    Interview

    The whole process takes 2 weeks, the first round is a phone interview, just talking about your background, next round is on site interview with three managers, they will let you introduce your projects, let you write a piece of code and discuss with these problems. The problems are not very difficult, if you have a good knowledge of C++, they will be quite easy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Autodesk (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Applied online and the recruiter called couple of days. The first technical interview was set in a week's time but the manager had to leave in half an hour and the rest of the interview got postponed. The next time the interview was set the manager never called and it wasted my day. Next interview date was set the hiring manager called and started with lot of development questions.It started on the wrong foot when the interviewer asked me what i do and what is the position i had applied for. Clearly the guy did not know whom he was talking to and what position he was interviewing for. At the end i knew i did not make it because most of the questions were not relevant to the job description.
