Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Declined Offer
Negative Experience

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Blue Coat Systems in March 2016.

Interview

My interview was a horrendous experience. It's supposed to be a technical phone interview for a position in bay area. Interviewer was very defensive, it's not possible to communicate with him at all. He didn't ask any technical question but making very insulting remarks. I will not recommend anyone interviewing with this company, I can't imagine working with someone like that.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Blue Coat Systems (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter and brought in. They asked me some simple questions at first. The questions got harder and harder as time went on. Overall I didn't find the questions too challenging. Stuff about HTML/CSS, Java and Javascript. Nothing was that intense. They ended with some white board questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Blue Coat Systems in July 2013.

    Interview

    Boxborough, MA location, applied last year. Applied as a referral. Hiring manager called and did a phone screen. One on-site interview. Fairly easy interview, one networking technical question. The main thing is that the interviewers wanted to make sure I understood the position and the challenges. After the single round of interviews (~5 people), ended up playing telephone/email tag for ~2 weeks until I found out that they were unable to match the compensation I requested.
