about her employer and company growth plans – It seems like a great place to work. We set up a phone interview for that evening and following a 30 minute discussion regarding my skills, education and career goals and we decided the position may have been a good fit and I decided to go in for an in person interview. Ambit was once again very accommodating in working with my schedule to set up an interview. When I arrived, I was treated professionally and interviewed within a reasonable time. The interview was thorough but pleasant. The interviewers also did a good job in explaining job requirements, expectations, and responsibilities. . I was very impressed.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I applied though a posting on a job site and was called by one of Ambit's recruiters within the week. The call was a general get to you know you and went over the position details. There was a take home style tech screening which consisted of performing some very basic tasks using both C# and also jQuery. These are fairly simple and can be looked up if you're unfamiliar.

    The next step is a panel style tech interview. Generally it's team leads mixed with some of the dev managers -- I had 5 people sitting in during my interview. There's a get-to-know-you style chat about Ambit, your resume, and work history. There was a white board session about creating a tic-tac-toe game, followed by a C# string exercise, then finally some questions about performing text searching. None are very hard, but be prepared to speak openly about the how's and whys of what you're diagramming. The interview took about 1.5 hours.

    The final round was a 1-on-1 with the director of development and the CIO. These again, were really just general questions about who you were and your hobbies as well as a small tour of the office.

    There is a drug screen and the recruiters did call my references, so lay off the weed and make sure your cousin knows to answer the phone.

    Interview Questions

    • You've been tasked with creating a web based multiplayer game of tic-tac-toe. Which tech would you use, why would you use it. (Whiteboard) What data would your app store and how would the tables look. Diagram your data structures and explain how you would determine if the game had a winner.   Answer Question
    • (Whiteboard) Using C#, write a function which determines returns true if the word is a palindrome, and false if it is not.   Answer Question
    • There was one question about how you would implement a token search using C# or MSSQL. e.g. find strings that match a pattern, or find words starting with "xyz".   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Dallas, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Had two phone interviews and had a third interview set up at their office with two phone interviewers and the hiring manager. When I arrived the phone interviewers were not available for the interview. The hiring manager interviewed me for approximately 1/2 hours. He spent most of that time monitoring and answering emails. How rude! Glad I didn't get the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ambit Energy.

    Interview

    Simple questions. None of the requirements or objectives discussed never actually applied. I got the feeling the interviewer was simply using corporate buzz words and didn't really understand the topics or concepts.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ambit Energy (Dallas, TX) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to the job through a recruiter and I interviewed in Dallas office. It started with a phone interview and an in-person interview. Met with three development managers they came in the room one after the other with 2-4 minuets apart (for sure the last one missed what i had to say about my background and skills). One manager was texting while i was talking with the rest of the team. I felt like disrespected when he was texting on his phone and felt he does not care.
