    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bose (Framingham, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Process took ~3 months. I had a 30 minute phone interview going over my professional experience. Didn't hear back for over a month, but was invited onsite. I prepared and gave a presentation to the team and interviewed for about 4 hours. I was asked a lot of EE fundamental questions: control theory, frequency-response of different circuits, RF stuff, DAC, voltage regulators, DSP, etc. Brush up on your EE fundamentals and you will be good to go. I received a verbal offer the day after my interview. Very happy as this I got my dream job!

    Interview

    Had a phone call with one of the recruiters. Loved my background and said I would be a great fit. Said the hiring manager will be calling me and nobody ever did. This recruiter went on vacation for a few weeks and promised me he would follow back up with me when he returned. Never did. I tried following up 2 times and no response. Unprofessional. Don't boost someone's ego by telling them how great they are and what a perfect fit they would be, then ghost them. At least send a quick email saying you went with someone else.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bose.

    Interview

    Asked to do a pretty straightforward coding exercise while online with someone. Was straightforward. Was invited for an on-site interview that was then rescinded because "you do not have enough contributions to open source projects". What? Not only have I contributed to multiple projects, I am part of one as well. Shows how little they care about work/life balance, so once I heard that I knew it was a place to avoid.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bose (Framingham, MA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Very strange visiting their HQ. The “mountain” is on a long winding circular road. I felt like I stepped back in time with the museum built into the building. I was asked to build an application prior to the interview and I guess I did well enough to visit their HQ. I was also asked to prepare and give a presentation. I do not have a laptop but sent the slides to several people but got no response and they were ill-prepared to run a presentation as the projector was not setup properly. I didn’t feel like they really cared to be interviewing anyone. However, the room was filled with half-interested employees. Only one person asked several questions at the end of the presentation. Had interviews with several groups throughout the day.

    Forget taking lunch during the day as traffic is bad in the area and ingress/egress of the office takes 30 minutes. So, you are stuck eating in the cafeteria every day or you can bring your own lunch. The cafeteria was filled with a lot of older engineers, although it was nice to see some number of female employees in the building. However, most everyone appears to be married and I felt like that is who they are looking to hire. I got tripped up on one problem from a younger engineer but solved the other problems okay. I would be very hesitant to work here as there is no life whatsoever around the office area and driving to Boston is a no-go. You will be spending your life sitting in traffic. Bose products are pretty good and I use their headphones.

    Cloud Data Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norfolk, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bose (Norfolk, MA).

    Interview

    Telephonic round: The interviewer asked me about my background. If you check the job description, it expects a candidate to know everything from Scala, Hadoop, HBase, Mapreduce, Hive, Spark streaming, AWS, ETL, Databases, NoSql. I told my work experience with respect to the work I have done with Databases, ETL, AWS, Big Data, Hive, Scala, Spark, Data science and machine learning! I had a very good conversation with the interviewer talking about our experiences and with no doubt I thought I will be called for the next round as I answered all the questions he asked. Next day I was told by HR that the interviewer wants Java, Spark streaming experience. I was shocked to see the response. I seriously doubt with most of the job description these days as to they want a candidate to know all the tools lying out there as open source. But seriously wake up, that's not possible!
